You Have a Heart of Gold–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #271


Hi, everyone, I’m back with this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s sketch. All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

I absolutely LOVE the recently released Arrow Ends Background Builder from MFT!! So I used it yet again on this card. It’s so easy to use you’ll be seeing it again and again from me, I’m quite sure. This card started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I stamped Arrow Ends Background Builder with Versamark on Ranger Watercolor paper, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, and did a watercolor wash with Peerless Watercolors—my absolute FAVES!! Then I went back and stamped the smaller arrow end images with Black Licorice hybrid ink and stamped some Distressed Patterns with Delicata Gold pigment ink.


For the off-center element of the sketch, I cut out a strip of the background I just created and popped the sides up on foam mounting tape on the base and added a narrow strip of Dots & Stripes Neutral Paper Pack to the base. Then I stamped the sentiment with Versamark on Black Licorice card stock cut with Blueprints 22 Die-namics, heat embossed with told detail embossing powder nad popped it up on foam, spanning opening. I cut Twice the Thanks from Gold Shine card stock and three copies from white card stock, adhered them together, adn adhered it to the card front. I finished off with some gold hearts cut from Blueprints 11 Die-namics and Tag Builder Blueprints 3 Die-namics.

And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you soon!
