Stars—Look How They Shine for You–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #287


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 couldn’t resist using that circle element for a shaker—I just couldn’t!! I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then stamped Tiny Stars Background with Versamark on Ranger Watercolor Paper, heat embossed it with white detail embossing powder, and popped it up on the base with foam mounting tape


Next I cut Stone Gray card stock with Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and cut a hole with Inside & Out Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. I stamped the sentiment from LLD Count the Stars with Cornflower dye ink and created my shaker element with foam mounting tape, Heat Resistant Acetate and Pretty Pink Posh sequins and adhered it to the card front. For the horizontal element across the circle I added LLD Stars & Wishes Die-namics, cut from Silver Sparkle card stock, and finished off with stars cut with Blueprints 17 Die-namics and Blueprints 25 Die-namics, also cut from Silver Sparkle card stock.

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

  1. Wonderful watercoloring, always! :) Love that you used this sketch as a shaker card...wish I had considered that! ;)

  2. I love the blue color you chose. Do you watercolor before or after heat embossing the stars?

    1. Hi, Mary, thanks for stopping by! I heat emboss first. Hope that helps!
