Thanks For Bee-ing There–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #289


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.


That rectangle was a shaker card opportunity to me, LOL! So, I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I applied a watercolor wash to Ranger Watercolor Paper with Peerless Watercolors and a waterbrush, cut it with Blueprints 25 Die-namics for a stitched border, then cut the window out with Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics. My shaker element was created with a Heat Resistant Acetate window, popped up on foam mounting tape, and filled with Pretty Pink Posh sequins and seed beads. The striped effect from the sketch was achieved with Thick & Thin Paper Pack used for the back of the shaker element.


I cut Twice the Thanks Die-namics from Black Licorice card stock, adhered it to the window. I added two bees from LJD Fly-By Friends stamp set and LJD Fly-By Friends Die-namics to the outside for those sketch elements (and included three inside the shaker), popped up on foam. A sentiment from LJD Fly-By Friends was stamped with Versamark on Translucent Vellum, cut with Tag Builder Blueprints 4 Die-namics and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. I popped it up on clear foam tape under the sentiment.

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