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.
Well, this one was definitely a challenge, LOL!! I started by creating my background to cover the entire card front using Drifts & Hills Stencil and Mini Cloud Edges Stencil. I cut the square out with Square Peek-a-Boo Window Die-namics, stamped the sentiment from Sending Smooches Stamp Set, popped the main part up on foam tape, and replaced the cutout, adhering it directly to the card base. Then I added strips of Silver Sparkle card stock and Dots & Stripes Neutrals patterned paper for the bottom element.
I stamped the two little birdies from Dashing Deer with Black Licorice hybrid ink, cut them out with the coordinating dies, colored with Copics, and popped them up in the window with foam tape. For the star element, I used some creative license and tied a piece of mistletoe from Dashing Deer to a limb created by cutting a trunk from Tree-mendous Die-namics from Cherry Wood Adhesive Backed sheet and adding snow with glue and White Diamond Microfine Glitter. I “tied” it on with a little bow from Blueprints 26. IRL you can see the mistletoe berries are Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard.
And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Challenge Blog. You have the chance to win a $20 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!
