Just Bee-cause–My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge #362


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.


OK, then, this one certainly stumped me! I seldom follow a sketch rigidly so I really had to wrack my brain to come up with an out-of-the-box idea for those two circles and horizontal elements. So I looked at stamp sets and Die-namics until I came up with little scene. To start, I sponged the background using Berrylicious dye ink and Sour Apple Dye ink. The top element is a sun, cut with Tag Builder Blueprints 6 Die-namics from Sunshine card stock and I use clouds from Meant to Be Stamp Set for the horizontal element.


Next I stamped, cut, and colored the bee skep from Meant to Bee and Meant to Bee Die-namics, along with one of the bees and the flight trail, which I fussy cut out, used for the vertical element. I stamped the sentiment then popped them all up on foam tape. Fun!!

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!
