Thinking of You–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #394


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.

As promised, I have another card using alcohol inks. This time I went with orange and purple—no reason, I just thought the two ink colors would play nicely together and they did. Again, I just started playing and working the ink and alcohol, with a small art brush and air brush system until I was done. So. Much, Fun! For the card itself I stamped a sentiment from Brushstroke Expressions Stamp Set with Versamark and heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder on some Sweet Tooth card stock. I matted that with Gold Shine card stock and popped it up on foam on a card base covered with Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Patterned Paper.


I cut my inked panel with Mod Square STAX Die-namics, which I popped up on foam on the card front. To finish off, I added some Sprinkles to match.

To add some shimmer to this card, I used gold deco foil and burnished with a bone folder. Hopefully you can see it a little better in this view.


And there you have it—my second alcohol ink project. I am jazzed!!! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Challenge Blog. You have the chance to win a $50 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!
