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!
