You Are My Happy Place–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #393


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 I was brain storming for this card, I envisioned the line across the center as a stretch of beach with the sea either at the bottom or the top. But what to do for them? So I did some web surfing and came across a beach scene with colorful bath houses and that was it! Most of the photos I saw were of identical sized houses but a few were of different sizes and shapes so I felt good about using Out Town Die-namics for it.


First I did the sky with Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Blue Breeze dye ink, then watercolored the houses, the sand, and the sea. I stamped the sentiment, from Beach Bunnies Stamp Set with Extreme Black Hybrid ink and added some white caps with Copic Opaque White. I cut the sea element using the unstitched side of Stitched Snow Drifts and used Peerless Watercolors. I think my houses have a decided Impressionistic look, don’t you? Monet would be proud.

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 $50 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!
