You’ve Been on My Mind–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #397


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.


This sketch is so versatile—you could do SO much with it, but my first thought was a shaker element so that center circle so I went with it. I did a watercolor background on Ranger Watercolor Paper then cut it out with Blueprints 31 Die-namics. Next I cut the center out with LLD Circle Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics and created my shaker element with a Circle Shaker Pouch, Peacock Feathers Nuvo Pure Sheen Confetti, and Silver Shimmer Seed beads. I cut Black & White Stripes Paper Pack with Blueprints 31 Die-namics and it fits perfectly around the circle pouch. I stamped the sentiment from Fluttering Friends Stamp Set and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base.


Then I stamped the images from Fluttering Friends Stamp Set with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink on No-Line Coloring Card Stock, then colored them with Copic markers, then adhered them to the pouch and was done!

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!
