Blessings–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #403


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.


If you saw my post on Day Three of MFT’s September Release you saw I posted a video showing how I do my alcohol ink backgrounds. The background I created ended up being used on this card so I’m posting the video again if you want to see.

For today’s card, I started with a Primitive Cream card stock base. Then I matted some Primitive White card stock with Gold Shine card stock, cut my background to fit the diagonal element of the sketch, and adhered them all together before popping them up on the base with foam tape. I stamped the pumpkins from BB Witch Way Is the Candy? Stamp Set with Kraft Hybrid ink, colored with Copic markers, and fussy cut them out.


I adhered them to the rectangle element (which was popped up on foam) along with some Fab Foliage Die-namics cut from Sour Apple, Tangy Orange, and Jellybean Green card stock using hot glue. To finish, I cut Blessed & Blessings Die-namics from Gold Shine card stock and twice from Primitive White card stock, adhered together in a stack and then above the pumpkins, 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!
