Sweet Winter Wishes–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #413


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.


I thought a row of sweet trees would be a great idea for this sketch, flipped on it’s side. So, first I sponged the night sky with Cornflower and After Midnight Premium Dye Inks and splattered the sky full of stars with some slightly watered down Copic Opaque White and a small art brush, then set it aside to dry.


Next I stamped the trees from BB Ready, Set, Snow Stamp Set, colored them with Copic markers and fussy cut them out so they were more “natural” looking, and added snow by brushing on more Copic Opaque White. I added Stitched Snow Drifts (flipped so the stitching didn’t show) with a sentiment from Snow Globe Sentiments and popped it up on foam tape to ground the trees, which were also popped up on foam tape.

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!

  1. So smart to choose those cute little trees as the focal point. Kudos for fussy cutting them out too. It’s such a nice look.
