Birthday Fishes–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #437

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 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.

When I first looked at this sketch I was a little like, “I don’t want to use circles, so what CAN I use?” So I started looking through my stamps and saw these different size fish and knew they would work! First I created my background by first heat embossing Whimsical Waves Background on Ranger Watercolor paper, then I did a watercolor wash with Peerless watercolors and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base when it was dry.

The fishies were stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored with Copic markers, and adhered with foam tape. I finished off by heat embossing the sentiment on Black Licorice card stock cut with Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics.

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!
