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.
Wowza, this was a super fun sketch!!! I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base and spread some molding paste through Winter Stencil Strips using the knitted sweater pattern—the dimension with this stencil is amazing! While that was drying I dry embossed more Sweet Tooth card stock with Pine Tree Forest Stencil and then popped it up on the base with foam tape. Next I prepped the background of my Stitched Traditional Tag STAX cut from Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper using Distress Inks: Stormy Sky for the sky and Weathered Wood for the ice. I stamped the skate marks and the giraffe image with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut the giraffe out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored it with Copic markers.
I added snow drifts using Snowy Hillside Die-namics, stamped the trees from the set, and put the scene together. After splattering the whole thing with white acrylic ink and adding a baker’s twine tie, I popped it up on the card front 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 adhering it, also with foam.
And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Blog. You have the chance to win a $50 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!
