Warmest Wishes for a Happy Holiday - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #463


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.

So I had to do an ornament for this sketch, right? And of course I had to make that ornament a shaker element, right? To start, I did a watercolor wash on Ranger Watercolor paper with Peerless Watercolors and dried it with a heat tool. Because I can never wait. Then I cut the opening with Circle STAX Set 1, adhered clear acetate card stock on the back with 1/8” Scor-Tape and cut a fun foam sheet to fit complete with the circle cut out. I like to use a fun foam back when I have paper that’s warped like watercoloring will do and in this case it acted as my shaker element “dam”, too. Once that was in place I added sequins and seed beads and closed up the back with Sweet Tooth card stock. Because I didn’t plan ahead, I had to pry up the edge a bit to add my silver cord for the hanger but it all worked out :)

For the cap, I cut Silver Shine card stock with Tag Builder Blueprints Die-namics, popped it up on foam on each side of the cord, and added the bow. Next I stamped Serene Snowflakes on Translucent Vellum, heat embossed with silver detail embossing powder, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics and adhered it to the front of the ornament with clear foam tape. The sentiment is from LLD Hug in a Mug Stamp Set and was done the same way, on a Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strip Die-namics die cut.

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!
