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.
One thing I do when I start to work on a sketch is to look through my stamps and dies to see if something jumps out as a possible theme for the card. For this card Artist Palette and Brush Die-namics all but hit me upside the head, LOL! Add this to the fact that I’d not used it since it came out of the vault last summer because when it shipped to the design team and went live in the store I was out of the country and couldn’t! This was the perfect time to remedy that situation!
To begin, I cut the brushes from Kraft card stock, the ferrule from Silver Shine card stock, and the bristle part from Cornflower, Pineapple, and Wild Cherry card stocks. I added some Crystal Effects to the bristles and when they were dry adhered all the pieces together to complete my brushes.
While they were drying I added Black and White Dots Paper Pack to a Sweet Tooth card stock card base, stamped the spatter from Distressed Patterns Stamp Set with Cornflower, Pineapple, and Wild Cherry dye inks and popped the card front up on the base with foam tape. Once the brushes were done I adhered them with very narrow strips of foam tape and added the sentiment, from PI You Color My World, heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock and also popped up on 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. Winners are chosen at random, so everyone has a chance!
