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.
I hadn’t had a chance to play with Best Fins Stamp Set and Die-namics from MFT’s June Release so I thought I’d create an underwater scene for this card. I giggle every time I read that sentiment so I designed my card around it. To begin, I created the water sponging Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper with Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon, and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks. Once they were dry I stenciled some sunlight using Ray of Light Stencil and white craft paint. Guys, this is a game changer for me. I got so tired of waiting for white pigment ink to dry so I never used it. This dries so fast!! Once it WAS dry, I stamped the schooling fish from BB Friends with Fins Stamp Set with Extreme Black hybrid ink and set it aside.
Next I stamped the images on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics and colored them with Copic markers.
To create the opening, since we don’t have any oval dies now (sniff, sniff) I used Elegant Rectangle STAX. I popped it up on foam on the sponged background and adhered it to a Sweet Tooth cards tock base with some paper from Fun in the Sun Paper Pad. I arranged and adhered the stamped and colored images and moved the sentiment to the top—heat embossed on Poppy card stock cut with Blueprints 27 Die-namics.
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!
