Drink Up the Sunshine–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #500

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 might have used a little artistic license in my interpretation of this sketch ;-) But that’s what they’re for, amirite? They serve as a jumping off place to get your creativity jumping and mine took off, LOL! Since it’s Summer and SO hot, I kept going back to the swimming pool idea and finally just gave up and went with the flow.

Since I hadn’t used the Perfect Pool Water Stencil yet that was a great place to start. I sponged Tumbled Glass, Broken China, and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks through it onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and set it aside to dry. Next I cut Swimming Pool Die-namics from Sour Apple card stock then sponged on some Sour Apple and Gumdrop Green dye inks to add some visual dimension. I cut another pool from Cement Gray card stock, trimmed off the pool edge, and added it to the Sour Apple to simulate a concrete edge, the created a shaker element using Swimming Pool Shaker Pouches and some silver seed beads.

Next I stamped the images from BB Drink Up the Sunshine Stamp Set, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored them with Copic markers. The sentiment was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics.

I cut another Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips from Black & White Stripes Paper Pad and then the strips and images were adhered with foam tape for dimension. I love this little scene and am SO envious of that little girl, LOL!

And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the
