Joy to the World - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #516


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.

The minute I saw this globe image from MFT's just-released Miss Your Hugs Card Kit I wanted to use it at a Christmas Ornament. I almost did it during Countdown but saw this sketch first and knew it would work so well with it so I held off ;-)

To begin, I stamped the globe image using Berrylicious and Gumdrop Green dye inks and cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics. The "ornament cap was cut from Gold Shine card stock with Tag Builder Blueprints 6, and adhered with glue. Next I cut Tall Snow Globe Die-namics from Strathmore Bristol Smooth card stock and sponged the night sky background using Broken China, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot Distress Inks, covered it with Ranger Micro Glaze, and spattered it with slightly watered-down white craft paint for the stars. The stamped globe ornament was adhered with foam tape and "tied on" with hemp cord.

Next I covered a Sweet Tooth card stock base with Gift Wrap Patterned Paper. I cut two versions of Stitched Cloud Edges Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock and sandwiched the snow globe die cut between them with foam tape after stamping the sentiment from Bitty Holiday Wishes on the top one. To finish off, I added some stars, cut from Silver Sparkle and Gold Sparkle card stock cut with Tag Builder Blueprints Die-namics.

And there you have it! Now it’s YOUR turn to play! 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!
