I'm Glad You're in My Orbit - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #530


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 thought the two off-center elements could look like orbiting planets or moons so I got out Best Friends in the Universe Stamp Set and Die-namics for this card. To begin, I sponged the background on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper, cut with Slimline Starter Die-namics, using Broken China, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot Distress Inks. When dry, I covered it with Ranger Micro Glaze and then spattered it with diluted white craft paint for the stars and adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base.

The images from Blastoff Buddies Stamp Set were stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black Hybrid ink, cut with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored with Copic markers. The moon was created by cutting Chantilly Cream card stock with A2 Circle STAX and stamping with Distressed Patterns and Cement Gray dye ink. 

The moon and images were adhered on the sky background directly and with foam tape. The sentiment was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Skinny Strips Die-namics and popped up on foam for the finish.

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!
