Celebrate - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #551


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.

This one threw me for a little bit--until I looked through my dies to see what I had that would work. Easy peasy! Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips and Skinny Strips Die-namics did all the heavy lifting on this card!

I started by cutting a variety of sizes from Stripe Splash Patterned Paper and Fire Coral, Limelight, and Butterscotch card stocks and arranged them on a Sweet Tooth card stock panel until I was happy. I added a strip of Black Licorice at the top, first, then adhered the fishtails--some directly and some on foam. To complete the sketch, I added a strip of Black & White Stripes Patterned Paper across the top.

Then I stamped an image from Bunch of Happiness Stamp Set on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics and colored it with Copic markers. A sentiment from the set was stamped at the bottom of the card front then it was adhered to a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape. The colored image was popped up on foam and Celebrate Die-namics, cut from Black Licorice card stock was added at the top.

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!
