MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge 335

May 31, 2017

It's time for a new sketch challenge over at the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog (WSC335).


Here is my 'liberal' take on the sketch. :)


I turned the sketch into a horizontal one, used the die-cut rainbow and "HUGS" for the horizontal rectangle element, and put the hot air balloon instead of the vertical rectangle element.

I cut the bottom edge of a Smooth White panel with the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges Die-namics and inked the lower half of the panel with Berrylicious Premium Dye ink. The panel was adhered to a card base along with a strip of patterned paper.  

I added three layers of Orange Fizz "HUGS" under the Whip Cream one. I white embossed a sentiment from the Lots of Hugs stamp set on a Latte panel and adhered it to the inked panel with foam tape. A few sequins were added to finish off the card.

Mermazing Shaker Card - MFT WSC 334

May 24, 2017

Today I'm sharing a card I made for this weeks MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge. (WSC 334).


I followed the sketch properly and used the square framed element for a shaker. 

To create my background panel, I cut watercolor paper and white embossed the sea plants from the Exquisite Ocean stamp set. Then I blended Banana Split, Peach Bellini, and Coral Crush Premium Dye inks, and spattered some white ink over it. I know that these colors are not usual for ocean. But I'm so pleased with that the mermaid, which I colored with purple, aqua, and yellow green, stands out against the background.  
After inks dried, I stamped the fish with Coral Crush ink and cut the bottom edge with the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges Die-namics. The frame was cut out with the Stitched Square Scallop Edge Frames Die-namics.

I used some Sparkling Clear and Lemon Meringue sequins for my shaker elements.
