MFT Sketch Challenge #367: You Make me Smile Card

IMG_20180114_180959675

This is the card I created for this weeks Sketch Challenge over at MFT Stamps.  I stamped the images from MFT Stamps Warm and Fuzzy Friends in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  They were colored using various Prismacolor colored pencils and blended with the blender pencil.  Since I was going for the “one layer” look, I masked off the stamped images and then ink blended the background using Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn distress inks.  For the detailed edge on the blue background, I embossed it with a wood grain embossing folder.  For the final details of the card I added white stitched lines around the gray frame, applied wink of stella to the flames on the fire and marshmallow, and finally coated the flames in glossy accents.  Last but not least, I decided to angle the one end of the sentiment strip and round the corners of the gray Frame.

Supplies:

  • Prismacolor colored pencils
  • Prismacolor Blender Pencil
  • Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Pen
  • Glossy Accents
  • Gelly Roll White Gel Pen
  • Wood grain Embossing Folder
  • MFT Stamps: Warm and Fuzzy Friends

As a part of this weeks My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge, I decided to use one of their stamp sets called, Adorable Elephants.  I stamped all of the images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then used my Brother Scan n Cut to cut them out.  They were colored using various shades of warm gray’s and red violet copic markers.  They were then mounted onto a 5 1/4 x 4 inch purple piece of cardstock with foam tape.  To help ground them I cut a piece of green cardstock using the grassy borders die from Lawn Fawn.  To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment in Delicata Gold Shimmer ink and heat embossed it with Classic Gold Embossing Powder by Nuvo.  The butterflies were covered in Wink of Stella Shimmer pen and the white stitched lines were added with a white Gelly Roll pen.

  • Lawn Fawn Grassy Border Dies
