Hello! I’d love to share with you today a card that I made for both the MFT Sketch and Color Challenge. I made this for someone very dear to me who is going through a difficult time at the moment.

I followed these two inspirational photos to create my card. To start, I first created the background of my card on Neenah Classic Crest 80lb Solar White Cardstock. I began by simply blending some TSOL Sky Blue Ink onto my paper using a large Clarity Stencil Brush. I then used the MFT Grassy Fields Die-namics and some Distress Ink (Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Forest Moss) to create my grass. I followed THIS awesome video tutorial by Nina Marie Trapani to create my grass. I love how it turned out! The Copic Sketch Markers that I used to highlight my grass were YG07, YG09 and G09.
I then stamped and colored my images on a separate piece of paper using the MFT Adorable Elephants Stamp Set. I have had this set for awhile now but have not had the chance to use them yet. I was so excited to be able to do so since this set is one of my absolute favorites!
I once again used my Copic Sketch Markers to color my images. The colors that I used are as follows: Elephant: C00, C0, C3, C5; Elephant’s Ears: RV0000, RV10, R81; Butterflies: R11, R32, R22; Balloon: B000, B00, BG53, BG57. I then used the coordinating dies to cut out my images.
I trimmed my background using the large stitched rectangle die that is part of the MFT Die-namics Blueprints 29 Die Set. After adding some patterned paper from the MFT Proper Pinstripes Paper Pack, I then attached my background scene with a piece of foam. Lastly, I added some white gel pen onto my images and background for some added accents. For the “cloudy” border, I used the MFT Die-namics Stitched Scallop Basic Edges on white cardstock. I stamped my sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and attached this scalloped border piece and all of my images to my card base with foam squares.
