You’re the Captain of my Heart – MFT Stamps

February 5, 2018

Hello friends!  I’m usually not a big fan of Mondays but I’m glad that it’s a new week and pray that it goes much better than last!  My son picked up a respiratory infection which took a pretty bad hit on his lungs (he has asthma).  It was so sudden and scary.  Thankfully, he seems to be on the mend now.  It’s hard trying to keep a 7-year old from running around and making things worse, lol.

I’d love to share with you a card that I made this weekend for the weekly MFT Sketch Challenge (sketch shown below). 

MFT Sketch Challenge #370

I used the awesome MFT Stamps BB Party Like a Pirate Stamp Set to create my take on this sketch.  To start, I stamped my images onto some smooth white card stock, colored them with Copic Sketch Markers and then die cut them with the coordinating dies.  For the background, I used a 4″x5.25″ piece of MFT Kraft Card Stock and lightly drew a tattered paper design around the edge and then used some scissors to cut it out.

I then blended the card stock edges with some Gingersnap and Chocolate Inks from The Stamps of Life.  This ink is one of my favorites and blends so nicely!  I used the MFT Stitched Heart STAX to die cut my heart window and added some stitch lines around the outside using a white gel pen.  For the ocean, I blended some Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks and used the MFT Die-namics Ocean Waves to cut it out.  Lastly, I heat embossed my sentiment with Super Fine Detail White Embossing Powder.  

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:
