MFT Sweet Forest Friends – Weekly Sketch Challenge #380

April 11, 2018
Hello!  It’s time for a new Weekly Wednesday Sketch Challenge from My Favorite Things!  I absolutely love these sketch challenges because there are always so many innovative ways to interpret them.
I used the adorable Sweet Forest Friends Set for my take on this week’s sketch.  I wanted to use the circle in the center of the sketch to create a fun little forest scene.  I stamped all of my images with black ink onto smooth white card stock and colored them with Copics.  I then used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  For the large circle in the middle of my card, I used the Circle STAX Die-namics Set 1 and then the Stitched Rectangle Die-namics Set 2 to cut a stitched border around the edges.

Behind this, I used the Cloud Stencil and blended some Tattered Rose and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Inks to create my sky.  I then diecut some grass with the Grassy Fields Die-namics and blended some Distress Inks (Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, and Peeled Paint) to give the grass some depth.  I added a few details to the grass with both some green Copics and a white gel pen.

I added a few trees which I diecut from Kraft Card Stock with the Birch Trees Die-namics.  I then blended these trees lightly with some Tea Dye and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  I added some leaves once the trees were placed.  For my sentiment, I heat embossed it onto black card stock with some Super Fine Detail White Embossing Powder.
