Happy Birthday – MFT Sketch Challenge 381

April 18, 2018
Hello crafty friends!  It’s time for another Weekly Sketch Challenge from My Favorite Things!  I encourage you to come and play along!  It’s a lot of fun to participate and to challenge yourself to try something different.
For my take on this week’s sketch, I used a cute little sheep from the BB Ewe Are the Best Stamp Set.  I stamped my image onto some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb Card Stock and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  (Sheep: W00, W1, W2, W4, W5 & W7; Balloon: B000, B21, B24, B26; Hat: G20, YG25, G19).  I also used Copics for my small scenic background. (Sky: B0000, B000, B00, B01l; Grass: YG01, YG06, YG13, YG17).
 For my background, I diecut a piece of patterned paper from the Plaid Patterns Paper Pack with the large stitched scalloped rectangle die from the Blueprints Die-namics 27.  I then cut a small circle in this piece using the Circle STAX 1 Die-namics.  I attached my scenic background behind this open circle and then added a diecut frame on top using the Single Stitch Line Circle Frames Die-namics.
I used the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the Ocean Pals Stamp Set and heat embossed it onto black card stock using Super Fine Detail White Embossing Powder.  I then used one of the small dies from the Hearts In a Row Vertical Die-namics to cut it out.  I attached it with some liquid adhesive after I attached my sheep with some 3D foam squares for some added dimension.  Lastly, I added some Iridescent Bubbles for embellishment.
Here’s a look at this week’s sketch!  Head on over to the MFT Challenge and Inspiration Blog to see what designs other participating team members have come up with.  And don’t forget to play along for a chance to win an MFT Gift Voucher! (Winner chosen at random).
Thanks so much for dropping by!  Have a wonderful day!
