We Were Meant To Bee Friends – MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge 398

August 15, 2018
Hello everyone!  The latest Wednesday Sketch Challenge from My Favorite Things has just begun!  As always, I encourage you to give the Sketch Challenge a try each week because it’s great practice and helps to really stretch your creativity out of your comfort zones.
For my take on the sketch this week, I went with a honeycomb-style card.  I used the cute little bees from the Meant to Bee Stamp Set and placed them in various positions around the card.  To start my card, I first heat embossed a 4.25″ x 5.5″ white panel with the Honeycomb Background Die using Clear Embossing Powder.  I then lightly blended a portion of this embossed panel with some yellow Distress Oxide Inks (Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber).

After adding a strip of Kraft Card Stock (stamped with my sentiment), I then diecut this panel twice with the Circle STAX Die-namics.  I glued some clear acetate behind these circular windows and used some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape on the back of this panel to create my shaker portion.  For my shaker embellishment, I added some Sparkling Crystals and some Metallic Gold Jewels by Pretty Pink Posh.

For some added contrast, I also adhered some scalloped circular frames around each window by diecutting a piece of Hot Fudge Prestige Card Stock with the Stitched Circle Scalloped-Edge Frames Die-namics.  Lastly, I stamped my bees with Copic friendly Black Ink onto some smooth white card stock, colored them with Copics and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  I then attached my bees with some 3D Foam Squares for some added dimension.

Here’s a look at this week’s Sketch Challenge layout.  What will you create?  The sky’s the limit!  Make sure to stop by the MFT Challenge & Inspiration Blog for more inspiration from the rest of the team!  And, don’t forget that for every time you enter, you have the chance to be the random winner of a $50 MFT Gift Voucher!
