Hello everyone! It’s time for a new Wednesday Sketch Challenge from My Favorite Things! This week’s sketch is fairly simple but a lot of fun because it can be interpreted in so many different ways.
I used the cute little shark from the Beach Buds Stamp Set set on a bold blue ocean background for my take on this week’s sketch. I started by trimming a piece of Gravel Gray Prestige Card Stock to 3″ x 3″ and adhering it at an angle to a standard A2 white card base.
I then blended some Distress Oxide Inks (Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, and Chipped Sapphire) onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Once blended, I used a #4 paintbrush to splatter this piece loosely with some water. I let it sit for about a minute before blotting it dry with a clean paper towel. I love adding these drops because it really makes the background resemble water.
I stamped my sentiment with Black Ink onto the bottom center of my card and then added my shark with some 3D Foam Adhesive Squares. I had colored my shark with some Cool Gray (0, C00, C1, C2, C4, C5) Copic Markers and used the coordinating Beach Buds Die set to cut him out.
Here’s a look at this week’s sketch. Make sure to head on over to the MFT Blog for some more inspiration and the link to enter. Come play along with us for a chance to win a $50 MFT Gift Voucher!
