MFT Stamps | Wednesday Sketch Challenge #473

January 22, 2020

Hello friends! It’s time for a brand new Sketch Challenge from My Favorite Things! Come play along to stretch your creativity and for a chance to win a $50 MFT Gift Voucher!

For my take on the sketch today, I combined the BB Green Pastures and The Whole Herd Stamp Sets. I followed along with the sketch layout and used some red checked patterned paper from the Tiny Check Paper Pack as part of my front panel. I diecut a circle into the center of this 4.25″ x 4″ panel using the Circle STAX Die-namics Set 2. I also used this die set to create a slim white circular frame to add some contrast with my background.

For my background, I blended some Mermaid Lagoon and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks for the sky and Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide Ink for the ground. I stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored with Copic Markers, and used the coordinating dies to cut out. I also used patterned paper from the Tiny Check Paper Pack to paper piece the shirt onto my farm girl.

I stamped my sentiment onto the top left area of my card prior to adding my images. I used some 3D Foam Adhesive Squares to adhere my images, giving them some added dimension.

Here’s a look at this week’s layout! Stop by the MFT Blog for more sketch inspiration!
