Sketch Challenge!

Hi there

Hope you week is off to a good start and that you are all keeping safe from the dreaded Covid…

It is the middle of the week and that means a new sketch challenge has started at MFT, be sure to head HERE to view more inspiration and details on how you can enter..

I worked with several sets to complete my card, along with several dies..

Starting out by taking images from Happy Hippos, Sunflower Sweetheart and Birthday Chicks, colouring in with Copics and Polychromos, die cutting out and setting aside..

I then took a white panel and die cut a circle using the Inside and Out Circle Stax..

Using the inner part of this die cut I added ink blending using Ripe Raspberry and Wild Wisteria inks and then die cut into the panel using the Starry Night Horizontal die..

I added the white panel to a white card base, then added my blended ink panel along with the images..

I completed this card by trimming some Vellum and cutting a V into one end and then stamping and embossing a sentiment from the Bitty Birthday set, die cutting around this using Skinny Strips, placing both of these strips across the body of the Hippo..

I hope you will join the team in all the fun this week and participate, grab all those stamps and dies that you have wanted to use for a long time and come have some fun!
