• MFT sketch challenge

    Hello everyone!

    I wanted to create a card for the new My favorite things sketch challenge and thought it was about time for me to start my Christmas card collection.
    As always I tried to incorporate other challenges - the MFT color challenge (again), masking, sparkle and texture.

    I cut a panel of Neenah cardstock to about 4,5x4,25 inches. I stamped a bear from the MFT Polar bear pals and colored it with copics. I also stamped the image on a Post-it and fuzzy cut it to mask the bear. From another Post-it I cut with a Nellie Snellen Multi frame circle die. I placed it centering the bear. I masked the rest of my panel as well and ink blended over the bear using Tumbled glass, Salty ocean and Chipped sapphire Distress inks. I diluted a drop of white acrylic paint with a bit of water and splattered it over the Distress ink.

    Copics used:
    B39, B69, B29, BG09, BG07, BG57, BG53
    W3, W1, W0
    C5, C3, C1

    After it dried I removed the masks and replaced with the negative mask, the circle. Using the grid on my Tonic glass mat I adhered a strip of double sided tape to the top and bottom of the panel. I did not remove the backing. I then used the Creative Expressions Snow is falling stencil with Ranger opaque texture paste. After the texture paste had dried I placed the panel on a piece of computer paper and removed the tape backing. I then covered it with WOW! Santorini sparkles, folded over the paper and burnished the glitter in with my bonefolder.

    I popped up the panel with craft foam for dimension and backed the panel with white cardstock. The sentiment is from MFT Merry everything and stamped with Salty ocean Oxide ink on white cardstock and popped up with foam squares.

    That's it from me today, I hope you've been inspired!
    Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
