Best of Cluck–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #282

MFTWSC282_2016may26

Hi, everyone, I’m back with this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s sketch. All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

So, yeah, I might have employed a little creative license regarding this sketch :) I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then added a piece of Ranger Watercolor Paper on which I did a watercolor wash using Peerless Watercolors. I adhered it directly to my card base then build my scene. I used Fresh Squeezed Chevron Paper Pack and Grassy edges Die-namics for the bottom border, along with Farm Fence Die-namics cut from Kraft card stock.

The five circle elements were interpreted very loosely ;-) For them I used the rooster and chicken from Farm-tastic and Farm-tastic Die-namics, stamped with Black Licorice hybrid ink, cut from Ranger Watercolor Paper and colored with a small waterbrush and Peerless Watercolors. The black specks on the chicks were done with a fine point black marker. I used Radiant Sun Die-namics, cut from Sunshine card stock for the sun and Sweet Tooth card stock cut with Puffy Clouds Die-namics for the could. The sentiment is from the set and was stamped with Black Licorice hybrid ink.

And there you have my take on this week’s
MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you soon!

Because You’re the Best–CTD #394

CTD394_2016may25

Hi, everyone! Welcome to this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! This week’s hostess is our newest team member, Amy Rohl and she has chosed a very sweet inspiration piece from white to draw her colors.

I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then, on some Ranger Watercolor Paper, I stamped Lined Chevron Background with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder before popping it up on foam mounting tape on the base.

Next I added a strip of Ripe Raspberry card stock stamped with Ripe Raspberry dye ink and Lace Background, adhered to the card front on top of some rolled up silver thread. Next is some Gravel Gray card stock stamped with Versamark and a sentiment from Because You, then heat embossed with white detail embossing powder before being popped up on foam. The die from Because You was cut from Blueberry card stock three times, adhered together for strength, and also popped up on foam. I finished off with some silver glitter enamel dots.

And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the
Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown.

You’re the Man–MFT May Creative Construction with Blueprints Design Team Challenge

CCwBP_2016may24

Stars will never go out of style. From masculine looks to dreamy scenes, they have a way of adding something special to any project you include them on. Our team loves them too and in this month’s collection of projects, they’ve used Blueprints featuring stars to craft spectacular looks worthy of any recipient or occasion.

I do love to use stars on masculine cards so that’s what I went with today. I started with a Stone Gray card stock base, then added a panel of Sweet Tooth card stock on which I stamped Grid Background in a messy way with Black Licorice dye ink and followed up with Distressed Patterns with more Black Licroice dye ink along with Berrylicious dye ink and Safety Orange dye ink. Next I cut Stitched Traditional Tag STAX Die-namics from more Sweet Tooth card stock and then dry embossed it with Star Celebration Stencil to tie in with the die cut stars to come.

To the tag I added three neckties made with LJD Terrific Ties and LJD Terrific Ties Die-namics, stamped in the already mentioned inks and popped up on foam. Then I added a strip of Houndstooth Background, one of Plaid Background Builder stamped with the color palette, and finally the sentiment strip, cut from Black Licorice card stock using Blueprints 7 Die-namics. I stamped it with the sentiment from the set with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, then popped it up on foam. To follow the theme, I cut stars from Silver Sparkle card stock using Blueprints 11 Die-namics, Blueprints 18 Die-namics, and Blueprints 25 Die-namics and scattered them on the card, some popped up on foam. I finished off with some matching enamel dots and baker’s twine for the tag.

And that’s it from me today—thanks so much for stopping by. See you soon!
