It’s been a while since I’ve done an MFT Sketch Challenge. Here’s this week’s Sketch:
For this sketch I decided to pull out MFT’s Mermazing and Gill Friends Stamp sets.
I just wanted to keep things simple and used the image of the sitting mermaid, turtle, clown fish, and rock and I stamped them with Hero Arts Intense Black Ink. I used the following Copic Markers:
Rock: W5, W3, W2
Turtle: YG09, YG06, YG03, BG18, BG15, BG13
Fish: YR68, YR16, YR02, C1, 0
Mermaid: R29, R27,R35, R17, E95, E93, E02, Y06, V17, V15, V12, BG78,BG75, BG72, BG70
I also added white highlights with a Sakura Gelly Roll Pen and added Clear Wink of Stella to the mermaid’s fin and starfish hair accessory.
I ink blended the background panel with Distress Oxide Inks Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, and Mermaid Lagoon. I hit it with my heat gun to make sure it was dry before stamping MFT’s Whimsical Waves Background. I heat embossed the background stamp with WOW Cloud Nine Embossing Powder and trimmed down the panel so it was slightly smaller than an A2 size. It’s hard to tell in the photo but the Cloud Nine Embossing Powder is quite glittery and so much prettier in person. I cut a stitched matte using the largest stitched die from Mama Elephant’s Peek A Frames Die set and adhered the ink blended panel to it.
I cut down 3 strips of dark turquoise card stock and glued them to my card base.
I cut the second smallest frame from MFT’s Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frames and created a shaker window with acetate and 3M foam tape. I adhered my images to the window and filled it with a variety of sequins, chunky glitter, and confetti.
That finishes up my card. I hope you all like it! For details of the challenge or if you wanted to enter it for yourself, you can check it out here.
