MFT Sketch with Jungle Gym

It's another week and another MFT sketch challenge! This time I used the Jungle Gym stamps - such cuteness!!! I can't stand it. Anyhow, here's the sketch:



And here's the card:


I made this one for my grandson to wish him a great first day back to pre-school.

Thanks for stopping by!

A SUPER MFT sketch!


Another sketch, another card....time for another MFT challenge!

Here's the sketch for the week:


And here's the card:


Do you see the sketch? Spin it 90 degrees to the left, so the "stripes" are at the bottom. There it is! I used a cityscape stamp (NOT from MFT) as the pointed edge, then added my superhero boy and the saying and lightening bolts as the stripe (only 1....creative license... lol). I colored the clouds and cityscape with colored pencils to keep the colors soft and the boy with Copics so he stands out. This is going to be the first of random cards I send my grandson. He'll enjoy getting his own mail once in awhile, even though he lives just blocks from me.

Thanks for visiting!

MFT Sketch Time

I missed a week (or two) of the MFT Sketch Challenges but I loved this week's sketch and just got these stamps so I squeezed in some time to play!

Here's the sketch:


And here's my card:



I wanted to try some colored pencils on kraft cardstock and they worked out ok but I'm not crazy about the pencil "lines" being seen so much (really noticeable on the bear). But it was a nice departure from markers for a change. And these forest animals are so cute, who cares how they're colored! Thanks for looking!

Camp Create - Spectacular Shakers

Back again with another card for MFT's Camp Create 2017. There's 5 challenges total (plus a bonus) and so far I've only finished 2 and the deadline is tomorrow! But that's ok - I enjoyed the little bit of time I had to play.

Here's my Spectacular Shaker card:



I used the Beast Friends and Oh Christmas Trees stamp sets and a couple of MFT dies to create my shaker card. As you can see, the Christmas tree is stamped in the window, behind acetate, which holds the shaker elements. I colored and watercolored the tree and added the "plaid" to the Yeti's scarf using Copic markers. The sentiment was also added to the front of the card behind the acetate panel. This was a fun one to make and I earned this camp badge:


Will I get any more camp challenges finished in time? We'll see! Thanks for stopping by!
