Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas-MFT Sketch Challenge

Hello Crafty Friends! Welcome to my slice of the internet. Today I am sharing the card I made for MFT’s Sketch Challenge 448. This sketch was pretty interesting, and I thinkI took an interesting approach to it. At least, I hope I did something a bit different. Let me know below!

Here is the sketch:

And….my card:

I’ve had the urge to play with the MFT Christmas Background, with either watercolor or ink blending. I ended up doing both (I used the ink blending for another challenge).

I started out by stamping the stamp with Versamark ink and embossing it with Wow Opaque White Detail powder. Then, I sprinkled Blue Blitz Nuvo Shimmer Powder and spritzed it with water. I set that aside to dry.

While waiting, I got out a scrap of Gina K Blue Raspberry and stamped the sentiment from Secret Santa with Versamark ink. I heat embossed the sentiment with more white embossing powder.

Once the panel was dry, I trimmed strips out of it with my Tim Holtz Trimmer. The grid marks on the trimmer made it easy to measure out the strips. Once I had it trimmed, I added it to a panel of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White card base, with Fun Foam. Then I added the sentiment strip with foam tape.

What do you think? I bit of a different approach to the sketch challenge. I wish you could see the shimmer that is visible in real life! It’s so pretty.

Thanks for stopping by!
