MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #300


Are you ready for this week's Wednesday Sketch Challenge
Here's Sketch #300.



And here's my take on it. You gotta love a penguin with a cocktail!


Yellow striped paper was cut with the rectangle element from Blueprints 24
and adhered to a white top folding card. I ink distressed a stitched arch
with Distress inks and spattered water over the surface.

The penguin was colored with Copics and adhered to the card with foam tape.
I stamped the sentiment and trimmed it into a banner and added it next to
the penguin. Some Nuvo Crystal Drops finished off the card.

Visit the Card Challenges blog for all the details and deadlines and come join
the challenge. You can win up to a $20 MFT gift voucher!

MFT + STAMPtember® 2016




STAMPtember® is winding down over at Simon Says Stamp, and today, there's
an exclusive, limited edition stamp set on sale, designed by My Favorite Things.

Check out this awesome set of buildable flowers, Best Wishes Blooms.



For my card, I inked up the stamps with Distress inks and spritzed them with water
before stamping on watercolor card stock. I stamped the sentiment, then flicked
 black paint over the surface, and finished off the card with black Nuvo Crystal Drops.

2016 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop


It's time for one of my favorite blog hops--the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!
And this season, I'm so ready, thanks to some stamps and dies that were
just waiting to be used for the hop!


I ink distressed the teapot and teacups in "autumn" colors and spattered them
with water. They were adhered to a panel that was stamped tone on tone with 
the Lined Up Dots Background. I stamped the sentiment and finished off 
the card with Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Big thanks to Amy and her crew for coordinating another awesome hop and
rounding up all of those generous sponsors! I'm so looking forward to seeing
all of the projects in the gallery! Thanks for stopping by!

CAS(E) this Sketch 191


Here's this week's CAS(E) this Sketch #191, brought to you by Chrissy.


And here's my take on it.


I chose shapes and frames in "tropical" colors and layered them per the
sketch, then stamped the flowers and leaves and the sentiment. I added color
with Prismacolor pencils and finished off the card with Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see what the other designers came up with and
join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday, September 29th and
we hope to see you in the gallery!
