My Type of Chick

It’s another sketchy Wednesday with My Favorite Things!

You’re my Type of Chick

The sketch this week *really* pulled me out of my comfort zone.    I had a terrible time tilting that panel.  And I could NOT bring myself to curve the top of the middle panel.  (The sketch is below).  So other than that curved edge, I stuck to the sketch (taking a deep breath to adhere that center piece…crooked.)  :)

I used Four Point Frame Die-namics and Own Your Story stamp set.   The circle was cut using a 1 3/4″ punch.  To add a bit more dimension, I placed two cardboard circles (also cut using the punch) beneath the stamped sentiment.


Along the bottom, I used MFT’s Open Scallop Border Die-namics, die-cutting two pieces, one for the strip and a second for the little pieces within the scallops.

On the inside, I used Typewriter Alphabet to spell the sentiment.   

You can find direct links to DT samples HERE on the MFT blog.  The info is also posted in the MFT Forum in SCS.  (Look for the most recent WSC thread numbered 21.)   And remember, if you upload your card to the SCS gallery using the keyword shown on the sketch, you will have the chance to win up to $20 in MFT money!  One winner is chosen at random each week.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
