Knit Happens

Hi everyone.  I’m back today with a sketch sample for this week’s Wednesday Stamp Club with My Favorite Things.

This week I’ve used Knit Happens à la modes.  I’m especially interested in all things “knitty” lately as I recently finished my very first scarf!  Just in time for the winter we never had…  :)

I pieced the girl’s top and colored the rest with markers.  I didn’t have quite the right shades of blue-green for her hat and leggings so after coloring with the closest match, I colored over with a warm gray marker.  The larger wooden button atop the biggest Pretty Posies Die-namics flower was also altered with a Copic.  The button was a lighter tan, but after coloring with the marker, it’s a better match… and the wood grain still shows through.

The sentiment was stamped onto one of the tabs from Mini Tabs Foursome Die-namics.

I added a sentiment to the inside as well as a bit of flourish from Finishing Flourishes.  Along the bottom (on the front as well) I placed a Little Open Scallop Strip.

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 60.)   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 for visiting!  Have a great day!  :)
