It’s time for another sketch with My Favorite Things! Like last week, I am taking advantage of the sketch, using it this time for a Mother’s Day card.
I just received my order of new My Mind’s Eye papers. (Afterall, I was running low, you know. Ha!) Their Indie Chic “Citron” collection perfectly fit my need for southwestern colors.
I used Inspired by Flowers 4, Circle STAX 1 & 2 Die-namics (using 1 and 2 provides the perfect edge for matting), and the little tab on the upper right was die-cut using Mini-Tabs Foursome Die-namics.
Since I love this flower so much, I decided to use it again. (I used it here in a similar way.) After stamping and coloring the flower with Copics, I stamped and colored again, cut it out and adhered over the first using foam tape. The end of the cut out flower tucked neatly behind my sentiment.
On the inside, I used a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental about Mothers and a flourish from Finishing Flourishes (stamped using Ranger’s Antique Linen Distress ink, which I also used to sponge around all of the cream panel edges).
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 71.) 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!
