Cheer Up, Friend

It’s sketch time with My Favorite Things!

This week I looked through my older à la modes sets for inspiration.  I wanted something that would fit well into the circle of this week’s sketch and decided the umbrella from The Rainbow Will Come would work perfectly.

After piecing the umbrella, I added shadow using cool gray Copics.

Base cardstock is MFT’s Red Hot with my image stamped and colored on X-Press It Blending Card.

The sentiments I used are from WTG Puddle Jumper.  (Perfect for mixing with this à la modes.)

On the inside, I used more sentiments from Puddle Jumper (and added more rain.)  :)


<—Here’s the sketch if you’d like to play along. You can find direct links to more samples HERE.  And remember, if you upload your card to the SCS gallery using the keyword MFTWSC88, you will have the chance to win up to $20 in MFT money!  One winner is chosen at random each week.  More info can be found in the MFT Forum in SCS.

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great day!  :)
