MFT Sketch Time

I missed a week (or two) of the MFT Sketch Challenges but I loved this week's sketch and just got these stamps so I squeezed in some time to play!

Here's the sketch:


And here's my card:



I wanted to try some colored pencils on kraft cardstock and they worked out ok but I'm not crazy about the pencil "lines" being seen so much (really noticeable on the bear). But it was a nice departure from markers for a change. And these forest animals are so cute, who cares how they're colored! Thanks for looking!

 And here's my card, using You Make My Tail Wag:


Inside says: Some Days You're the Dog, Some Days You're the Hydrant. Umm, yep.

See you again soon!

Camp Create - Spectacular Shakers

Back again with another card for MFT's Camp Create 2017. There's 5 challenges total (plus a bonus) and so far I've only finished 2 and the deadline is tomorrow! But that's ok - I enjoyed the little bit of time I had to play.

Here's my Spectacular Shaker card:



I used the Beast Friends and Oh Christmas Trees stamp sets and a couple of MFT dies to create my shaker card. As you can see, the Christmas tree is stamped in the window, behind acetate, which holds the shaker elements. I colored and watercolored the tree and added the "plaid" to the Yeti's scarf using Copic markers. The sentiment was also added to the front of the card behind the acetate panel. This was a fun one to make and I earned this camp badge:


Will I get any more camp challenges finished in time? We'll see! Thanks for stopping by!

Camp Create - Glitzy Glitter!


I'm running behind with participating in the Camp Create 2017 over at the MFT blog but I'm hoping to get a couple of entries posted before time is up!

So my card for today is for the Glitzy Glitter challenge. I don't have a lot of MFT dies yet but I had these Heart Balloons dies that are no longer available (sorry!) and these adorable Magical Dragons (which are available and you should definitely buy because they are so darn cute!) so I paired these up with some Basic Grey paper and came up with this card:


I used colors for my dragon that matched the colors in the paper and then used the clear (0) Copic pen to add some texture to the dragon's skin (and to lighten the color up a bit). Of course, the balloon is my glittery element which was fun to make but I'll be cleaning up glitter for three weeks. You know how that is, right?

Here's my badge for completing this challenge. Hopefully I'll have more to show you in the next two days!

Have a great day!
