I am super excited to be participating in MFT's 1st sketch challenge of the year.
Before I show you the sketch and my card, here is a note from MFT:
MFT is super excited to announce that Wednesday Stamp Club will now be centered around a weekly sketch. We know your stamping time is precious, and we want you to maintain as much creative freedom as possible. Sketches are the perfect starting point to a card. Use it as a blueprint, and create a card using the stamp set and supplies that strike your fancy. You can turn to the sketches time and again for creative inspiration.
A new sketch will be posted each Wednesday at midnight on the MFT blog. You'll also find the sketch in the MFT forum on SCS on Wednesday morning, as well as in the weekly newsletter. Our talented Challenge and Design Teams will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.
We encourage you all to play along, and to enter your card in the weekly draw for a $15 gift voucher to the MFT Boutique. Simply follow the sketch and create a card or other paper creation. You may use any stamps and supplies that you wish. Each week, a keyword is assigned to the sketch. All you need to do to enter, is upload your card to the gallery at SCS, and enter the given keyword in the keyword box, during the upload process. After the deadline, we randomly choose a winner from that week's entries and the winner will receive a $15 gift voucher. If the winning card uses MFT stamps, the participant will earn a $5 bonus, for a total of a $20 gift voucher! That is up to $100 per month in prizes, JUST for playing along. We hope you'll join us in 2011.
I'm really looking forward to getting sketchy in 2011, and hope you'll all join me. After all, you'll have a cute card in your hands AND have the chance to win shopping money for MFT. With all the fabulous stamps and dies being released in 2011, you'll definitely need it. ;)
I used the new Because You're Special Pure Innocence stamp set for my card. I just adore this stamp. SWEET! Makes me coo... LOL
Here is a close-up of the sweet Pure Innocence character. I added a pattern to the vase using a Copic marker tip.
For the top, I used the Small Scallop Border Die-namics die, and added some fun pom pom trim.
Here is the sketch for you. I hope you'll play along. :)
Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Blog and the MFT forum on SCS (look for the most recent WSC thread). You'll need to upload your card in the SCS gallery using the keyword shown on the sketch.
Go get sketchy with MFT!
Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon. :)
