Five Wednesdays in April, and here we are on the brink of May. We hope you're having a wonderful 2015 and that you're enjoying the inspiration you find here at the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog!
Below you'll find Sketch 226. Create cards, scrapbook layouts, home decor, treat containers, mixed media, etc. using this week's sketch and be sure to link your project below for a chance at the weekly My Favorite Things Gift Voucher worth up to $20.
In May we'll have a new guest designer all the way from South America. We're excited to see what she brings to the table!
Heather turned the tag of the sketch into a panel and offset the line to the left. Do you see how she slightly notched the card stock panel at the top and bottom? That's a great trick for helping string stay in place and not slip. And isn't this a super delicious color combination?
The Challenge Team had fun with the sketch this week (don't they ALWAYS?). Let's see what creative things they have up their sleeves.
Erin Lee played around with color and makes her tag SHINE with a sentiment from the I Love You More stamp set. She cleverly use the Gerbera Daisy Die-namics here to emulate sunshine. LOVE that.
Jill's card is positively fun with a cool tag she's dressed up with the Proof Positive Cover-Up Die-namics. Playing with dies is always a plus, don't you agree?
Make the tag of the sketch your focal point with heart. I SUPER love how Miriam stamped the sentiment on the die cut heart and then popped it up with foam tape to matched the stamped sentiment on the tag itself. I'm going to have to try that!
Vera added a second tag to her card for an added bit of oomph. Those tags became a fun place to experiment with ink and inlaid die cutting. And the enamel dots are the perfect finishing touch!
