Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 405

Welcome to another weekly Sketch Challenge!
Turn each inspiring sketch into a mini work of art to add to your stash — you could also add $50 worth of brand new MFT to your collection! Now that is a win-win.

Below you'll find Sketch 405. 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.

MFT products are encouraged, but not required. We just want to see what this week’s sketch inspires you to create! You can enter your cards for this week's challenge in the Inlinkz Link Up at the bottom of this post.

We're welcoming a brand new guest designer to the Challenge & Inspiration blog. Join us in extending a warm hello to Erica Andersson-Burke!

Erica kept her card design very similar to the sketch and created a colorful stamped background to peek out from behind her main panel. The embossed detail behind her sentiment strip and focal image adds subtle detail and dimension while keeping the focus on her adorable stamped kitten.

Keeway flipped the sketch upside down and created a fun polka dot, peek-a-boo background. The ombre inking behind her main panel adds a playful look to her design that coordinates nicely with her cute Halloween image.

Donna decided to flip the sketch upside down as well and created a stunning rainbow backdrop with alcohol inks to complement her magical unicorn. The black and white sentiment strip adds contrast while the clear sequins add some detail and dimension.
