Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 417

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 417. 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.

Marieke has shared some amazing inspiration this month. She is back today with one last December Sketch Challenge. Thanks so much for joining us, Marieke!

Marieke created a multi-colored background with a simple frame to mimic the sketch. Her colored birds and mushrooms complement her color palette perfectly with a stamped sentiment banner completing her adorable design.

Joy used the sketch as inspiration for her underwater scene. She kept each of the window openings the same with a soft blue ink blended background, mimicking the look of ocean water. Colorful fish and greenery complete the look with a stamped sentiment for the greeting.

Keeway used the sketch layout to design a grid of adorable kittens in various poses. The added black & white polka dot background adds great contrast and really keeps the focus in her stamped images.
