MFT Sketch Challenge #395 - Because

Hello Lovely.  I hope you're finding inspiration in the challenge posts I've been creating.  They're helping get me out of some of my crafting ruts.  Today I have a card for the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge.  As promised I used pattern paper in this design.


This is Sketch Challenge #395.  MFT products are encouraged, but not required. I chose to use some MFT products because I have a few in my stash.


I started with the MFT Because You stamp & die set, VersaFine Onyx Black ink, Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles dies, and a pad of Simple Stories Vintage Bliss pattern paper.


I pulled some solid paper from my scrap stash and grabbed a pale grey card base.  I trimmed a piece of pattern paper to 4 x 5 1/4-inches.  I cut a circle with the largest of the stitched circle dies from pale grey paper that matched the card base.  Then I added texture to it with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I used a bit of Fossilised Amber Distress Ink to ink the edges of my yellow banner I hand cut from goldenrod paper.  I stated with peach, as you see in the upper right of the photo, but elected for the yellow as it popped.


I layered the yellow banner and pale grey "because" together.  I stamped "I love you" close to the tail end of the pale grey banner with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and then trimmed the end off to fit the space I had on the banner.  To add a bit of embellishment I inked a white paper flower with the Fossilised Amber Distress Ink and add a creamy yellow brad to the center.  I added the banner to my card with foam tape and attached it at an angle to match the sketch, then adhered the flower with Multi Medium Matte.


This sketch was a little challenging for me, but I succeeded.  Thanks for swinging by today.  I hope this card inspires you to use your pattern paper and try out some of the many sketch challenges out there.
