MFT Sketch Challenge 361

Welcome back to another Monday post! I’ve been back to work for a week and I’m already counting down to my Christmas Vacation. To be honest, I was counting down before I went back lol.

The best way to keep time flying is to keep busy, so let’s take a look at this week’s MFT Sketch Challenge.

Sketch 361 is:

Here is my card:

When I first saw the sketch, I knew I would be using a “Cloud,” border for this card. I though I would use the Magical Dragons stamp set, but as you can see I went in a different direction.

I used the edge die from MFT’s Peek-a-boo Triple Window Edge die set to create the “Cloud,” border. The rainbow portion was cut from a panel I made with alcohol inks (more on that in another post). I will say, it was extremely difficult for me to cut up that panel. Here is a what the whole panel looked like.

I stamped the sentiment from MFT’s Rainbow Greetings with Altenew’s Jet Black ink, and added some Disco Ball Jewels from Lucy’s Cards. I adhered the cloud and rainbow panel to a slightly bigger panel of silver glitter paper, and then a MFT Sno-Cone card base.

Check out the gold shimmer in the alcohol ink background.

I am truly addicted to alcohol inks! I haven’t made any panels since my initial attempt, but I will be soon. They are gorgeous! The colors are so vibrant, and adding the metallic mixatives takes it to the next level. I encourage you to check out alcohol ink artist on Instagram.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope your week goes well!
