MFT Sketch Challenge #52!


Today there is a great sketch posted in the MFT Forum by the wonderful Frances! It's a square card that features a couple of circles....my favourite kind of sketch!

I pulled out what has to be one of my favourite MFT stamp sets, Winter Blast (which just happens to be on sale right now at the MFT website!!) and got to work! I thought the group stamp of the penguins playing ball would work perfectly for the large circular layer, so I stamped it and did the little bit of colouring using my Copic markers.

The card base is a white square and the patterned papers are all by Heidi Grace. I used Soft Sky to matt the main layer, added some snowflakes with silver brads and some satin ribbon. The final touch was the sparkly finish the I added to the snow and the 'star' using my Spica gel pen.




Well, today is my day off but I will be super busy doing a bunch of laundry and packing for our trip. OH! Didn't I tell you?? We are leaving on Saturday night for a week long much needed family vacation!!! yep! We are heading to Nevada to hang out at the Grand Canyon!! Of course we will be flying into Las Vegas so we will be there for a couple of days but then we are doing some different day trips to National Parks and stuff. It's going to be fun!!! I can't wait!

Great card Kimmie! Love what you've done with those li'l penguins. I have a hard time coming up with ideas for those guys. Love the colours you used, so soft and nice, yet still Christmassy!! (Is that a word?)
