mft sketch challenge 605

Have you seen the latest sketch challenge over on the MFT Stamps blog? I love doing these so I had to sneak in a little extra crafty time yesterday and play along!

Here's the latest sketch...

Here's my take...

Here's a quick run down on how my card came together...

I ink blended a white panel with Distress Oxide Squeezed Lemonade. 

I used the Sand & Surf dies with Sno Cone cardstock to make waves. I finished them with a little ink blending on the top with Distress Oxide Salvaged Patina and some white acrylic paint. Then I adhered the waves on top of the Lemonade panel.

I thought the skateboarding puppies from the Let The Good Times Roll set would make sweet surfers so I stamped, die cut and colored them. Here are the Copic Markers I used...

  • puppy on the red board - C0, C1, C5, C6, C9, E11, E33, R22 & R24
  • puppy on the yellow board - E0000, E000, E11, E33, R11, Y11 & Y13

Then I trimmed off most of the skateboard wheels and used a white pen to "erase" the rest.

Last minute I decided to use the Stay Cool die with the Itty Bitty Summer stamps for my sentiment. To avoid having to space the letters precisely, I used the negative of the die cut and just colored the folded card beneath red with a Copic marker.

Now don't forget that when you join in the sketch challenge (and I hope you do), you might win $50 to the MFT shop! You can find all the info about the challenge HERE on the blog.
