mft sketch challenge 616

Happy Sketch Challenge Day, also known as Wednesday, LOL! I love MFT's sketch challenge because it's a fab mid-week creativity boost so let's talk cardmaking! 

Here's this week's sketch...

And here's the card I created...

I love the swoops in the sketch and I thought they would be fun as abstract ice & snow for the penguins from the Chill Holiday set to play on. I've been having so much fun with these critters!

To create the background I used the Ride The Wave die set to make a DIY stencil for ink blending. I just cut one of the waves from a scrap of cardstock and used the negative as a stencil with Distress Oxide ink.

I stamped, cut and colored the penguins to go on top of the waves. Here are the colors I used...

And to curve the sentiment from Cool Christmas Greetings, I placed a piece of acetate over my card in the MISTI. Then I was able to shape the sentiment because the acetate grips the stamp until I can close the MISTI lid and "pick up" the stamp. 

You can learn more about the sketch challenge over on the MFT Stamps blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
