mft sketch challenge 619

Raise your hand if your week could use a little more crafty time? Me too! Please allow me to recommend joining in the MFT Weekly sketch because that's what I'm doing and I know it works to brighten my day!

Here's this week's sketch...

And here's the card I made...

I started by lightly stamping the tree from Mod & Merry in Distress Oxide Cracked Pistachio. I used the image as a guide to mask off the tree shape so I could ink blend in Cracked Pistachio and make a background for the stamp.

I removed the tape and let it dry before stamping the tree again with Salvaged Patina ink. 

I added a few stamped stars (also from the Mod & Merry set) and a little faux splatter with a pen.

Then I created the sentiment with "Happy Holidays" from the Mod & Merry set and "fa la la" using the Modern Serif Alphabet. To get the right colored cardstock for each letter, I swiped my Distress Oxide pads on white cardstock and let dry before die cutting.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!
