Happy Sunday! It is time for a Stamptacular Sunday Challenge! This week we have a fun sketch. Our sponsor is MFT Stamps, too! Check out the link and find out how to play. There is a MFT gift certificate up for grabs! How cool is that?
I finally got my first Pure Innocence set! WooHoo! I decided on the Out on a Limb set because it not only had this adorable PI girly but also a tree and lots of sentiments! I have two cards. One for the sketch and one just because I wanted to play.
For my top card I am using the MFT PI Out on a Limb set and showcasing the PI girly. I hardly have any people images. I thought it was fun learning to color. I tried to comply with the colors from CR84FN19 to use grays, blues, and aquas. I paper pieced her a dress in a coordinating print, but the color of the paper make her look a bit homey. LOL! I decided with these muted hues that she need a pop of color. The color challenge mentions that the dominant colors need to be in these hues so I hope I am still safe with a splash of coral.
This card is one I made for the WSCMFT10 weekly MFT sketch challenge at the SCS MFT forum. This card showcases the little tree and birdie that comes in the same PI set. I also tried experimenting around with my dienamics dizzy border die. I really love the delicate look this die has when it is just cut out. However, the more I looked at it the more I thought it would look even more delicate as a medallion. I had to play around with how this would best work. I am thinking if I had the MFT rosette die cut that it would have been easier. I do not have that border die so I used my score pal instead.
How I did it: Dizzy Rosette is what I call it! I cut a strip of paper that was about 6 inches long and 1.5 wide. I scored at half inch marks down long side. I then placed my dizzy border die namics across top and cut out. I removed all excess scraps and used the prescored marks to fold my very delicate border. I did this twice and placed on a 3/4" circle punch with glue. I then mounted another circle for the top and pressed lightly. I finished with a button that would cover the area, a flower punch, sentiment strip, and gold pearl. I love how it looks and must try this again in different colors. I just love the dainty finish. Thought I would share!
I am playing in a few other blog challenges.
