MFT Sketch Challenge
My friend Maureen and I had a great time at the West Springfield Stamping show Saturday. I now have a new favorite paper - Webster Pages. I saw some samples of this paper line with the MFT pure innocence and fell in love. It gives these girls a whole new image. I love it. I had borrowed this set from my friend Kimberly but when I saw this at the Bella Art booth I decided it was time this Pure Innocence Girl came to my house for good. I also acquired a few Impression Obsession Christmas stamps, several new stickle colors and some paper. I was pretty good and managed to not pull out the charge card once, but only have coins in my wallet right now. I spent every last dollar I brought with me.
This card is for the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge. I decided to make my squares out of vellum. I was also inspired to stamp french script writing on the vellum with Tim Holz Antique Linen ink. It's very subtle but I like it alot. I usually don't like to work with vellum because I find it hard to apply to my card since most strong adhesives show through on vellum. But now that I am becoming more proficient in stitching, I decided to stitch the vellum on the card. I carefully lined them up, used a few post it notes to hold it in place and then stitched a zigzag stitch around the outer edge of the 4 vellum squares. Below is the inspiration sketch.
My sister is soon to celebrate a milestone birthday. She is also an avid gardener. This card may be the one I use for that occasion so the inside will have a nice birthday sentiment.
I hope you have a nice Monday. Leave me a comment if you can!
