Today I am here with a card for this week's MFT Sketch Challenge. I missed out on entering the last card into the challenge by a couple of hours, so I thought I'd try to make it this week. :P The sketch for the week is:
When I saw this sketch and rummaged through my MFT stamps I saw three stamp sets I could combine to create a double scene. I had so much fun working on this card. All the stamp sets I used were from the Birdie Brown line (love!). The sets I used were Magical Unicorn, Magical Dragon, and Our Story. I thought the top section as setting a scene where we catch a glimpse into the little girl's mind envisioning herself as the character in the book she is reading, which of course is loving the pretty unicorn and her as a princess. The bottom part is of course her reading and engulfed in this books dreaming it could come true.
I started by using MFT's Stitch Scallop Basic Edge to die cut the top panel from heavy weight white and mint green cardstock. I then used MFT's Grassy Hill to die cut the mint green cardstock to create a grassy boarder. I used my MIST to ink up the images I wanted to use and stamped in on to heavy weight white cardstock with Simon Says Intense Black ink. I used my MISTI because I knew I would need to stamp it a few times to get dark lines. I also stamped the image of the little girl reading a book on some pattern paper as I wanted to paper piece the chair. I Copic colored my images and fussy cut them as well as the chair that I stamped on pattern paper. I then lined the pattern paper chair with black marker so the white spaces would not show. I moved on to the distressing I would be doing for my panels. I used Mowed Lawn distress ink to give a deeper color to the grassy hill boarder and also give some contrast. I used the puffly cloud stencil to create a light cloudy scene at the top of my white Scallop Basic Stitched panel. I then taped off the bottom of my main panel piece and used Hickory Smoke distress ink to create a ground for the little girl sitting on the chair. I used Hero Arts Stylish Boarder stencil with Abandon Coral Distress ink to create a wall paper look. I then stamped a sentiment from the Magical Unicorn stamp set on black cardstock and used Simon Says Stamp Silver embossing powder. I popped the Scallop Basic Stitched panel up on the card to create almost like a thought bubble as well as the sentiment. I finished off the card by using Spectrum Niors Shimmer pen on the Unicorn's main, horn, and the Princess's crown. I used glossy accents for the horn and crown. I hope you like what I created. :)
