MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #278

Hello and welcome to the MFT Wednesday Sketch challenge. This weeks sketch includes a fun grouping of strips in the center with an area for a sentiment. I love sketches like this that work so well for clean and simple designs.

For my card I cut out three strips from white cardstock using one of the Stitched Fishtail Flag STAX dies. I then adhered them all side by side with temporary adhesive so I could cut off the ends with a Stitched Rectangle STAX die to make them all evenly sized rectangles. 

Once I had the ends trimmed off, I removed the temporary adhesive from the strips, took them apart and added distress inks to each of them using an ink blending tool. Once I had them all inked, I added water droplets over top to make them look distressed.

I adhered all of the strips to a white cardstock panel and then I added a Stitched Fishtail Flag cut from vellum for the sentiment to go on. I diecut the word friend from silver sparkle cardstock and black cardstock and adhered them together creating the look of a shadow behind the word.

I stamped the hello word using black ink, trimmed it out with my scissors and adhered it above the word friend to complete the sentiment. I finished the card by adding some clear sequins and then I adhered the panel to a top-folding Grout Gray card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by for this weeks sketch challenge. Make sure to head over the MFT challenge blog to submit a card using this weeks sketch and to see more samples from the creative team! ;)
