MFT – Getting Sketchy, Week 7

**Please press Ctrl-F5 to “hard” refresh if you’d like to make sure you are seeing my latest post.  (Blog issues.)  Thanks!**

Hi everyone.  It’s time for the Wednesday Stamp Club with My Favorite Things.  We’re now on Week 7 of sketches! 

Thinking of You

This week I finally inked Ice Skating Flopsey.  (I love the swirly sentiment.)

I paper-pieced his scarf, coat and pants, coloring the rest with markers.  After Flopsey was dressed and colored, I cut him out and adhered him over the ribbons using foam boosters.

After stamping the sentiment, I clear embossed to help it stand out against the patterned paper.

Along the bottom of my card front (and on the inside), I used MFT’s Small Scallop Border Die-namics — two strips on the front and one on the inside.

On the inside, I stamped Flopsey a second time, drew in a little swish beneath his skate and used a sentiment from Snow Adorable (Pure Innocence).

Here’s the sketch:

You can find direct links to more DT samples HERE on the MFT Blog.  The info is also posted in the MFT forum on SCS.  (Look for the most recent WSC thread numbered 7).  And remember, if you upload your card in the SCS gallery using the keyword shown on the sketch, you will have the chance to win up to $20 in MFT money!  One winner is chosen at random each week.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
