MFT Sketch Challenge 340

I’m joining in with the MFT challenges again as it’s been ages since I have, for one reason or another. What better way then to dive back in and combine both challenges on one card!

I really love the colour challenge colours and think they are perfect for a masculine card.


I began by using the radiating rays stencil to create the oval part of the sketch in the background, on a piece of white card. I used blueberry ink.

I trimmed down the card panel so it fits on a card base with room for a patterned paper border on the left side to show. I layered the panel with foam tape for dimension.

I have the birthday candle dienamics but not the stamp set. I didn’t want to do a blend of colour so instead I used a stamp from the distressed patterns stamp set to create some stripy colour on white card, before die cutting with the candles. I used blue yonder, cherry crisp, and cement gray inks.


I added the candles to the card with foam tape, along with the flames that I had leftover from another card.

For the sentiment, I die cut a black card tag from the Blueprints 27 set, and heat embossed a white greeting from the Essential Sentiments stamp set. I used foam tape to pop the card up to the same level as the candles.


I’m also entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Red White and Bue Challenge.
