MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #334

Here's this week's MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #334.

And here's my take on it.

I cut a sheet of striped patterned paper with the rectangle element from BP24,
then cut the curved edge and adhered it to a Natural card base. A small square
frame was cut and clouds were stenciled in the center of the frame.

Two seagulls were colored with Copics and die cut with the matching Die-namics.
All the pieces were adhered to the card per the sketch. I curved the sentiment
and white embossed it on the card, and finished off the card with enamel dots.

MFT May Creative Construction with Blueprints--Flowers & Foliage

Flowers and leaves add elegance and an organic feel to your projects. Whether
you build a bouquet of blooms or feature a single blossom, your recipient will be
touched by your efforts. Some of our Blueprints feature floral accents and this month,
 the Creative Team has crafted a bevy of looks to inspire your next project.

For my project, I chose to work with Blueprints 14.

Instead of the five petal flower die in the set, I opted to use the middle of the flower
which reminds me of baby mums. Several "mums" and leaves were cut from watercolor
card stock and ink distressed with Distress inks.

I created a square card, using the rounded corner element which was cut from
patterned paper. I ink distressed around the edges for more definition. I loosely followed
a Blueprints sketch found here and finished off the card with the hybrid sentiment.

Visit today's post at My Favorite Things for more inspiration from participating
team members and see how they took on the challenge. Thanks for stopping by!

CAS(E) this Sketch #222

Meet this week's CAS(E) this Sketch brought to you by Hannelie.

And here's my take on it.

Yes, butterflies yet again. This time I ink distressed them with Distress Oxide
inks and adhered them to a card base. I added a strip of patterned paper, white
embossed the sentiment on a banner strip, and finished off with enamel dots.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of the design team interpreted
the sketch and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday,
May 25th and we hope to see you in the gallery!
