MFT Sketch Challenge 325: GO GET 'EM, TIGER

Hello, everyone! It's Wednesday so I'm back with another card for the MFT Sketch Challenge. This week offers another fun sketch that will give you a myriad of possibilities. I decided to make a shaker card using the brand new, super cute Lions and Tigers stamp set.


To create my front panel, I trimmed mustard cardstock to 4.5 X 5.75. I applied distress inks in Gather Twig and Walnut Stain. Then, I inked the Whimsical Woodgrain Background rubber stamp using Versafine Vintage Sepia and stamped the cardstock. I added clear embossing powder over the ink and heat set it. This gave it a nice texture to the front. Next, I took the largest Stitched Rounded Square Frames and die cut the front panel to create my shaker window and added acetate behind it.
I stamped the sentiment in the front of the acetate window using Versamark ink and heat set it with black embossing powder (I used Heat Resistant Acetate). After, I added two layers of foam adhesive behind it.

To create my back panel, I trimmed white cardstock to the same size as the front and applied Distress Inks in Twisted Citron and Mustard Seed. I added some splatters of water afterwards. I adhered the front panel to the back, making sure to pour in enough of the sparkly Lucky Sequin Mix from Pretty Pink Posh.
I colored the adorable family of tigers using Zig clean color real brushes along with Prismacolor pencils. I applied ink to the Leafy Greenery with the blending tool using distress inks in Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, and Mowed Lawn. Lastly, I adhered all the colored images to the front along with a die cut sentiment banner from Blueprints 27. I hope you like my interpretation of the new sketch and have inspired you to play along this week ;) 

Thank you stopping by. Have a great day!
Hugs, Amy
