MFT WEDNESDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE 417



My card inspired by the sketch:


Today, my card features the adorable Friends in the Forest stamp. The stamped images were Copic colored and cut out with the coordinating dies.


The solid trees were stamped with Distress Oxides and I used the same inks to blend the front panel.


I used the Gift Box- Cover Up Dienamics to die-cut the frame to match the sketch.


To finish, I foam mounted the frame to the front panel and added the images as shown.

MFT AND FRIENDS - DECEMBER RELEASE

Hi there! The amazing MFT December release is now available for purchase HERE!


For my MFT and Friends project, I made a fun interactive sliding card that features the adorable Forever and Owlways set and the Leaping Slider Channels Die-namics.


To begin, I Copic colored the stamped images from the Forever and Owlways stamp set and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I used a thin white gel pen to add fur-like textures to the owls.


The front cloud panel was ink blended using the Cloud Stencil with Distress Oxides.


The grass panels were die-cut using the Grassy Hills Die-namics and ink blended with Distress Oxides as well. Once dried, I heat embossed the sentiment in white on the front glass panel.


To make this into an interactive slider card, I die-cut the front panel with one of the slider dies from the Leaping Slider Channels Die-namics. For a great video tutorial on how to use the slider die and make a similar card, you can watch  Karolyn's Youtube video for MFT HERE

Here's a quick video on the interactive fun:
