MFT Card Sketch 151
Today I completed a card that I made following MFT Card sketch 151 which looks like this
Every week I have good intentions on completing the card sketch & just somehow run out of time before the next one is out lol So this time, I got onto it right away!!
So this is what my card looks like
I used the gorgeous little PI stamp Butterfly Kisses from MFT that I stamped onto a circle cut from the Pierced Circle STAX. I paper pieced her outfit with some patterned paper & the wings with a very shiny piece of wrapping paper I had. I was going to colour her with copics, but I thought that she looked better as she is with the white background, it just gives it a nice effect without too much other colour added. I did colour in the small flower in her hair with a hot pink, to make it stand out more.
The background was die cut using an MFT die called Flying Butterflies which are just so cute!! I inked around the edges with VersaColor Orchid, then used a clear embossing powder that had a crystal glitter in it. You may not be able to tell from the photo, but the edges are very sparkly & shiny. I also did the same on the edges of the butterfly, which was cut from an MFT die set called Butterflies, a 3 piece die set. The Butterfly Wishes is a stamp from the Winged Beauties set, which is embossed with a glitter embossing powder also.
I popped the image circle up with foam dots & glued the butterfly onto the edge & raised the wings a little to make it look like it is flying, here is a close up
I hope you like my card & I am hoping to start following along with more MFT card sketches. As you can see, I LOVE MFT & have lots & lots of their stamps & dies to play with :)
