A Flopsey Birthday!
It is time for another MFT Stamps sketch challenge over on the MFT Stamps member forum of SCS. This week it is my friends Cindy Haffner's turn to host the sketch.
I wanted to play with some new toys I purchased on the weekend at a local papercrafts festival here in Brisbane so out came Flopsey as he was perfect to use for my new toys.
I stamped Flopsey onto white card and then used my copic airbrush system to create the clouds and the grassy area. The clouds were created by punching out a piece of paper using my scallop circle punch. I then started down the bottom and gradually moved the template upwards as I applied my copics to my card. I then applied glue to the branches of the tree and a few places on the grass so I could apply some flower soft (yes this is one of my new toys!).
I used my new Martha Stewart Picket Fence border punch to create the fence and adhered that to the lower portion of my image using foam tape. The pink panels were both embossed using a sizzix texture template. I need more birthday cards so I decided to use a birthday sentiment for this particular card.
Here's this week's sketch! Cindy and I would love you to play along. Don't forget to upload your card to the MFTSC73 gallery on SCS to be in the running to win a $5 gift certificate. We will select the winner next week when we upload the next sketch challenge.
