A Shady Tree!

Hi everyone.

Thursday is sketch challenge day over at the MFT Stamps Member Forum of SCS. This week it is my time to host the challenge.

I just love this new "Tea With Flopsey" set that was released by MFT Stamps last week. I stamped Flopsey onto my white card and then masked my image. I then used my Copic Air Brush System to create my sky and grass. I tried something different this week for my sky ... so far I had only sprayed the sky all over but I decided to use a cloud stencil this time for a different look. I have used cloud stencils a lot previous for straight sponging but this is the first time I have used it when airbrushing.

I used floral fantasy & leafy branches to add texture to the pink & blue panels of my card.

I cut my sentiment apart so I could use just the first line on the front of my card and then easily stamp the second line onto the inside of my 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 MFTSC72 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.
