My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 278

Hello all!  I was feeling a little crafty today, so I decided to play along with MFT's latest sketch challenge.  It's an ugly, rainy day today and it surely beats housework!  Am I right?

Here is the sketch:
Here is my take on the sketch...

I started out by blending distress inks on watercolor paper.  Once everything was blended, I sprayed it with water using a Distress Sprayer. I let the water sit for a bit and then it dabbed it with a paper towel.  Once it was dry, I used MFT's Square Grid Cover Up to cut the squares.  I used the grid that it was popped out of for perfect placement of the squares.  I simply laid the grid on my card front. adhered the squares in their proper place, then lifted off the grid.  Easy peasy!  Now, I have the grid to use for a future project.  Win-Win!

To finish off my card, I used the happy die from MFT and cut it out using  lime cardstock.  Then I embossed Wishing You Everything with white embossing powder on black cardstock and cut it out using MFT's Fishtail Flags Layers Stax.  I thought the card still need a little something, so I added the black and white striped Washi tape.  To give it that finishing little touch, sequins, of course!

Thank you for stopping by!

  1. That is such a neat die set to have. Love the combination of distress inks -- very pretty :) The sequins match nicely as well. I feel like I am always tempted to just use the PPP Sparkling Clear sequins and sometimes forget the nice look of matching colored sequins! TFS :)

  2. Great card! I like the look of spritzing water on the blended colors. :)
