You Go Gull – MFTWSC339

Well, it feels like forever since I’ve done this. Let’s see if I can remember how to do it! Thank goodness for my crafty friends. Our monthly get-togethers have kept me crafting at least once a month even though moving and setting up my new craft room has taken months longer that I wanted. But it’s getting closer! One more big piece of furniture to move, but it’s a beast!

I’m playing along with the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge with this card. I may not have a fully assembled craft room, but I couldn’t resist trying out the Distress Oxide inks for the first time when I was creating my cloud background. First impression: So easy to work with! FOr the post the seagull is standing on, I masked the gull and the edges and stamped the post with the Wood Plank background stamp with Hot Fudge hybrid ink then finished cloring it in with Copic markers.

A Little Kindness Goes a Long Way – MFTWSC316

Hey look at this! I actually used stamps and ink tonight! I’m playing along with the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge. I love this Wavy Coloring Book background and I haven’t even colored it yet! I cut a circle mask from scrap paper and covered the panel with it then stamped the background. Then I trmmed the panel, popped with foam adhesive and added the sentiment on the fishtail banner. I finished the card off with some clear sequins.
