MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #261

December 30, 2015

I'm sorry that I've been totally absent from blogging and other social media (FB and IG) for so long. I know it's not only me in the holiday season, but my life has been hectic and I've almost lost my passion for my hobby and the internet world. :( I hope it will come back soon after New Year's celebration.
Anyway, I've popped in to share a card I made for this weeks MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge (WSC261).

I started my card with a Lemon Chiffon card base. The background panel was die cut with a scalloped rectangle die from Blueprints 20 Die-namics and stamped with Tiny Stars Background and Lemon Chiffon Pigment ink. The square panel was die cut with Cross-Stitch Square STAX Die-namics and stamped with Watercolor Stripes Background and Lemon Chiffon Pigment ink. I added a little banner cut with Creative Clips Die-namics and Hip Clips Die-namics to the panel. The Tickled Pink panel was stamped with Tiny Stars Background and Bubblegum Dye ink, and I added a couple of stitch lines using Basic Stitch Lines Die-namics.

The elephant and balloon are from Adorable Elephants stamp set and they were colored with Copics and cut with the matching dies. I covered the balloon with some Glossy Accents. The sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Brown Dye ink. I added several sequins to finish off the card.

Head over to the MFT Challenge and Inspiration blog for more info about the challenge and for more inspiration from the Challenge team.

I'd like to wrap up my blogging for the year 2015 with this post. Thank you so much for visiting and leaving lovely comments here this year. And I truly appreciate your warm support to Birdie Brown stamps. Sometimes designing a stamp set is a hard work. But your warm words always encourage me and I feel sooooo happy when I see my stamps are used all over the world, because I believe that it means my illustration have made someone happy. :):)
