MFT Guest Designer : Sketch Challenge #435

Hi Friends!  I am over the moon excited to be the Guest Designer for May 2019 for the Weekly Sketch Challenge for My Favorite Things!  Every Wednesday during the month of May, I will be sharing with you my take of each sketch.

For this week's new sketch #435, I really wanted to focus on the three circle element on the card.  That is where my eye drew me in!  So - I pulled out one of my favorite MFT sets Bitty Bears, and decided to create what could be a celebratory card of any kind!




I stamped out my images onto white card stock and colored them in with my Copic Markers.  Then, I used the Bitty Bears Die-Namics to cut them out.  For what I will call the "split layer" portion of the sketch, I used my favorite Blueprints 27 Die-namics and die cut a piece of Black Licorice card stock, and then I used the longest banner die for the blueprints die-namics set, and used it as a guide to die cut the upper center portion of my black layer.  It took the guesswork out of measuring, and created the perfect sized gap for this particular layer.  All I need to do was start adhering to my white card base. Before adhering though, I white heat embossed the "It's Time To Party" sentiment from the same Bitty Bears stamp set.  

I adhered my black layer, and then I added some foam tape to the back of my bears to give them some dimension, and help pop them up on the card.  For a final touch, I added a bit of white gel pen detail to the bears cheeks, the cupcake, balloon and present, followed by a bit of black glaze pen to darken up the bears eyes :)



Super simple design, but so so fun and happy!!  I look forward to bringing you a new post every Wednesday this month!  Thank you to the MFT team for inviting me to Guest Design!
