It’s sketch challenge day again at MFT Stamps and this week I have another design with the Eiffel Tower on it! This time it’s subtle but it’s there and to be honest, I totally did this by accident! I started this design with absolutely no idea where I was going with it and this is what I came up with. Along with the sketch challenge, I’ve also challenged myself to create a white on white design. I love doing this and they always look so lovely in person. I have to apologize for the pictures. The lighting yesterday was not the best and try as I might…the images turned out not doing the card justice. I hope you’ll use your imagination a little here!
If you love to create from sketches, be sure to check out this week’s MFT Stamps sketch, #MFTWSC339. Today’s sketch is a very symmetrical design that features a square format. I’ve kept it fairly close to the original and had fun with a simple design. I hope you’ll join in the challenge for some creative time! You can find all the details here on the MFT Challenge Blog. If you’ve never played along, it’s super fun and easy. I hope you’ll join us!
To create the main frame elements of the design I’ve used the Stitched Square Scallop Edge Frames Die-namics on the outer layer and the Single Stitch Line Square Frames Die-namics to create the inner frame. Frames on the inside of the card design are a really great way to break up space while not taking away from the design.
To create the background I’ve stamped the Floral Fantasy Background in Grout Gray Dye Ink and then added in a very subtle hint at Paris with a vellum die-cut using the Paris Skyline Die-namics.
Quick Tip: Leave a space in the foam strip adhesive that pops up the inner frame. This allows the tower to go up right through that area.
You can find all the supplies used listed and linked below for your convenience. I hope you find some time to get sketchy! There’s always a chance to win something fab!
Until next time…
