Class Act {MFTWSC17}

It's time for sketch #17 with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club. I hope you've been playing along, but if not, it's never to late to start!

As soon as I saw this sketch I knew exactly which image I wanted to use, You Rule a la mode. She's so slender, she fits perfectly in the narrow panel. She totally reminds me of Emma from Glee, with her puffy shoulder shirt and shoulder length hair.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto choice buttercream and coloured her with copics. The patterned papers are from my Cosmo Cricket UPcycle mini deck and I used one of the patterns to paper piece her skirt.

I used the narrow end of my Spellbinders Labels 8 to cut out the sentiment and added a notebook edge to the polka dot panel with my notebook edge die-namic. For the flower I used my upsy-daisy die-namics with a combination of sage shadow cardstock and patterned paper. I topped it with a gold button and a pink sorbet twine bow.

Here are all the sketch details:

There's a prize each week for one participant, chosen at random. You may use any stamps and supplies that you wish. Each week a keyword is assigned to the sketch, and this week's keyword is MFTWSC17. All you need to do to enter is upload your card to the gallery at Splitcoast and enter the given keyword in the keyword box during the upload process. After the deadline (noon Eastern on Tuesday) we randomly choose a winner from that week's entries and the winner will receive a $15 gift voucher. If the winning card uses MFT stamps, the participant will earn a $5 bonus, for a total of a $20 gift voucher!
