Feeling Green {MFTWSC15}

We're already into the fifteenth fabulous week of MFT Wednesday Stamp Club sketches!!! This one, MFTWSC15, is wide open for all kinds of interpretations and I'm excited to see what you come up with!

I decided to go with Something's Fishy a la mode and imagine that she's fishing in a stream. The entire image is paper pieced. Here's what I did...first I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo black onto choice snow white and coloured it with copics. Then I stamped it again onto the patterned pieces from my Basic Grey Marjolaine pad for her shirt, boots, and the fish. I stamped it a third time onto the lightest blue paper from the pack and ran that piece through an embossing folder. Then I cut out the coloured image, omitting all the fishing line, and glued it into place on the background piece. Because I stamped it on the base layer, the image lines up with the fishing line...sweet!

Next I used my catch a wave and flat-bottom cloud die-namics to add some fun elements. I shortened up the sentiment (which originally reads "Feeling a little green around the gills?") to fit along the bottom of the image and anchored it with a button and some honeydew twine.

I love the sentiments in this set and I wanted to add another one to the inside so I used my sweet stack die-namics to jazz it up a little.

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 MFTWSC15. 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!
Be sure to head over to Kim's Blog to view the entire list of design team participants...there's plenty of inspiration for you with today’s sketch!

Thanks for stopping by!
