Above the Fog {MFTWSC18}

It's time for another super fun sketch for the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club. Here it is...sketch #18.

I used the brand new Up, Up and Away set and paired it with some patterned papers from my Lilly Bee Designs Happily Lost pad (I thought the name was appropriate for the stamps I chose!).

I love the stippled look of these images and they make for quick cards with no colouring needed. The clouds coordinate with the flat bottom cloud die-namics...sweet! For the cloud, first I cut it out from patterned paper with the die, next I stamped it with versamark then embossed it with vanilla powder. The balloon was stamped with Rose Bud Memento ink.

The decorative doily die-namic cut a perfect cream backdrop for the balloon and I tucked a pomegranate strip cut with my scallop ribbon die-namic under the main panel. I just LOVE this new scallop ribbon die-namic...it's SO versatile!!

On the inside I created a little scene that plays on the sentiment "Above the fog, the sun shines". The 'clouds' were cut with my simply scallops medium die-namic and my sunshine die-namic was a given for the sun.  :-)

Here are all the sketchy 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 MFTWSC18. 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!
