You're Smokin' {MFTWSC59}

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 59.

I reached for one of the newest Pure Innocence sets that I didn't get a chance to ink up during the February release, Pure Innocence Firefighter Girl.

This layout through me for a bit of a loop because I wasn't crazy about all the open space on the right side of the card, so I took a little creative liberty and added and orange piece which I cut out with the mix & match banners Die-namics. Then I added a couple of black brads to tie in the black base layer. The sentiment was stamped on a cream piece that I cut out using the narrow banner from the first place award ribbon Die-namics.

I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black and gave her a fun blue and orange uniform thanks to my copic markers. She needed just a little bling though so I added a clear rhinestone to her hat then coloured it with my B95 marker. I popped the image on foam tape for a bit of dimension. The patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye On The Bright Side-One 6x6 pad.

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 MFTWSC59. 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!
