Rain or Shine {MFTWSC112}

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 112.

I decided to flip the sketch completely upside down because I wanted to use the Umbrella Sentiments stamp set and gorgeous Umbrella Die-namics.

I started with a card base of Whip Cream and added a layer of yellow then Kraft. I embossed the Kraft layer with my swiss dots embossing folder then stitched on a blue patterned paper panel. I chose pretty patterns from the My Mind's Eye Unforgettable collection.

For the sentiment panel I started with a rectangle of Whip Cream and layered it onto Steel Grey. I stamped the sentiment using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

I cut out the unbrella base and handle from Kraft cardstock and the 'fabric' panels from floral paper. I adhered the floral panels with foam tape for dimension.

On the inside I added another sentiment from the Umbrella Sentiments stamp set and a few strips of patterned paper.

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 MFTWSC112. 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 the MFT Blog to view the entire list of design team participants...there's plenty of inspiration for you with today’s sketch!
