Travel {MFTWSC135}


It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 135. Hop over to the MFT Blog to find out how you can play along to win up to $20 to spend at the MFT Boutique.

I created this fun card using à la modes Girl Talk, and I borrowed an idea from Amy for the palette backgound. Thanks Amy!


I started with a Primitive White card base then I added a layer of Natural. I used the Chalkboard Frame Builder Die-namics to cut out the Kraft strips for the "palette" then I stamped them with the woodgrain from Western Backgrounds. I also inked all around the edges of each piece with Kraft Premium Dye Ink before adhering them together. I love this alternative to a frame! I used the Chat Bubbles Die-namics for the sentiment.

I stamped the girl with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Card then coloured her with copic markers. I wanted to give her iPhone a fun patterned case so I used the Washi Patterns, stamped with Razzle Berry Premium Dye Ink to paper piece the case.

Along the bottom of the card I added a piece of Orange Fizz then stamped Darling Dots with Orange Fizz Premium Dye Ink. A few brads and a strip of lace finished the card nicely.


Get all the sketchy details by visiting the MFT Blog. Have fun!


Here are the supplies I used:

Great card and great coloring. I was on the fence about the Western Backgrounds but this really highlights how they can be used for a lot I hadn't considered. Clever work on the phone case too!
