Angels {MFTWSC104}

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 104.

I bet it's no surprise to you that I flipped the sketch...I seem to do that a lot! LOL!

I used Pure Innocence Angel for today's card and a soft palette of colours from the Glitz Hello Friend paper pad. I started with a card base of Whip Cream then added a layer of Kraft and Pink Lemonade. I embossed the pink layer with my swiss dots embossing folder. Then I moved on to the focal point of the sketch.

I stamped Pure Innocence Angel with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloured her with copic markers. I paper pieced her gown and added glitter to her wings and halo. I used the Rectangle 1 STAX Die-namics to cut out the Kraft layer and embossed it with my modern wallpaper embossing folder. She's mounted on foam tape for a little dimension.

For the little tab I used the Mix & Match Banners Die-namics to cut out a piece of Whip Cream, then I trimmed it down to size. The word "Angels" is part of a longer sentiment but I only wanted that word so I carefully inked it with my tuxedo black dew drop (the pointed end makes it easier to get into tight places, like the edges of a word without catching the letters beside it). I used the Hearts-a-Plenty Die-namics to cut out one of the patterned papers from the Glitz collection, then added a Whip Cream button tied with Hemp Cord.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from All Occasion Sentiments. I love that the font coordinates with the fonts in all the Pure Innocence sets.

This card is dedicated to Sandy Hook Elementary School and the families of Newtown, Connecticut.

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 MFTWSC104. 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!
