MFT Sketch Challenge: 242

Well, hello!

I had to share the card I created for the latest sketch for MFT's challenge. I recently bought the Polynesian Paradise set, because let's face it, anything Torico makes, I must have! So, I inked up the hula girl, as well as the fun hibiscus flowers. Check it out...

To begin, I took a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock, and die cut a large circle from the center. I then applied a liberal amount of water, and came in with Mermaid Lagoon, and Cracked Pistachio Distress inks, blending and mixing them. I let that dry, and moved on to the rest of the card.

I colored the girl with a variety of Copic Markers, and trimmed her out. I added a bit of black marker around the edge to make her stand out. I then stamped and colored five flowers, and cut them out, again, outlining them as well so they popped. I then layered all of my elements, stamped my sentiment and adhered it all down. I added a few lovely Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Post. Um, they now have a 10mm size! Love!

Here is a look at the sketch:

I know, I moved a few things around, lol! I usually do, but then inspiration is like that! I hope you play along, and thanks so much for stopping by to see me today.
