Hello there, I am back today taking part in my last MFT Sketch Challenge as a guest designer for June. I have had a lot of fun making my cards this month and I always enjoy the challenge of using a sketch. My card today uses the Tropical Flowers set, along with the Sweet Hello Die-namics.
I started off by stamping the largest of the flowers from the MFT Tropical Flowers Stamp Set on to a panel of white cardstock. I thought that the flower shape resembled the star shape in the sketch. This is a colour/stamp layering set and I really love that you can customise the colours of the different layers and create your own flowers. I stamped the first, larger layer with MFT Grapesicle Ink. I then stamped the next layer with MFT Grape Jelly Ink, followed by the two centre pieces using MFT Lavender Fields Ink.
I masked off the flower and then stamped two leaves from the set. The first layer uses MFT Sour Apple Ink and the second MFT Gumdrop Green Ink. I took the script die from the MFT Sweet Hello Die-namics set and cut this in to the panel, over the flower. I then cut the die a further three times from white cardstock and stacked them up. I took the 'my sweet friend' sentiment from the MFT Well, Hello Stamp Set and stamped this below the hello with MFT Extreme Black Ink.
I adhered the panel flat to an A2 white card base with tape runner. I then added the white stacked hello die cuts inside the opening, as well as all of the inside pieces of the letters using MFT On Point Precision Glue. The top piece of the hello that was cut from the panel was added on top, to complete the flower image.
Here is a look at sketch 443, which is what we are using today:

I have to be honest, when I saw these flowers in the stamp set I wasn't that enamoured with them but as soon as I stamped them out, I fell in love with them! They are so pretty! Oh and I love that Hello die too! :) A big thank you to MFT for having me guest with them this month and thank you for visiting. I hope you have a great rest of the day!
