MFT Sketch Challenge | Thanks A Ton

Hello there, it's time for another MFT Sketch Challenge. Today we are on sketch 442 and although I do feel that I have all of the elements of the sketch, I did move them around slightly. Hopefully you can still see the sketch in my card, though.

I started off by creating my background piece. I took a panel of Yupo paper and added a layer of Alcohol Ink Blending Solution on to it. I then applied Aqua, Pool and Patina Alcohol Inks and moved the ink around with an air spritzer tool. Once the piece was dry, I cut it down first using the largest of the MFT Stitched Rectangle Stax 1 Die-namics. I then cut it the top down further using the MFT Stitched Dome Stax Die-namics and just partially cut the dome top piece.
I took the MFT Under The Sea Die-namics and cut the elements from white cardstock. I coloured them using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are below the supplies area) and then die cut the sand piece with the bottom of the A2 Stitched Rectangle Stax to match up the stitching lines. These were adhered to the background piece with tape runner and MFT On-Point Precision Glue. I took the whale from the MFT BB Friends With Fins Stamp Set and stamped this on to white cardstock with MFT Extreme Black Ink.
I coloured the whale with Copic Markers and then cut out using the MFT BB Friends With Fins Die-namics. I also took the sentiment from the set and stamped this on to MFT Black Licorice Cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. This was cut out and the edge cut with the same rectangle die to get the stitching. It was added to the background piece using thin foam squares. I then added the whale on top with foam squares. The entire background panel was then added to an acetate card base with tape runner.

Here is a look at sketch 442:

COPIC MARKERS: Whale - B39, B99, B97, B95, B93, B91, W5, W3, W1, W0. Sand/sea bed & rocks - E49, E44, E43, E42, E41, E40. Seaweed - YG17, YG23, YG01.
I did add additional panels of cardstock cut to the same shape as the background piece to cover the inside back of the card, the inside piece to write on and the back. This covers up any adhesive. I have to be honest, my camera is not a fan of acetate and put that together with alcohol ink and this card was rather tricky to photograph! Sorry about that but I had a lot of fun making this card! Thanks so much for visiting me today, I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a great rest of the day!

  4. Great card! You made the scene come to life.

  5. I love it on the acetate as it gives the idea that it's really floating. The whole scene is beautifully put together xxx
