Handmade Cards, Sketch Challenge

MFT Sketch Challenge 342

I’m joining in with the MFT Sketch challenge with this fun hippo card.


I began by applying MFT ink to a white card base, then adding a piece of patterned paper to the bottom edge, cut with a scalloped edge border die.

For the top part of the card, I die cut a speech bubble and stamped a sentiment from the Handwritten Happiness stamp set on to it. I added this to the card base with foam tape.

I stamped some images from the Happy Hippos stamp set, then coloured them with copics. The hat was stamped on some patterned paper. Then I fussy cut the images out and attached them to the card base with foam tape.

I added some finishing touches – Wink of Stella glitter, glossy accents on the balloons and cake, and some enamel dots matching the colours of the card.

I’m entering this card into the MFT sketch challenge.
