I Spy - MFT Sketch Challenge 329


I was inspired by the sketch from this week's MFT Sketch challenge and managed to find a bit of time to play along.

I recently bought the adorable Ninja-mazing stamp and die sets from MFT and I wanted to create a bit of an Japanese looking theme on the card to go with the set.

Stamping in black ink on red...check...but what to use? I decided that the Wavy Coloring Book Background Stamp would create the effect I was after. 

I turned the sketch horizontally and changed the size of some of the elements a little to make my card.

To create the little scene in the centre of my card I first made a mask with a circle centre and used MFT Red Hot premium die ink and my blender to make a sun and then stamped an image from the stamp set over the top with Onyx Black Versafine Ink and coloured in with a C7 Copic marker. I layered this on top of some vellum.

I stamped and coloured my Ninja, (don't faint but I coloured him with Copics, I dug them out, but I've given away several and didn't really have enough shades of grey for the black, so I had to make do with a C2 and a C& only lol),  and tucked him behind the layers when I glued them to the centre of the card. I cut a thin strip of black cardstock and then stamped and cut my sentiment and added that to my card. I finished with a little Shuriken.

  1. Wow.... stunning in red and black... and such a perfect design too with that fab ninja peeking out! Your blacks on him are perfect even though you only used the two greys... that's obviously all that's needed!
