MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge...

So I used up a little artistic license with today's MFT Sketch.  I kept it nice and CAS as always but used the watercolors in the background for the layers in the sketch...

I cut out the watercolor design with the Wonky Rectangle die and then added that to the card base.  I used the Arrow Greetings die to create the black hello and attached it to a piece of vellum.  I wanted to use vellum for that portion of the sketch, to let the color show through.

To give it a more muted look, I popped the vellum up.  Popped it up you say?  Like as in with foam tape?  Nope!  I actually stacked 5 of the same "hello" die cuts and glued them all together.  Then I took that stack and glued it to the back of the vellum hello and attached it to the card front.  Here is a side shot so you can see.....

The thin top black layer is the visible sentiment, the the vellum and then 5 stacked up hellos underneath.  Fun huh?  This is a great way to pop up vellum by hiding the actually pop up.  :)

Here is this week's sketch......

Stop over to the MFT blog to see more Sketch cards for this weeks challenge.  Thanks so much for stopping in!  

Have a great day!
