MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #51

Well good afternoon!  It's time again for MFT's Wednesday Stamp club sketch challenge.  I can't believe we're at week 51 - that's almost a whole year of sketches!  I've made an early resolution to participate in all the MFT sketch challenges next year!  I hope you'll help hold me to it!

For this week's sketch I pulled out one of my favorite Fred Bear stamps.  This is Fred Bear & the Megaphone and I just love the sentiments in this set.  I stamped him on X-Press It blending cardstock and coloured him with my copics.  See the texture on his fur?  I used the handy dandy blender solution on a rag trick to make him look fuzzy.  I love the dimension it adds.  I paper pieced his megaphone and used the "out of the box" technique so it protruded out of the image.  I figured my megaphone could do double duty as the tab portion of the sketch.  I added the Wonky Scallop border die along the bottom and the Button Quartet to cut a matching red button for the corner.  All of the patterned papers are Echo Park Winter Park collection.  

I stamped him again inside the card and added another sentiment from the set.  I also cut another strip of matching patterned paper again using the Wonky Scallop Border die for the top.

Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Blog and the MFT forum on SCS (look for the most recent WSC thread). You'll need to upload your card in the SCS gallery using the keyword shown on the sketch. You will have the chance to win up to $20 in MFT money. One winner is chosen at random each week!
