MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #427

Hi everyone! Welcome to this week’s MFT Sketch Challenge! Here is what I came up with: 

Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked in the link-up tool at the bottom of this post. For this card, I used the Peace on Earth sentiment from the Beautiful Blessings stamp set. First, I made a top-folded white card base. Next, I created a balloon using the Circle STAX Die-namics as a stencil. I die cut the circle and used the negative area that I fixed over the card base to blend blue Distress Oxide inks over it with blending tools. I then created the clouds using paint and removed the stencil. I stamped the sentiment in Black Licorice dye ink, drew the string using a black marker and added some sequins.

Here is the sketch #427 for this week’s challenge:

Lovely and absolutely the most realistic hand made clouds I've even seen! I was sure that was a piece of background paper! Amazing...
