{WSC29} Girls Night In!

Man, I am having so much fun with these MFT sketches! They are fun and unique and I can't wait to see what you all do with them this month! Todays sketch got me really excited because I got to ink up a stamp set that I have loved for ages, yet has NEVER seen ink! Gasp! I know. It's sad, but true. I have loads of stamps that have never been used. I am a wee bit of a collector I think!
So here is the sketch, which I turned on the side.

I used WTG Chick Flick for my card, coloured both girls' hair and shirts with copics, as well as the popcorn, floor and couch feet. The couch and pants are paper-pieced. I used some crystal effects to give the bowl a glass look. The panels are all machine stitched with red thread. I used MFT's simply scallop dienamic to cut the black scallop vertical border. In place of the flower embellishment in the sketch, I used the ticket accent stamp in the set, paper-piecing one ticket and colouring the other with warm grey copics, stamping 'Admit One' in black ink. I also added a red button threaded with black & white bakers twine. For the sentiment, I broke up one of the phrases, stamping the first half on the front and the second half on the inside, using scotch tape to mask.



I stamped the sentiment in black ink and the 'treats' in sahara sand ink (a nice, warmish gray ink). More sewing finishes it off.
