{MFTWSC127} Reel Friend


Time for another weekly sketch challenge from My Favorite Things! I LOVE it when the WSC falls in release week- you get an extra peek at all of the Stampy Goodness that will be available SOON!!

I used the soon-to-be-released set Gone Fishin'. LOVE this set- so stinkin' cute!!


I stamped my lil fisherwoman in memento ink onto X-press It Blending card. My go-to for copics! I paper-pieced her shirt and did something really fun with the fishing line. I used a fine glue pen and traced over the stamped line and firmly pressed hemp cord over the glue lines! I left the hemp attached to the roll and cut it off where I wanted to when the glueing down was all over. The hemp had a nice curve in it from being on the roll and it seemed to naturally want to curl up towards the flower embellie (Pretty Posies topped with a Sour Apple Button and hemp bow), so that's where I left it! Like she hooked the flower! Cute huh? 
This stamp actually comes with a waterline, but I wanted to give the water a wavy appearance, so I used the Snow Drifts die to make some gentle swells in the water. I stamped the sentiment onto a Fishtail Flags Layers die in Black Licorice ink.


And here we have the inside, with the other sentiment that comes in this set, as well as the cute fish!



I hope you'll be able to join us this week for a chance to win up to $20 in MFT vouchers! PERFECT for our upcoming release!! Check out the MFT BLOG for more details, as well as the sketch itself and links to the other designers participating today! Thanks for dropping me a line! LOL! (Okay, the goofy little puns end here ;) )
