I love the MFT sketch challenges and how they can be interpreted so differently – this is the first one I am taking part in and sharing.
For this challenge I created two both using the MFT full of hearts stencil and the same colour palette but using different mediums. I’ll share the other card in another post.
For the first card I started off by attaching the stencil with some washi tape over a piece of mixed media card trimmed to A6 size which is 105 x 148 mm or 4.1 x 5.8 inches. This is the standard card size here in the UK.
I then applied nuvo embellishment mousse by Tonic Studios using a mini ink blending tool – this gives the same amount of shine but with less texture than applying it with a palette knife. It also uses a lot less product – the creamy consistency means a little goes a lot way.
I applied the following colours from top to bottom; Pure Platinum, Spring Green, Citrus Green, Pacific Teal and finally Old Navy.

After allowing this to dry, which doesnt take long when applied like this, I die cut the panel using the largest of the Creative Plus Wonky Stitches rectangles. These are a great set of dies from CraftStash as they are made specifically for A6 sized papers.

Using the next largest and the smallest I cut out a frame from the centre of this die cut piece-this meant my panel was now in 3 pieces. I attached the largest and smallest of these pieces with a tape runner to my navy A6 card base made from cardstock by Papermill Direct. To enhance the middle frame I first attached some fun foam behind it before attaching it to the card base.
I then die cut some butterflies from some vellum and adhered these to the card panel using some multi medium matte – I added some tiny gems to hide the adhesive.

I then die cut a piece of blue cardstock using the smallest die from the Clearly Besotted stripped die set and stamped on the ‘Make a Wish’ sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Tiny Type stamp set – which I love!
