MFT Getting Sketchy #97

Good morning! It has been a while since I have been caught up enough on stuff to join in with the MFT sketches - but I managed to sneak the current one (MFT Getting Sketchy #97) in yesterday! Here it is:
And here is the sketch for the week:

This came out pretty simple - and the lighting wasn't the best when I took the picture - so sorry for that! 
I used some washi tape from October Afternoon on a kraft paper card base, then used a hand trimmed banner, with a small tab cut with a MFT die-namics. I inked the edges of each with Tim Holtz distress ink. 
I used some tiny Cosmo Cricket stickers to spell out friend, then stamped a MFT sentiment stamp in 3 different colors of Papertrey Ink by masking off the edges. I intended to add stitching with my white gel pen after that, but accidentally grabbed a black glaze pen and didn't notice until after I drew the first stitch! Oops! So...black it was! To compensate, I added a bit of black jute twine to the right side to balance it out!
Finished off with a couple of coordinating self adhesive pearls! 

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you are having a wonderful day!


  1. Great stitching. Super cute.
