MFT Sketch #522 & Color Combo #156 - Hang in There

It's so much fun to create just to join in a challenge! I loved this week's sketch #522 from My Favorite Things.

I also. decided to combine the current color challenge #156 in this card as it worked perfectly for the stamps I had chosen.

I used the adorable Best Adventure Bears stamp set and colored the image with my Spectrum Noir Tri-blend markers. I added some white gel pen detailing and die cut it out using the coordinating die set.

I stamped the City Block Background stamp onto some white cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I then used MFT Cement Gray ink to ink blend an ombre effect over the top. I then fussy cut one of the lines of houses. I used the Mini Cloud Edges stencil to ink blend the sky and added the city block on top.

I cut a white cardstock panel measuring 4" x 5.25" and used the Jumbo Peek-a-boo Circle window die (now retired) to cut out the hole in the middle. I then added the scene to the back of the panel.

I stamped the sentiment from the Best Adventure Bears stamp set and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. I then used the Skinny Strips dies to cut it out.

The image and sentiment strip were then added onto the cardstock panel, which was then adhered onto a standard A2 top folding card base.

I finished off the card with some enamel hearts to match the sketch.
I love how this card turned out - the sketch worked perfectly.

I am also entering this card into Timeout Challenge #178 'Life in the City', with the optional twist of ink blending or sponging.

Thanks for looking!
Happy crafting x
