A little Night Owl crafting

Saturday, March 1, 2014

Hello friends! Hooray for the weekend. I love these lazy Saturdays because that means that Friday evenings are perfect for a little Night Owl crafting!

I love to participate in My Favorite Things challenges. So last night I stopped by the blog to see what this week's sketch challenge was.

I was really inspired by Melody Rupple's sample of this week's sketch. She used molding paste with one of the new MFT stencils to create with. I had an "I have some of that stuff" moment and went digging into my closet.

I don't have any MFT stencils but I did purchase a Prima stencil last weekend at Custom Impressions last weekend so I used that to try this technique out with.

Here's how my first attempt at using the molding paste turned out.

for believing in me

I used MFT's Sending Thanks set for my sentiment. After looking through my stash of MFT stamps, I realized I need some smaller sentiments since I keep using the same set. I have several Pure Innocence sets but the sentiments didn't seem to fit the style of the card.

Here's a closer look at the detail. I love the way this turned out. I want to try using mists, copics and other ideas for adding color to the molding paste.

I love how you used the paste...no need for color on it, as your accents highlight the beauty. This card really caught my eye on FB and I just had to come comment! Gorgeous! =)
