Heh, heh... See What I Did There?


So, here's the thing. I don't usually do sketch challenges. For some reason I tend to struggle a bit with using a sketch for my inspiration. That being said, every now and then I see one that just catches me and I simply MUST give it a shot! This MFT Sketch Challenge sketch, was so very much one of those.


Isn't it fabulous? I had a few ideas, but decided to pull out a few Simon Says Stamp inks and an MFT stamp set I've had for awhile and haven't used yet for my design. I wanted to use a unique color combination, as I've found myself reaching for the same few colors a lot recently and wanted to shake things up a bit. This combo is different, but I kind of love how it turned out!

I stamped the equalizer image repeatedly to create the 'stripes' represented by the sketch. I then die cut the super cute headphones and added those along with the sentiment to complete my card. I super love punny sentiments. Heh, heh...see what I did there? (Okay, so I didn't do it, so much, as MFT kindly did that for me by offering awesome punny sentiments in their sets, but... let's just go with it, K? K. Glad we had this talk.)

The colors are teal, pale blush pink, and thistle. I used black and grey on the headphones to keep them neutral, but also to allow them to pop off the patterned background. I had a ton of fun creating this card! I was quite happy for the sketch challenge and the inspiration it provided!

Have a Happy!
