I wanted to use my MFT Harvest Mouse set again, and I thought I'd try using the current MFT Wednesday sketch challenge:
I futzed with my die-cut pieces and the layout for a while, and I ended up turning it on its ear:
I was also working from memory, so the layout might be a little bit off. Here's my card:
I wanted to use this guy and the basket of apples, to make it look like he'd selected a special apple from the basket. I also decided I was tired of coloring, so I paper-pieced his sweater. Doing that made me also paper piece his tiny paw so it wasn't green.
The white rectangle was a UFO next to my die-cut machine, and I thought it worked well to off-set the image from the busy background paper.
To anchor the sentiment, I used a teeny tiny Hero Arts button from a package I found while re-arranging things on my shelves. I love it when I can actually use stuff I've had forever. The sticker on this package of buttons is from a LSS (an LSS?) that no longer exists, so they're maybe eight years old? *so proud*
Oh, and in case you can't tell, that skinny strip of washi tape stands in as the banner element in the sketch. I just didn't feel I could put it over the circle in my version.
Now that I look at this, I like that the pattern in the green paper looks like a cable-knit sweater. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
Some of the stuff I used: SU 2-way glue pen, washi tape, Copics (0, W0, W1, W3, RV11, R22, R24, R29, E71, E74, E35, E41, E53), Hero Art Tiny buttons.
