MFT - Wednesday Stamp Club

Happy rainy Sunday!!  I am just so beyond thankful for the rain that's about to come here in the Northeast as my lawn, plants and garden so desperately need it!  And, at the end of a long vacation week home with my two super active kiddies, this Mommy needs a bit of crafty respite and a grey day is just perfect for that!  Today's creation is for the most recent MFT sketch challenge. 
I dug through all of my MFT stamps as I have quite a few that I (gulp) have never inked!  So today I'm using the adorably sweet Little Lamb - Better Together set.  It is impossibly sweet for many occasions. 
I started first by pulling my papers from MME together, along with my brads, cork and ribbon.  I then settled in to color the image, which is stamped with Momento, with my Copics.  I used some light grey tones and then my Floral and Brick white Copics to create their sweet fur and then pulled in the orange and brown tones to create shading with teeny tiny dots.  I truly adore this treatment and think it looks just so cute!  After coloring I paper pieced each of their pants, tops and tiny left hand of the lamb on the right.  I added this panel to my card using some fabulous Jody Boosters
I used my favorite self-adhesive cork for the Wonky Scalloped Die-namics edge, lots of fun and somewhat subtle stitching and mini black brads to anchor my corners.  I am SO loving on the new Fishtail Flag STAX Die-namics!!  If you don't have them you simply MUST grab them up right here!  I promise you, they are a fantastic staple to have in your creative arsenal.  I paired my creation with some black and white check ribbon tied in a fluffy bow in lieu of the circle element as shown in the sketch.
I finished off the interior using the second half of the sentiment and I added a couple of Stacking Star Die-namics that I already had cut and leftover on my desk.  Love when that happens!
I added one with a dab of adhesive and the other is popped up on a Jody Booster
Thanks for popping by today!  I hope you have enjoyed my creation and that you'll come play along with this amazing sketch right here

Crafty Hugs!
