Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 523

Welcome to another Weekly Sketch Challenge!

Turn each inspiring sketch into a mini work of art to add to your stash — you could also add $50 worth of brand new MFT to your collection! Now that is a win-win.

Below you’ll find Sketch 523. Create cards, scrapbook layouts, home decor, treat containers, mixed media, etc. using this week’s sketch and be sure to link your project below for a chance at the weekly My Favorite Things Gift Voucher.

MFT products are encouraged but not required. We just want to see what this week’s sketch inspires you to create! You can enter your cards for this week’s challenge in the Inlinkz Link Up at the bottom of this post.

We're welcoming a brand new guest designer to the Sketch Challenge this month. Join us in extending a warm hello to Sindhu Prajay!

Various rectangle elements make up the sketch design this week, providing a great opportunity for a geometric backdrop for a variety of designs. Sindhu created a Sweet Safari scene, using the rectangles for the grass and sky, with the main stamped elements layered on top.

Laura created a graphic design, layering lots of elements on her rectangle grid. Various fonts and greetings add a unique and modern look to her design with the black, red, and white color palette making a bold impact.

Barbara's elegant design features a quartet of fall leaves with a stunning layer of gold on top to add sparkle and shine. An ink splattered background nicely complements her main images, with a simple stamped sentiment conveying birthday wishes.

Congratulations, Katrina! You are the randomly selected winner from last week's sketch challenge.

You can view all the entries for last week’s challenge HERE.

Now, it’s your turn. You have until January 12 at noon EST to add your link and be eligible for the prize of $50 in MFT Cash to be spent in the MFT boutique. Winners are chosen at random, so everyone has a chance!

I’m in love with all the Valentine’s Day themed items. The couples stamps and dies and the well, just everything. I’m in so much trouble come Tuesday. 😬😳😂😂🤦🏻‍♀️

It’s incredible the amount of variation that can come from a simple layout. I love the simplicity of the leaves yet how realistic they were.
