Hello there, now I confess this is a first for me, as I'd never used Chibi lights before this collaboration and I have to say I am pretty pleased with the results.

As a complete novice, I kept mine simple, but hey, my little Yeti's heart lights up when you press the button, which makes me smile......that's what counts right!

My card base is a top folding square card using MFT Sno Cone cardstock.  The main background was created using Bristol paper that I cut and dry embossed with 2 Stitched Square dies.  This was then inked with Tumbled Glass Distress ink.

The adorable little beast was stamped on to Copic suitable card with Hybrid Cement Grey ink and coloured with a combination of Copic Markers, coloured pencils and white gel pen.

Face: E0000, E000, E00, E40, E41, R20, W1, W2
Eyes: YG61, YG67, W8
Fur: BG000, W1, W2, W3, W4, W6

A tiny heart hand punch created his heart with the button being made from a die from Blueprints 29.
Additional sparkle was created with Nuvo drops and a Wink of Stella pen.

Here is the Yeti with his heart lit up:

It is lit up I promise....I took another photograph in the dark to prove it!

As a complete beginner, rather than me clumsily trying to explain how I used the Chibi's I shall instead direct you to a fabulous YouTube video HERE produced by my Design Team mate Karolyn......she's awesome and her clear instructions really helped me complete this task with ease!

If you have not done so already be sure to visit the MFT Blog not only for links to all the Design Team members joining in today but for your chance to win some Chibi lights!

I do hope if you haven't been doing so already that todays post inspires you to enter this fun and oh so easy challenge......you never know you could be the lucky winner of the $50 MFT Store voucher that's up for grabs!

This weeks sketch looks like this:

Here is my interpretation of it:

As you can see I opted for a very simple inked background - created by masking off the top and bottom of my A2 top folding Kraft card base and blending Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink.  That's when the fun started.......using Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap refills and a splatter brush, I set to flicking ink across the card.  I adore the optical illusion that the top portion of the card is darker than the bottom, when in fact it is all Kraft, just with different colour splats!

The dogs, from Canine Companions were stamped with Hybrid Gravel Grey ink, coloured with Caran D'Ache Luminance pencils and then trimmed by hand.  I added the little paw prints from You Make My Tail Wag........I don't think the little Chihuahua is responsible for them, do you, his feet are far too small.

So come on, please come join for this weeks challenge HERE
