When your crafting mojo has gone walk about and you have that urge to create something but haven't got a clue where to start why not take a look at the Weekly Sketch Challenge at My Favorite Things - a new one is posted every Wednesday HERE.

Not only do we provide oodles of inspiration to get those creative juices flowing again, but if you join in the challenge and we really hope you do, then you have the chance of winning a $50 Gift Voucher to mftstamps.com

Anyway here is my interpretation of Sketch 346

As you can see there is very little Copic colouring..........just the grey stripe and around the edge of the teeny weeny spider in the middle of the maze.

The spider/web background was created using the awesome Fab-BOO-lous Friends - I simply randomly stamped the web and spider images all over a pre-cut piece of Cement Gray card using Blueprints 31 with MFT Hybrid Cement Gray ink.

Can you see the tiny spider in the centre, well he is actually the background spider stamped on to a piece of shrink plastic.  I coloured him with black pencil, trimmed around him and then shrank him with a heat gun.  Now, that stuff is a little hit and miss for me, sometimes I get great results and on occasions I've ended up with a blob of melted plastic - this time thankfully it worked!

What do you think of the maze's we have in the store - cool aren't they and they fit inside our awesome round shaker pouches, so you don't have to mess around with acetate and foam tape.  I opted for black but we have white and even a multi-colour pack.

Now to cut out the circle I used the window part of the Circle Shaker Window and Frame die, but I omitted to cut out the frame - I wanted a much cleaner look for this card.  Oh and the circle I cut out, well I fitted in the pouch, maze and ball bearing and then carefully replaced the circle, with the spider glued into the centre, mindful to line up the stamping - I then taped it all in place.  

And by the way no-one is too old for a maze card.......when I showed my husband what I'd created he sat there playing with it until he had got the little ball bearing into the middle & hit the spider!!

Anyway, it's over to you guys - it's a really fun sketch this week!
Have a go, you never know you may be the lucky winner and get a $50 voucher to spend in the MFT store!
