Freshly Made Sketches #497

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #497!


I am hosting the challenge this week and came up with a sketch that was designed around a couple sentiment strips. Of course, you can add your sentiment anywhere and do something entirely different for the strips!

The Rubbernecker Layered Poppy stamp is heat embossed on watercolor paper before being watercolored. Although I have always loved red poppies, the orange California poppy has really stolen my heart in the last few years and seemed appropriate for wedding wishes from us California relatives to my nephew and his fiance.

An MFT Bitty Birthday Wishes stamp is paired with the MFT Document It - Off the Chart stamp to make the full sentiment on the two strips. Twine wrapped around the panel provides the vertical strip and completes the design.

I  look forward to seeing how you are inspired by the sketch this week! Check out the Clean Team designs and play along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
