Freshly Made Sketches #588

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #588!

I still had a few summer stamps and dies on my desk when I saw the terrific sketch from Jen Mitchell this week. To tell the truth, our normal SoCal weather has been so dreary that I am missing my happy place and wave therapy, so living through these images until our sun decides to return.

An MFT cloud stencil and blue inks were used to create the gentle ocean waves on half of a cream panel, leaving the uncolored part to play the role of the sandy beach. An older MFT umbrella die is decked out in rainbow colors and popped up over the MFT Life's A Beach sentiment.

I hope you check out the fabulous Clean Team designs and play along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by,
