Freshly Made Sketches #604

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #604!

The always elegant Clean Team designer, Cécile Ribon, has provided a lovely sketch this week! I immediately pulled out MTF Abstract Art and a paintbrush while I went back and forth over whether to stamp the brushstrokes images or paint them with watercolors. As you can see, the stamped images won.

The top center area of the square panel is very lightly inked with pale blue before the stamped swipes of color were added. The MFT Itty Bitty Summer sentiment is heat embossed in Platinum next and then the Wplus9 sailboat adhered with the body and tip of the mast tight to the panel and the sail popped up with foam adhesive.

In addition to the fabulous Clean Team designers we have one of the winners of our Challenge #600 winners, Annette Elias, as a special Guest Designer this week.  I hope you check out all their amazing creations and play along with us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
