MFT Sketch 247



Time for a new sketch from MFT!



I went a little off-road on this one, but I'm quite happy with the result.

I started with the Etched Flower Background which was stamped/embossed on watercolor paper.  After trimming it down, I fussy cut out the negative spaces and then added watercoloring.

I created a frame using the Inside Out Rectangular STAX and added a really subtle pattern beneath it.



A strip of vellum softens the sentiment strip.

OK, please head over to the blog to check out what the rest of the team made.
