It's July! And we're ushering in a brand new month of great stamps in the coming week from Flourishes! So that means a great new challenge we're inviting you to join us in! This month it's a fun sketch to get your creativity jump-started, and you can read on to find out the details for the challenge below.
I pulled out the wonderful Glamour Girls stamp set for this sketch. Okay pulled out might stretch it a bit, I simply slide if over on the stamp table from the side. ha ha!! First I want to say NO that is not dirt around the frame nor on the pearls. I used the awesome suduko pen and it always looks like dirt in the photo. gggrrr... It is sparkly and sorta golden IRL I promise. ha ha  My framed hole is using our Tailor Made Classic Bookplate Die.
My image is stamped underneath onto classic white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo black ink. Colored with copic collections:

After the image was colored I layered down the base cardstock with my hole over the image. My pink paper is from the Color Made Easy Poppy collection layered onto our Classic Black. Added some white lace trim under my sentiment that I tied of with the pretty prima. Voila!
Now, for some lovely inspiration with this sketch here's what the Design Team has to show off...
