Get Sketchy!

Hello all and welcome the first of Flourishes' fun-filled noon time challenges during release week!! It's exciting with three new stamp sets on the line! Today, it’s all about a sketch for you to try. Give it a whirl and you could walk away with all three of Flourishes new sets for June!

HOW TO PLAY: See this sketch above? All you need to do is make a card or creation by using this as your inspiration and you’ll be in the running! It’s just that easy! With three stamp sets on the line, what are you waiting for? Just click HERE for the official rules and to link up your creation when you're done.

On to my creation! This sketch above is on the simple side, so I thought -- what better way to just let Flourishes new Zinnia stamp set sing? I love to color and this floral is a dream to color!

All of the elements that I used are a part of the 123 Create Kit called Venice. I just love the rustic shades in this kit. After stamping my image on Flourishes Classic White with Memento Tuxedo Black, I did color my image up with Copic markers and used the Falling Leaves, Sunflower and Spruce Collections grouped by Flourishes. After I was done coloring and blending, I used the shades BG000 and BG0000 to highlight around my image. After matting it up, add some paper piercing, some silver cording and... ta da... done!

Here's a closeup, so you can see the paper piercing and also the small sentiment I added from the set as an accent on the side of my flower bunch....

And that, my friends, is it! Need a little inspiration? Check out these fine ladies creations to get those creative juices flowing!

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing in the fun! So, what are you waiting for? Get inky and join us in the fun!
