July Sketch

**Flourishes has a bunch of sets that are retiring…catch is, once they are sold out, they are gone forever…so get them now!  See the retiring sets that are still available.

I chose to use one of the retiring sets, Nasturtiums.    I stamped the image on Flourishes Classic White card stock and base colored it with Copics.  I then colored it with Prismacolor Pencils and oms.  I used a Quickie Glue pen and some glitter in the flower centers.  Then I trimmed the image out and used it as one of the sketch panels. 


All of the paper is from the Crate Paper Farm House 6x6 paper pad.   I used some tiny Kaiser Pearls on the scalloped bottom of the orange panel and distressed the edges of the sentiment square. 

Don’t miss out on the retiring sets
