Sketchy September and Another Winner!


Welcome to the September Pre-Release Challenge at Flourishes!  This month's challenge is a fun one, just pick any of the above versions of this sketch...and create!  You could be in the running to receive all of our September releases....that's 5...yes count them FIVE wonderfully gorgeous new sets coming to you starting next week.  

I decided to go with a fall theme, and one of my favourite fall sets A Season of Thanks.  I think it's stunning.  


This sketch was super easy to work with.  I inked up my image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Flourishes Classic Ivory paper.  I paired the sketch with some scored designer paper using the Scor-Bug tool and the Scor Pal Mini Board, then I added an Edgeabilities border (Classic Edges One and Classic Petals ), and finished it off with a beautiful ribbon bow (that also helps frame the image because of the long tails), and then some Basic Grey buttons and Ivory Jute twine.  


I'm really pleased with the colouring too, Copics in rich fall shades.  









For some more beautiful inspiration with this sketch please visit the fabulous Senior Design Team....and then join us in the Challenge!  Link up on this post on the Flourishes Blog.  

AND for the winner of the Flourishes Sets for our Giveaway week.... Congratulations to..
