Friday greetings to you, it's Rhonda here today to host the new blog challenge for July. I chose a sketch for this month as it's always fun to help get those creative ideas going.  Here is the sketch provided by a former design team member, Lynn Shokoples: 

Here is my take on the sketch:

I used a variety of our three new paper collections and included stickers and chipboard from Whistlin' Dixie. The stamping features Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalk Ink. 

I added bits of washi tape and enamel dots for texture. A bit of stitching is also used to tack down my corrugate photo mat. I used a variety of mists to achieve the colorful effect, then misted overall with a white to soften and blend the colors.

I love how the vibrant mist droplets pop off of the page and coordinate with the papers color scheme. 

We hope you inspired by this sketch like we were!  We can't wait to see your take on it!!!
