Peachy Keen Stamps {Guest Designer}: Sketch Challenge

How fun is the sketch for this week's challenge?


I decided to flip the sketch and use it on a pillow box {a small one that is the perfect size to hold a gift card} and use the absolutely ADORABLE Happy Bird and Phrases stamp set.




I stamped directly onto some patterned paper and then used a few light colored Copic markers to add a bit of dimension.


I stamped a small piece of a background stamp in VersaMark Watermark ink and then stamped the "You put joy in my heart!" sentiment directly onto the pillowbox using Tuxedo Black ink.


Keeping with the "Think Bling" theme for this challenge, I topped it off with some rhinestones and now I have a fun gift card holder to give away to someone special.

Would you like to win a something special from Peachy Keen Stamps?
