Here's my take on the sketch...

I focused on the graphic of the mouth in the photo on the top right.  It got me thinking about lipstick and how I run the tester at the cosmetic counter across the back of my hand to see if the color goes well with my skin tone.   (sorry.. germaphobe here.. I just CANT put it on my lips!!) 
I stamped one of the swoosh images from Watercolor Brush Strokes in different colors of distress inks to look like lipstick shades.  I used my Misti for perfect placement and spritzed the stamps with water before stamping on watercolor paper. 

The finishing touch was a a splash of the ink  - a spray of drops from my brush here and there and a sprinkle of gold sequins.  Did you check all that gold in the photo?
The sentiment is from the Sparkle and Shine set.  This one is going to my daughter.  She's been working alot lately, and now that she's graduated she needs to focus on a career - and I hope this makes her realize how strong she really is.
