Teacup Friend

Inspiration is found in so many places and in so many ways.  Today's card was inspired by a sweet pair of socks (BELOW) I saw when playing along with the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast.  
I wanted to create a muted looking background so I inked up my Flower Flourish with Worn Lipstick, Barn Door and Picked Raspberry Distress inks, sprayed with water to blend the colours then stamped onto a piece of scrap paper before stamping onto my card front.  Next, I stamped the bunny from Garden Critters with Memento black ink, coloured with Copic markers and pop dotted it onto my card front.  I thought the Softer and Kinder sentiment worked so great with the image.

I am adding my card to these challenges:
CAS on Sunday- COLOUR ME PRETTY
Simply Create Too- SHOP YOUR STASH


Thanks so much for coming by to take a look.

Supplies:  stamps- Penny Black/ Copic markers/ Memento Bl/ Distress ink/ pop dots
