Loves Rubberstamps - Sensational Sunday Inspiration 3/3

Hello Blogging Friends!

Welcome to March! Spring is just around the corner and I can't wait for the warmer weather.  I love getting outside and feeling the warm sunshine and working in the yard.  Of course by the end of summer, I am never as excited to do the yard work.  Hmmm...

Today I am sharing Sensational Sunday Inspiration with Loves Rubberstamps!  So my inspiration starts with the cute little Bild Malarna image, Mimosa - Hat.  She looks so sweet just sitting there.  I stamped the image with Memento - Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with copics.  After I colored the image, I fussy cut her out so that I could perch her on a window ledge.  The window ledge is actually the My Favorite Things Round Banner die.  I also used pop up glue dots to give her some extra dimension.

The background is done with the Simple Stories Harvest Lane paper pack.  All the papers coordinate so beautifully.  I peeled down the corner added some stitching and a brad in the corner.  I thought it needed something extra, so I used a Tim Holtz adage ticket for the sentiment with some burlap, button, twine and some lace. 

Copics used:
Hat/Pants:  E40, E41, E43
Skin:  E000, E00 E21
Hair:  E09, E09, YR21
Shirt:  YG93, YG95, YG97
Boots:  E71, E74, E77, E71, E74, E77
Flowers:  YR20, YR21, YR24
Background airbrushed with BG10, BG11, BG13
For the inside, I used coordinating Simple Stories Harvest Lane paper pack with some extra lace to trim it out.
