Loves Rubberstamps - Sensational Sunday Inspiration 3/10

I hope you all are having a great weekend!  I have had a few extra days off and have really enjoyed the time.  Work has been really hectic lately, so it was much appreciated that I could take some time off.  I am back today with another Sensational Sunday Inspiration project for Loves Rubberstamps.  Make sure to stop over to the Inspiration blog to see what all the other fabulous ladies have made for inspiration today.

I have used the adorable Apple Blossom stamp from the Little Cottage Cuties Collection by Elisabeth Bell (Whimsy Stamps).  Isn't she just the sweetest?  I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on cryogen paper.  She is colored with copics.  I used the air brushing to make some clouds also in the background and also colored some grass for her to stand on.  Everyone loves the feel of grass on their bare feet right?  I used Spellbinders Labels 18 to cut out the image. The papers are all by Simple Stories, Summer Fresh line.  I just love the rich colors.  I tore the papers and added some walnut stain distress ink and some stitching around the edges for some extra fun.  I finished her off with some ribbon from The Pink Petal, a button, twine, safety pin and some pearls.  I have to say, I was thrilled with the way she turned out.

Copics used:
Skin:  E000, E00, E21
Hair:  E15, E18, YR21
Dress/Socks:  B91, B95, B97, B99
Underdress/Socks:  W0, W1, W3
Dog:  E30, E33, E35, E37
Basket:  E41, E43, E44, E47, Y12, Y23, Y24
Apples:  G20, G21, G24, G28, R24, R29, E07
Grass:  E44, G24, G85, G99, N5, YG95

For the inside, I used the matching papers from the front by Simple Stories, Summer Fresh line.  The sentiment is by Stampin Up, Polka dots & Paisley.  

Make sure to stop by the Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Blog and leave the design team some love.  By doing so, you will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win some spending money to Loves Rubberstamps store.  Laura has just added a bunch of new Magnolia stamps and is now carrying copic markers.  I think I might be in trouble. Yikes!!

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
