Tuesday Inspiration

Today is Inspiration Day with Claudia & Company and I have a card to share with you.
For my card I used Jack and Sasha from The Greeting Farm's newest kit, Creepin.  I colored Sasha so it looked like she was wearing a shirt beneath her dress since that is something my daughter would do (especially with a dress like this), and then added some sparkle to her boots, bracelet and eye shadow.  Because they are overlapping layers, I attached them using both my atg gun and 3-D dots.  The designer papers are from the Lili Bee Lovely sampler pack .  I wanted to bring out the patterns of the papers throughout my design so I embossed the kraft panel with a houndstooth embossing folder and used a border punch.  All layers of the paper have been distressed and then sponged with a chocolate ink.  The buttons were a bit too clear, so I colored them with a copic (BG13) before adding the teal bakers twine (which I also sponged over with chocolate ink) to them.   I don't do all out distressing too often, but I think it worked out well with this particular card.

Stop by the Claudia & Co. blog for more inspiration from the Design Team and remember that you still have until this Saturday (March 19th) to enter our current recipe challenge.
