A Little Unity For A Little Inspiration

Inspiration challenge are my FAVORITE! I know I've said this before but...sorry...I'm going to say it again!...you cannot make a mistake with an inspiration piece! Anything from the piece can inspire. Anything! Color, layout, over all theme...anything! I really love when I can just run with something and go wherever my 'mood' takes me.
...ooo...that's a little scary! LOL....

Todays inspiration piece from Beate for this BIC23, is so clean and crisp but with a touch of whimsy to me. Here's the piece.....
I love the 'white' space and the circles on the rug...the colors...the little tree in the background...so as I was looking at it, I remembered that I had this new little something from Unity...I ordered it a couple of weeks ago but hadn't had a chance to ink it up. I added a little sentiment...some fun ribbon and here you go.....
Simple, right??? Here's the deets....The stamps are both from Unity. The sentiment is from Gratitude = Joy, the circles in the bottom corner is a single called Hullabaloo. I stamped the image in Basic Gray and colored them with my Copic markers. Since I didn't have a lot of coloring I didn't have a problem with 'bleeding' from the markers. This is so not the 'right' ink to use for these markers! :) Then I cut a sheet of vellum to the same size as the card and glued it down with my vellum tape...that stuff really works! I used my ribbon from SU...it's Kiwi Kiss.
That's it! EPLS! I so love EPLS! Be sure and check out the rest of Beate's team...
Hope you are all having a great morning! I'm off to check out the rest of the team and then just try and clean up around here! What a mess my house is!
Have a wonderful day! :)
