Card Patterns 80 - Inspiration Card

When I first found this stamp from RubberStamp Avenue, I was so drawn to the whimsical feel. It is so different from most of the stamps I use, but I knew I wanted to play around with it. I started with stamping it on a scratch piece of paper, then pulled out my Copics and started doodling on it...before I knew it, I was loving the results. I ended up using the "practice" one because I was so happy with the way it came out. I added a bunch of micro glitter to sections and some laquer to her lips and eye. I let the sketch from Card Patterns be my jump start on the design, but I can definitely call it my own.
I screams "Torrey" to me... Not quite sure why, except that she is my inspiration! She inspires my creativity in ways no one else can or does. So, when I actually conquer a challenge, she's probably the inspiration behind it.
