Tiddly Inks Challenge Time - Make it like Pops

Oh my heavens, am I really that far behind?  I guess I am....  ugh!

This challenge was supposed to be posted a couple of days ago, but my life has taken some interesting turns lately and obviously I am a little behind.  Luckily you have two weeks to join in, so there's still plenty of time to participate in all the fun!

Our challenge this week at Tiddly Inks is an inspiration one... 



We have a great card from Pops to use for the inspiration.  

I picked a great image from the "boys" section called "Ricky - Fishing Expert".  We have a lot of fisherman in my family, so having this card in my stash will definitely come in handy some day!  I decided to use Pop's card as a sketch to follow since I loved the design so much, but you can use the colors, the image, the sketch, anything that inspires you about her card.  (For more from her, jump on over to her great blog here!)

I colored the image with my Copics, cut a cute postage stamp mat out using a Cricut cartridge, picked some papers out of my stash and stole Pops idea of making it into a simple easel card.  They are so easy to make and have such a special feel to them.  I don't do it often enough... 

Hop on over to the Tiddly Inks blog and join in the fun this challenge.  We have plenty of great cards to inspire you and there's always the opportunity of winning some great images from the store.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Inky Impressions - Use something old (old papers, old buttons)
Simon Says Stamp - What's your favorite (Copics)
Digital Tuesday - Summer lovin
Everybody Art Challenge - Anything goes
Pin and Tack - Anything goes
