Inspire Me Tuesday

No, this isn't a Downy add, it's Inspire Me Tuesday at MyCreativeTime! :) I was inspired while doing laundry. Isn't this fabric softener bottle pretty?! I really liked the pinks and orange, and thus this card was born...
I started by stamping and white heat embossing the Type Calendar. A cool way to get more use out of your calendar stamp! :) I quickly colored it with worn lipstick and spiced marmalade distress markers. Then I sprayed it half to death with a mixture of perfect pearls and water in a mini mister and let it dry. You end up with a sparkly watercolor look. I used the same inks and perfect pearls mixture to splatter my card base. 
I cut a circle out of if with a die to create a shaker window. I heat embossed the greeting from the fabulous It's All About You set on vellum. I used vellum to make the window more subtle than using acetate. I filled the window with sequins from Neat And Tangled

Pop over to MyCreativeTime to see more "inspired by" projects.

p.s. If you're wondering, that fabric softener smells divine! :)
