My Favorite Challenge at Splitcoast

My favorite weekly challenge at Splitcoaststampers has always been the Inspiration Challenge. I love it because it allows for so many possibilities! I am Guest Hosting today and I would love for you to come play along. I chose an inspiration site with a LOT of different kinds of things so something is sure to strike your fancy and inspire you to stamp!

The site is Artful Home and I finally settled on this watercolor painting.
My images are from The {Stamps} of Life's new club set: bee4me set. I love little round cards and made my little scene using the painting as my inspiration. If you love TSOL, you need to check out becoming a club member. It is such a savings, and Stephanie offers so many fun perks!

I stamped in Licorice Ink and then colored in my bee using Copic markers. The Green Apple Baker's Twine is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

And on a fun little note, THIS CARD won Top Three at Clearly Inspired! Cool~!

Stamps: bee4me by The {Stamps} of Life by Stephanie Barnard
