My Favorite Bookworm

***  Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my post for this week's Color Throwdown challenge!  ***

There's big news to share here today!  I'm so excited to announce that I'm joining the design team at SugarPea Designs!  I had so much fun as a guest designer there in May and I couldn't say "yes" quick enough when Wendy asked me to become a full-time member of the talented team. 

My Favorite Bookworm card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from SugarPea Designs

For my first official post as a team member, I'm sharing a card I created for SPD's newest color challenge.  I combined three sets from SPD's last release for my card.  Most of my images are from the Read Between the Lines set.  I used the set and several different pigment inks to create the book-filled shelf on my card.  The set's bookworm image was colored with Copic markers and cut out. It doesn't show well in the photo, but the lenses in the worm's eyeglasses were covered with Glossy Accents for a glass-like look.

For the sentiment, I used stamps from three different sets.  "For" came from the Bee My Honey set, "my favorite" came from the Teddy Bear Picnic set, and "bookworm" came from the Read Between the Lines set.  I love mixing and matching sentiments from different sets to get exactly what I want and that worked perfectly here!
