My Retreat - Raising The Bar

I've been visiting different challenge blogs for inspiration and came across the challenge for today's card at Raise The Bar challenge #16.  The challenge is to make a card inspired by a room in your home that you consider to be your retreat.  I spend most of my time in my studio, oh I mean at the kitchen table...  When I really thought about it, our entire house has the same color scheme except the hallway bathroom.  It's purple, I mean Wow, purple!  It's only paint.   The rest of the color scheme is the fall palette, I think it all started with forest green carpet.   Joni asked us to show an inspiration picture if possible, mine's below.
For my card I used a cute digital stamp by MelJen's and the sketch is #59 from Eat, Sleep, Stamp blog.  I colored the image with Copic markers pictured below, I also air brushed the hearts with R39 to match.
and I had help with all of this today...
Have a great day, I hope you have some stamping time~

I read your blog (link from Stars & Stamps) and I just caught up on the last few. Your coloring is great! It's making me want to splurge and get some copics so my images can look as good as yours.

Love your card and INKY!!! What a gorgeous cat and you picked the perfect name! Had to show my husband the photo. I have two cats myself but they are 14 and 17 years now! Not so playful anymore!
