Inspiration Challenge & Speedy the Cat's Friends

Today's challenge site for the SCS Inspiration Challenge was LoveArtWorks, an Etsy store of very interesting clay pieces. After looking through the site, I settled on one of artist Kristen Love's black, white and one-color creations as the starting point of my card. I also wanted to incorporate this week's Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge to use embossing.





This is the bowl I chose as my inspiration piece. Her one color (in addition to the black and white) was red -- perfect for the cherries. I stamped the images with Palette Noir Black and clear-embossed them. The background was embossed with a new Tim Holtz crackled embossing folder. There was just enough room on the background piece for that little sentiment.
