Inky Impressions Challenge #35

Whimsy Stamps Hop Post Click HERE


Good Morning Everyone, Happy Wednesday!!! Its time for another fun Inky Impressions Challenge!!! This weeks challenge is a FUN one!!

Since it is May, many of us are thinking FLOWERS. Rather than challenge you to just using flowers, we would like you to choose two or more from our recipe of sorts using the letters in flowers. For example:

Choose at least two letters from:

F: flowers or faux (faux stitching, faux suede, faux leather...)
L: Lace or lacing
O: circles or circle embellishments (brads, pearls, etc)
W: Water coloring, Wax Paper Resist
E: embossing or easel
R: Ripping, Distressing, tearing or ribbon
S: stitching (real or Faux) or sparkle


Sound like fun?????, I had a blast with this challenge. For my creation today I chose........


F - Flowers
O - Ovals and Circle Embellishments
E - Embossing
R - Ripping and Ribbon


I used the darling image Prayer LiLi , She is such a CUTIE!!! I wanted to try something different and make a card either for sympathy or just a general praying for you card. I used this beautiful cross and sentiment to go along with sweet LiLi. Hope you enjoy my creation today!!!


Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope everyone has a fabulous Wednesday!!!

Here's The Recipe

  • Image - Inky Impressions Stamped in Momento Ink and Colored with Copics
  • Cross - Misc Stamped in Color box ink and Heat Embossed
  • Sentiment - Misc Stamped in Stazon Black
  • Paper - Basic Black,Whisper White, Cappella by Basic Grey
  • Accessories - Self Adhesive Bling, Ribbon Flower, Charm, Nesties
