Day 5 of Inspired Stamp Challenge Week

It’s Day 5 of my Inspired Stamp Challenge with the wonderful Jill Foster

Please forgive my brief post. I am at a stamp retreat in the middle of nowhere on a farm. It is heavenly heavenly heavenly, but the internet connection is slow. ☺

Today we will be using the Three Sunflowers Hero Arts stamp along with THIS inspiration card by Jill.

Here is my take. I white heat embossed the flower on watercolor paper and then painted on lots of Twinkling H2Os. I also stamped over it with Pumice Stone Distress Ink and the Hero Arts Friends Defintion stamp. Added some strips and such and I was good to go…

    Beautiful card, and thanks for reminding me about the twinkling H2O’s …. I haven’t used those for a while. Time to get them out again!


    I would not have thought of doing the sunflowers in white. It is lovely against the blue.

    Jennifer, All these cards have been spectacular, I really loved the one with the stiped background. Dumb questions : Did you paint the H2O’s on each stripe
    and then stamp?
