Day 4 of Inspired Stamp Challenge Week + Giveaway!

It's Day 4 of my Inspired Stamp Challenge Week with Jill Foster. Be sure to check out Jill's creation HERE next. That girl is amazing.

For today's challenge, we will both be using the Hero Arts Elegant Weeds cling stamp set and THIS remarkable card by Jill for inspiration…

Here is my take on these goodies. I used the Tim Holtz Baroque die cut, lots of Distress Ink, an EK Success punch, an etsy flower and some pearlized water. Fun fun fun to make. I trimmed the edges of the Baroque die cuts to make it more square, and I flicked pearlized water on the completed project for flecks of shine. (Jill is master of the artsy flick. 🙂
