Thanks for hopping with TAWS and 3GJ.We look forward to seeing all your projects!

YOUR challenge will be to come up with a project using THIS photo, a stamp and ribbon.Remember the photo is for inspiration ONLY....~~~be creative, use your imagination and show us what this photo inspired you to create~~~Need some inspiration?

The colors to work with for the Be Inspired Challenge #23 were amazing and I tried my best to make them pop! What better way to make some eye-popping color that to use some hand-dyed, crinkled lime green ribbon from 3 Girl Jam! Love that ribbon! I sprayed a bit of Glimmer Mist for a splotchy effect to the paper and muslin flower, then added a few black rhinestones! The stamps I used are from two new TAWS stamps sets, Words to Live By and Pillow Talk. A perfect combination...TAWS/3GJ...a match made in heaven, I think!














Stamps:  Pillow Talk, Words to Live By (TAWS)
Ink:  Black Stazon, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist
Paper:  Baja Breeze CS, DSP (SU)
Other:  Big Shot, Scallop die (PTI), muslin flower (Heidi Swapp), Black Rhinestones (SU), Crinkled Ribbon (3GJ)
Pin It
