July 2017 Inspiration Challenge – Video!

by Therese Calvird

2017 July InspirationChallenge borderHi, it's Therese and I am so happy to be hosting the inspiration challenge for July.  These roses were a gift to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and I thought perfect to share as inspiration.  Firstly I stamped the flowers and leaves from Amazing You Stamp Set and colored the images with Altenew Artist Markers.

Then I used the Shimmer Ink Sprays to add a spattered background and finally a sentiment from Beautiful You Stamp Set.
