Happy Hump Day Everyone!! I hope you are all having a great week!! Unfortunately the weather has been very dreary and raining and both my girls are sick. Now that is depressing!!! They must have caught some sort of flu in Virginia....
Anywho...Today is Wednesday and time for another Inky Impressions Challenge...
Since it is May, many of us are thinking FLOWERS. Rather than challenge you to just using flowers, the Inky Impressions team is challenging you to choose two from our recipe of sorts using the letters in flowers. For example:
Choose 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
Please let us know the letters and items you chose.
This weeks challenge will be going on for TWO WEEKS so you have plenty of time to come and join the fun. No need to use Inky Images but if you have them we would love to see you use them!!!! To be eligible to get Inked by the Inkettes you must have all creations uploaded to Mr. Linky by May 31st by Midnight Eastern Time. We can't wait to see your creations!!!
