{Embellish} color challenge with squares


Here is this week's Embellish Magazine challenge, sponsored by Inchie Arts.  As soon as I saw the word "inchie", I decided I would work with these hardly-touched miniature stamps from Inkadinkado, from a set called Flower Garden. 


I chose this lovely little rose design, and stamped it 4 times on Hero Arts iris layering paper, a really pretty shade.  Then I used my 1 1/4" square punch to cut them out.  These were arranged on a  square piece of black cardstock, which was then popped above the green card base.  I just found this old lace seam tape yesterday, while going through my sewing basket, and somehow it just seemed right with the roses. 

Supplies: Inkadinkado 98770 Flower Garden clear stamp set, Hero Arts CL181 SparkleClear Messages, iris layering paper, green and black cardstock, Versafine onyx black ink, Talon stretch lace seam tape, black gem
