Inspired Stamp Challenge Week, Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of my pairing up with Jennifer McGuire for Inspired Stamp Challenge Week. For more information on the challenge, see THIS post. Here's our inspiration card for today: {Created by me, originally inspired by Kelly, HERE.}
Our stamp for today is Hero Arts Floating Garden (CG192). Isn't it lovely?! Here's what I created for today:
To create the oval, I stamped the Floating Garden image on cream cardstock using VersaMark ink. Then I embossed with clear embossing powder. Next, I applied Distress Inks over the embossed image. The backgrounds were created with Distress Ink (Broken China and Rusty Hinge - my new favorite combo).

Thanks soooooo much for stopping by and for leaving such encouraging and kind comments! You all have me smiling BIG! Now, be sure to hop over to Jennifer's BLOG to see what she cooked up!
