It’s the third Wednesday of the Month and time for The House That Stamps Built photo inspiration challenge. For July we have some patriotic stars!
As with all our challenges, let the photo be your guide and use your creativity to inspire you. You have until Tuesday, July26th to enter for a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate at Repeat Impressions. If you use a Repeat Impressions stamp, you’ll get an extra entry!
Here’s the inspiration chosen by our Rock Stars:
For my card, used a cut out some My Favorite Things Dies out of a red card stock panel, then stamped the Repeat Impressions “Small Silhouette Star 5140-C” with Hero Arts Navy ink, then fussy cut them out and centering in the star die negative space. The sentiment is “I Thank 2523-G” also stamped in Navy ink.
Today, I made a card using a technique found on CD 10 from August/September 2012, called, Colorwash Alcohol Technique. I then stamped the stunning “Mermaid Love S698” using Versafine Black Onyx Ink, then clear heat embossed.
The sentiment is also a July release called, “Better at the Lake – Set of 5 – SS059”. I’m really pleased with how Stream, Sailboat, and Wheatgrass inks look like water.
Well, I’m off to go make some more cards.
See you soon,
