WHAT IF? Wednesday #4 - A Repeat Impressions Challenge

Well, today is Repeat Impressions "WHAT IF? Wednesday" challenge. Today's challenge is another sketch.  You can find all the details on the RI blog, The House That Stamps Built.  Just make a card following the sketch that Wendy has created for all of us, upload it to your blog or an on-line gallery (please use the keyword J1610) and link it to the blog.  You will then be entered for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions!  Check out the fabulous creations the other Design Team members have created, too!

Here is the sketch:
For this first card, I used Repeat Impressions stamp #2710-D Small Pine Tree.  I colored the stamp with SU! markers.  The sentiment (from RI) is stamped and matted with Chocolate Chip.  I think the green layers are Handsome Hunter from SU!, but I'm not 100% positive.  I embossed them with a Cuttlebug folder.


I made a second card with this fun sketch, too.  For this one, I used RI stamp #1612-G Ducks on a String and an RI sentiment.  I colored the ducks with SU! markers.  I stamped the image again and cut out the larger duck for the upper square.  The yellow rick-rack is felt.  I embossed the white on the left side with a Swiss Dots CB folder, and rubbed it with yellow ink over the the raised dots and the edges.  I also added a little yellow flower with an orange brad.


Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Love that sketch! And your cards are a great take on the sketch. Lovely! Just a side note as well... I did send you an e-mail after your note to me in your blog post a few days ago. I know you've been busy with your group get together but I was afraid maybe my e-mail had gone into your spam folder! LOL!!
