Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week - Portland Head Light

Isn't this just an awesome stamp!  This is Repeat Impressions Stamp of the week - available through next Sunday (August 15) for 50% off IF you visit the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built, for the details.  You can find the stamp, 1401-P Portland Head Light (sm), on this page - just scroll down a bit on the page.  Also be sure to check out the amazing creations by the other RI Rock Stars!  You can find links on The House That Stamps Built blog.


For my card, I stamped the image on white cardstock with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I use a fingertip sponge dauber-thingy and Stampin' Up! inks to color the image - kind of going for a watercolor look.  I used Soft Suede, True Thyme, Buckaroo Blue and Baja Breeze.  I matted with Soft Suede cardstock and drew the birds with a Soft Suede marker.


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

Great coloring style for this image!! I have to admit that any kind of coloring scares me to death! LOL!! I really need to just dive in and start practicing and see if I can do it.
