Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week - Birdbath

Happy Monday, Everyone!  Time for a new Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week.  This week's stamp is Birdbath and can be found on this page.  You can purchase this stamp for 50% off through next Sunday.  For all the details, please visit the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built.  You will also find all the wonderful creations by the Rock Stars there, too.  Or, follow these links:

I started with a piece of "faux marble" cardstock that had been made by someone else.  (I got it in a box of "hand-me-downs" from a co-worker of my son.  You can kind of see the different colors in the paper, along with the gold.)  I stamped the birdbath on it and cut it out.  I embossed with a Quickutz folder and cut a piece of cardstock to fit in the opening.  I brayered in the grass and the sky, then stamped the blades of grass with a Repeat Impressions stamp.  The butterflies were punched with a Martha Stewart punch out of more pre-marbled cardstock and then I added a pearl to each one.  I matted with black.

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