Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week - Mussel Shell

Wow - Monday already!  Time for a new Stamp of the Week from Repeat Impressions.  The stamp for this week is 4107-G Mussel Shell.  You can find it on this page.  For this week only, you can purchase this stamp at 50% off.  Check out the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built, for all the details and to see the creations by the other Rock Stars.  Or check out these links to their blogs.

For my stamp, I stamped the shells on Kraft cardstock with brown ink.  I cut them out and spritzed them with three colors of Glimmer Mist to give them color and sparkle.  (I wish you could SEE the sparkle!)  I mounted them on Dimensionals.  I used small ink pads and rubbed them directly on the Kraft cardstock to make the water and sandy shore.  The sentiment is from Repeat Impressions, of course:)  I matted with a brown cardstock and mounted the image panel on Dimensionals, also.


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

Lynette, those Mussel shells look so real, you had me thinking you had gone into a totally different direction in your card making LOL! Great job with your colours.
