Repeat Impressions WHAT IF? Wednesday Sketch

The weeks fly by, don't they! It's time for another WHAT IF? Wednesday challenge from Repeat Impressions. Wendy comes up with our sketch and we challenge you to play along. Here is the sketch for this time:

For my card, I used the RI stamp called Shade of the Elm, available on this page. I stamped it with an old Memories pad of Soft Wheat and matted with burgundy cardstock. The sentiment is called Life is Not ... and can be found on this page. I stamped it with burgundy ink, cut it with a Nestability and sponged with Soft Wheat before removing from the die. I matted with a matching scalloped oval. I embossed the background with an Argyle Cuttlebug folder and brayered with Soft Wheat. I added butterflies punched with Martha Stewart punches and then used pearls for their bodies.


You have almost another week to participate in the RI Designer's Choice challenge, too. The challenge that's currently open is to make a shaped card and be entered for a chance to win a full sheet of unmounted rubber. That's a lot of stamps! You can find the details for that challenge here.


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

Lovely sketch! I really like it. You've made it so serene with the lightly stamped image and meaningful quote. Very nice!
