Repeat Impressions - Designer's Choice Challenge


What a fun Designer's Choice Challenge this week from Patti at Repeat Impressions. Her choice was to make a black-and-white-and-one-other-color card. Are you up for the challenge?? We'd love to have you join us. Please visit the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built, for all the details and to see the creations by the other Rock Stars. One random winner for the month will win a full sheet of unmounted rubber of their choice. You can find the design team members' blogs by following these links:

My one other color is blue. I started by stamping the Loon with black ink. I masked him off and added the Cattails. I masked off the top and the bottom of the cardstock, then sponged on some Tim Holtz Distress Inks. After adding a little bit of blue, I also added a partial circle and sponged some more. The sentiment is from Repeat Impressions and I stamped it in a straight (well, OK - a little crooked!) line instead of in two lines, the way it comes. I matted with black.

There is a WHAT IF? Wednesday sketch challenge available for you, too. You can find the details here. One random winner for the month will win a $25 gift certificate from Repeat Impressions.


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

I can almost smell the early morning mist from this card, Lynette. It's like a waterpainting and worthy of hanging in a gallery.
