RI SOTW – Week of Jul 12th, 2010



Hello everyone~

It’s a time for Repeat Impression Stamp of the Week!! This week’s SOTW is this gorgeous bird image “Great Blue Heron (1704-P)”. As always, the SOTW is available exclusively to our RI blog readers at 50% OFF with the discount code from Mon, Jul 12th – Sun, 18th. To get the code and more information about the SOTW, please go to the RI blog “The House That Stamps Built”.



As you see, this is a quite large image for the standard card size….so I kept my card pretty simple. I used the color combo from SCS Color Combination Challenge 276 (CC276). I stamped the image and colored with Copic Markers. After I stamped the sentiment, Best Wishes Vertical (6107-J), I draw the frame with the multi liner pen and sponged the inside of the frame with apricot color ink. To complete the card, I embellished the ribbon, the photo corners and the decorative border.




Now, be sure to check out the creations by the Rock Stars below to get more inspirations!!
