RI What If? Wednesdays Challenge




Hello and happy Wednesday everyone~


I’d like to tell you all about a NEW challenge from Repeat Impressions, called “What If? Wednesdays”!!!

Starting today, What If? Wednesdays is going to be posted over RI blog every other Wednesdays. And for today’s challenge, Wendy (RI owner) has created this wonderful sketch for you to play! The fun part is….you have a chance to win a blog candy when you participate!!

To find out the challenge detail, Please check RI blog “House That Build Stamps”.  The link system is also provided to the bottom of the WIW challenge post for you to enter your name and card. So, why don’t you join us with some stamps & inks (use RI stamps if you have any)? I can’t wait to see what you’ll create with the sketch!!


Here is my take using the sketch…



I used 2 different Nestabilities (scallop square and label 3) and created the main layers. I stamped the sentiment from Quartet Complement Series on the white mat and sponged the mat. The birdhouse was stamped and colored with Copic markers. Then I trimmed around the image and adhered above the sentiment. I embellished the card with buttons, pearls and the red ribbon. Instead of the small dots on the border from the sketch, I pleated the ribbon :) The bottom of the white layers (both front and inside) were punched with my new toy – MS border punch :):)


Now, check out the creations using the sketch by other Rock Stars!!
