RI What If? Sketch Challenge J210





Happy Wednesday everyone~


It’s time for Repeat Impressions What If? Sketch challenge!! Wendy made another wonderful sketch for us to play!! Please feel free to change the card size and rotate if you like. You don’t have to use the stamps from Repeat Impressions but if you would like to include our design, we’d love to see what you do with them!

All participants will have a chance to win $25 Repeat Impressions gift certificate! Please check RI blog, The House that Stamps Built for more information about the challenge.



So, here is my idea…I stared from changing the card size. I stamped “Mermaid, 4112-O” and colored with Copic markers. I cut the image and adhered on the circle mat. I added the glitter on the scale…I don’t like to use glitter at all because I can easily make a lot of mess! But I like how the mermaid turned out :):)  I used the sentiment from “Quartet Complements” Series set. Don’t you think the sentiment is so right on the mermaid?? lol. I picked the crocheted lace ribbon because they remind me fish nets. Also I picked pearls for one of the embellishments because they are from ocean, you know ;)




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