RI SOTW–Week of Sep 19th, 2011



Hello again,

I have one more card to share with you today. It’s another week for Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week! This week’s SOTW is a beautiful stamp, Swan (4319-H). The SOTW is available exclusively to our RI blog readers at 50% OFF with the special discount code from Mon, Sep 19th to Sun, Sep 25th. To get the discount code and more information about the SOTW, please go to the RI blog, The House That Stamps Built.


It was simple steps to create but I really love how it was turned out! (Of course, I’m not thrilled about the theme of the card….I hope I don’t have to send anyone for a while) 

I stamped the swan on the oval panel (glossy cardstock) with Memento black. To color the background, I masked the swan image and sponged the mat with several Memento inks (light blue- blue – dark blue). I also draw the water rings lightly with Copic markers and a white gel pen.  After I satisfied with the shading, I stamped Bamboo (5704-L) on the bottom half of the oval. The card was embellished with the cardstock and designer paper. The saying, Deepest Sympathy (4025-F) was stamped on the grommet tag panel. To finish off, I embellished with the satin ribbon, pearl brads and pearls.
