WHAT IF? WEDNESDAY - FROM THE HOUSE THAT STAMPS BUILT

Happy Wednesday, blog friends!!  

It's time for another What If? Wednesday challenge at The House That Stamps Built and this week it's an inspiration challenge.  I love playing with inspiration challenges (I know that's weird....most people don't like them) and have lots of fun seeing what I can create using them.  

Here's the inspiration we're challenged with this week...


Are your creative wheels spinning?  This is such a great inspiration piece and I hope you'll give it a try and play along.  If you do, you'll be in the running for some great RI stamps.  You ecan see the details at The House.

Here is a card I made using this inspiration



I was drawn to the "swirls" and "streaks" of rain as much as the colors.  I chose to use RI Stamp #6909-M "Pinwheel Positive" and used heat embossing with white ep to create the "swirls".  I then used watercolor paints to add the background color and once dry, I added stickles in streaks to create the pouring rain.  My sentiment die is from My Favorite Things and was a freebie.  I cut the sentiment 3 times with different cs colors and off set them in order to get the "shadow" look.  The stitched rectangle frame die is also from MFT.    

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll join the challenge at The House.  If you'd like to see more inspiration, check out the other Rock Stars....you'll see some fabulous cards.
