Hi there, house friends!!!!  

So hard to believe we're at the end of another month of challenges for The House That Stamps Built....or, for that matter, at the end of another month!!!!   Time really does fly by, doesn't it?

I hope you've been playing along this month with us and our challenges.  You can still get in on all of them in order to get an opportunity to be the lucky one drawn to win a $25 gift certificate for some fabulous Repeat Impression stamps.

I used RI Stamps #2224-L "Cactus"  and RI#4009-G "In All Things" for this card.  The bg was created by sponging Distress Oxide Inks onto a white cs base and then sprinkling water over it to activate the inks.  I then splattered the bg with some watered down white acrylic paint.  

The "hills" were created with a die and, after stamping the cactus image twice, first on the panel where I wanted the image to appear and secondly on a separate piece of cs.  I fussy cut that one out and colored it black with Copic Markers.  I then placed it over the stamped area on the card panel with liquid glue.  You can't see it in this photo very well, but I used a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to accent the cactus. 

I hope you found some inspiration here today and I hope you'll join our challenge today and for the entire month.  The more you enter the better chance you have of winning.  Check out THE HOUSE for all the details.

Take a look at the blogs of these talented ladies for tons of inspiration for this challenge.

Oh Wow - awesome. Isn't it funny we don't notice a stamp until we see a card made up with it.
