Hello House Friends, 

It's Wednesday and time for another challenge at The House That Stamps Built blog. 

Here is a stamp collage card I made for this challenge using RI#6205-M "Mr. Goof" , RI#8215-D "Meow", RI#631-G "Single Rose", RI#5131-I "Pine Needle Sil." and RI#6806-U "Sheet Music".  

To begin, I first made a bg with a light water color wash on a piece of watercolor paper.  Then drying the piece and stamping that adorable cat face with Archival Ink.  I made a mask for him and stamped the other stamps around the masked area to create the collage.  I removed the mask and using watercolor pens, I colored in the cat face and the roses.  The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I used Copic Markers to color the eyes on Mr. Goof.  

Sadly, this is my last post as a Repeat Impressions Rock Star.  It's been quite a run and I've enjoyed each and every moment I've been on this team.  I will miss hanging around with some of the most talented paper crafters on the planet.  They've all inspired me.  

I'm forever grateful to Wendy Wyman for taking a chance on me 8 years ago, and giving me one of the greatest opportunities in my crafting life and for trusting me to show off her awesome stamps.  

Thank you for stopping by each week and for taking time to leave me a comment.  I appreciate you all so very much.  I will miss you too.

I'm so sad. That's all I'm going to say about that! (Forrest Gump) your card is a perfect 'last card'. Love every little detail, my friend! Thanks for all of the support, encouragement, and inspiration you've given to me, and so many others. You will be missed! Love and hugs, and of course, blessings galore for your future endeavors!
