What If? Wednesday at Repeat Impressions

Hello blog friends!

I'm back with another fabulous sketch challenge for What If? Wednesday at Repeat Impressions aka The House That Stamps Built Blog

Wendy has come up with another fabulous sketch for us so we hope you'll join us in the challenge. 

I'm still in a patriotic frame of mind so used the red, white and blue color scheme to create this card.  I'm really giving the new Big Boys Toys stamp set some love and attention lately.  It's so much fun to ink up and stamp with. 

For this card I used two silhouette stamps, Big Boys Toys #9111-I, Bi-plane Silhouette, inking it with Distress Ink "Red Barn".  I then masked it and stamped the cloud #5105-I, Cloud Sil. (lg) Memento "London Fog" ink.  The stamping left a distressed look to the larger cloud, but I liked it as it added some texture to the cloud itself (or so I thought).  The sentiment is from the Big Boys Toys set too.  My bg dp is from the new Authentique "Glory" 6x6 paper pad. 

So head on over to The House That Stamps Built and play along with the Rock Stars.  You can get more inspiration from linking to their blogs.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a creative day!!!

Hi blog friends! 

Happy Memorial Day!  
Today is the day we in the USA set aside to remember those who served in our military and gave their lives for the freedoms we cherish.

At the same time we honor those men and women and their families who are currently serving and continue to perserve those freedoms.

Please take some time today to reflect on freedom, what it means to you and the price paid to keep it.

Thank you!!

Head on over to The House That Stamps Built and snag the code that Wendy is providing and get this fantastic sentiment stamp #3101-J and get creating something fabulous. 
For this card I was thinking "Graduation".  I used some legal pad dp and cut it, punched the three holes and rounded the corners before stamping the sentiment on my "page".   I then used DI "Antique Linen" to "age" the edges. 

I'm entering the above card on Lily Pad for the Simon Says Star Challenge
