Hello there crafty peeps!  

There's a new inspiration challenge at The House That Stamps Built and here it is. 

Gorgeous isn't it?  Whatever it is that inspires you from this image, (the colors, the texture, the image itself...) go with it and enter our challenge.  You will be entered in the end of the month drawing for a $25.00 gift certificate for Repeat Impressions stamps.  

I was inspired by the colors, and I used watercoloring to try and bring them to the background of this card.  The colors are much better in person.  However, I was also inspired by the texture and used the RI Stamp #1216-O "Ruffled Heart Border" to show that.  The sentiment is RI#1211-J "So Faith".  

For more great ideas for inspiration check out my team mates....their projects are amazing.

We all hope you get an opportunity to play along.  You can get all the details at The House.  

I'm so happy you stopped by.  If you love RI stamps as much as I do, grab my code rr10cw for a 10% discount and enjoy.

Hello there junkies.....

I recently purchased some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks from Technique Junkies Store and I couldn't wait to play with them.  

I first have to tell you how incredibly smooth these inks are to blend, and layering them was so much fun...once I started, it seemed like I couldn't stop.  If you haven't tried them, let me enable will love them! 

Here's a card I made building multiple layers of DOI and a stencil.  The Technique Junkies stamp I used for this card is "Shine Like Sunbeams" .  The words in the stamp are open, and I to help make them pop a little more, I used a gray Memento marker to fill in the open areas.  

The stencil I used is from Memory Box.  After doing all my ink playing, I sprinkled some water on the layer and blotted it off for some added dimension.  I also sprayed some Perfect Pearl spay over the panel for some additional pazazz!
