Last month I told y'all about going to the Stamp Scrap Art Tour in Columbia and what a good time I had, and about all the fun new companies and "things" I discovered. One of these companies was Repeat Impressions. I bought 2 sets of their Waterfall (or what they call "Flip") stamps. I also discovered their blog The House that Stamps Built, from which they host challenges every week. The challenges run for 2 weeks each and vary in theme. Well, I tend to get excited when I discover new things and so I made a card, now get this... 3 weeks ago, to enter for last week's challenge, only to forget to post it & when I did remember it, I was 5 hours too late. Not this week! The theme for this challenge is "Spring using Pastel Colors."
The image I used on this card is a digi stamp I colored last year when I just started using Copics. I think I had maybe 10 or 12 markers at the time. I never used the image because I made a rookie mistake... I printed it a little too big. (I printed a lot of digis too big when I first started using them. Anybody else do that???) You can see it fills up this A2 size card with little room for anything else.

Below is the card I made for the challenge that ended last week. It was a very nice CAS sketch challenge, just what I like and yes, there is that darn leprechaun stamp again. It's the only St Paddy's day image stamp I've got, so "sorry."
|Image Stamp is by Inkadinkadoo, sentiment stamp is by Studio G, and the embossing folder, which you can barely see, is by Lifestyle Crafts (formerly Quickutz)|
|Here's just a little sneak peak of some of the Flip stamps by Repeat Impressions. More about these to come later.|
Until then, wishing you....
