Hello there friends. Well the weather is warm and dry, dry, dry here in Cali and we are desperately in need of some rain.
I wish we would get some and that it would be as pretty as the photo inspiration for this week on The House That Stamps Built blog. Take a peek:
For my card, I pulled from the colors and a wee bit on the shape/cluster of the umbrellas.
I started by creating a background using several colors of Distress Inks blended together and then I applied drops of water which react with the inks creating the spots you see on the background. Next, I stamped the Repeat Impressions Hot Air Balloon Cluster #9116-N in Memento Black ink and the RI sentiment Dreams Take Flight 9117-F. For a couple of final touches, I added some gold Irresistible Spray from Tsukineko and a bow.
Be sure to check out each of my fellow Rock Star's blogs and see what they have created using the photo above for their inspiration.
We would love to have you play along with the challenge as well, head on over to The House That Stamps Built for all of the details. Wendy will be giving away an awesome prize to one lucky person who plays along :)
Don't forget, if you are itching to do a little Repeat Impressions' shopping, you will find a 10% off discount code in my right sidebar. Don't forget to use it! You will be glad that you did!
