Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week


The SOTW this week is this beautiful Arbor Fence and it is available at 50% off with a discount code found at Repeat Impression's blog, The House that Stamps Built. I stamped the Arbor Fence in the middle of a pink shape created with a Nestabilities label and sponging, while masking the rest. Then I masked the inside piece and stamped the outside with RI's Genealogy background stamp and sponged the edges with brown ink. I used my Scor-bug and a thin black marker to create a "stitched" edge. And I cut on either side of the pink focal point with my craft knife and added some brown ribbon and brown pearls for the finishing touches.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Crafty Creations.
