Anything Goes at Repeat Impressions!


When there are 5 Wednesdays in a month, the fifth What If? Wednesday challenge at Repeat Impression's blog is Anything Goes! So you could enter any card or project in our challenge for a chance to win awesome RI Rubber! I have been experimenting with the Mixed Media look in my cards and this is what I came up with for this challenge. I started with a piece of watercolor paper that I embossed Repeat Impression's fireworks stamps on with clear embossing powder as a resist. Then I sprinkled on aqua, orange and ostwalt blue Brusho Coloured Crystals and spritzed with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist for a colorful sparkly background. I stamped randomly with a script stamp from Repeat Impressions and splattered on some black dots made with black Bister powders and water. I stamped a couple RI butterflies on another Brusho piece, cut out and attached with mounting tape to raise. I added a couple pearls on each butterfly.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Love to Scrap! and Crafting From the Heart.

This card turned out very pretty. I may have to check out that fireworks stamp, looks very versatile. Kind of looks like dandelion heads here.

What a wonderful result with the brushos and resist - the butterflies are gorgeous too, and overall this is one impressive card, kaen.

This is beautiful!! The fireworks mixed with the butterflies look like dandelions. Such a great way to stretch the use of the stamps. Fabulous background, too. Thanks for playing with LTSCB.
