Photo Inspiration Challenge at Repeat Impressions


On the third Wednesday of every month at Repeat Impression’s blog, The House that Stamps Built, the challenge is going to be an Inspiration Photo challenge. The Rock Stars vote on their favorite photo each month for our inspiration and this month there was a tie. Here are the two photos you can use for your inspiration when you make a card for this challenge:



Will you be inspired by the colors or the objects or shapes in the photos? It is up to you to pick out what inspires you and make a card, then enter it for a chance to win some great Repeat Impressions rubber. Be sure to check out the RI blog for the inspiration based cards by the other Rock Stars. I have seen them and you do not want to miss them!

I love RI’s hot air balloons and it would have been easy to make a patriotic card with them. But I decided to challenge myself and use the fancy fingernails photo for my inspiration. I started with a fingernail polish cutting file from The Cutting CafĂ©. I cut red stripes in different widths and applied them for a flag look. I stamped Repeat Impression’s stars with Versamark on the blue fingernail polish cover and heat embossed them with a sparkly white embossing powder. I stamped “Goddess in Training” and cut it out with a star die cut.

 I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at Crafting from the Heart and Through the Craft Room Door.
