What If? Wed. Photo Inspiration Challenge


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. Here is the photo chosen to inspire us this month: 


Will you be inspired by the colors or the 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 was inspired by the reflection image and colors of this beautiful photograph. I heat embossed Repeat Impression’s cattails stamp several times above and below the horizon line I created with a Versamark pen and some more black embossing powder. Then I sprinkled and spritzed the sunset colors with a watercolor powder. I layered that piece on an A2 card base. I stamped the inspirational sentiment on a white side piece and added a couple birds die cut out of a scrap of the same colored watercolor paper.

 I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at Crafting from the Heart,  Craft Your Passion, and the Take a Stamp Anything Goes challenge at Craft Stamper Magazine.

Karen this is a wonderful sunset, and the sentiment panel on the side is perfect.
