Inspiration Photo 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. I find it fascinating to see each stamper’s take on a card based on the same inspiration photo. This is this month’s Inspiration Photo:

Will you be inspired by the colors or the objects or shapes in the photo? 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 colors and objects in the inspiration photo to make the card above. Nowadays, when I want color and artistic impressions I turn to my BB or CB (Brushos, Bisters or Color Burst powders.) I heat embossed Repeat Impression’s Daisies and Butterfly onto watercolor paper and then sprinkled on several blue Brusho Crystal Colours. I spritzed the powders with gold Shimmer Mist which IRL results in the whole card becoming all sparkly. I sprayed the corner of the card front with a gold spray from Heidi Swapp as in the inspiration photo. I stamped the butterfly again on white cardstock, colored in parts of the wings with a black marker and attached with one wing raised by pop dots.

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

What a beautiful card Karen - love the resulting blues in the background, and the touch of gold it stunning.
