June 15, 2016 Photo Inspiration REPEAT IMPRESSIONS

.This week is our PHOTO INSPIRATION week over at The House that Stamps Built - isn't he a charmer???  I had recently gotten a few new stamps from REPEAT IMPRESSIONS and decided to use this guy for my creation this week.  

I made my own wood grain background using Elmer's glue and Ranger distress inks.  Then I decided to use 2411K Pelicans Piling and 3412C Gulls in flight - and the saying Little Fish from Containers
which I thought this guy was looking for the Big fish.  Did a little embellishing with some marine rope and frayed it a bit and then added a tiny shell on the corner.  I think this makes a really cool guy card for just about any occasion.  

Hoping you will create a card using our photo inspiration to enter our challenge over at
The House that Stamps Built.  You don't have to use Repeat Impressions stamps but if you do you will get an added bonus of an additional entry in the random drawing for a $25 Repeat Impressions gift certificate. HINT - take a peek over on my side bar and you will see a 10% discount on Repeat Impressions stamps.  We would love to see you create something.

Now why not go check out my DT team mates and see what they have created.
