May 17, 2017 Photo Challenge



I had to think about this one for a little while - did I want to use the colors or did I want to use the picture - so I used both.  It has been a really LONG time since I have done spotlight stamping - so I thought this challenge would be perfect for this technique.  I stamped 10201-W Flower Power twice on white watercolor paper - (didn't yet know what I was going to do), picked out what image I was going to color for the spot light. Used distress inks for my colors, then punched out the circle - and a slightly larger black circle.  Lined up the images and attached it with tape runner.  Then I stamped a sentiment 9717-C A Happy Hello 
and using a smaller punch punched out the sentiment and mounted it on a black circle.  I needed a bit of bling and had room so I used three small yellow pearls.


   Now it is your turn to your turn to make a card using the challenge theme of Tic-Tac-Toe - the possibilities are endless for this challenge so hope to see lots of entries.  
You do not have to use Repeat Impressions stamps but if you do you will be entered twice in the drawing for a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions.  
If you look on my right side bar I also have a discount coupon for you to use when you go shopping at Repeat Impressions.

    
Now - take a look at what our design team has made to get you started.
