It's time for our Wednesday challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week's challenge is a favorite of everyone - Anything Goes! Since Independence Day is right around the corner (here in the USA) I decided to create something patriotic for this week.

To create this card I:
  • Dropped Ultramarine Blue and Alizarian Crimson Color Burst (Ken Oliver) onto Watercolor Paper
  • I spritzed it with water and heat set it
    • I re-wet it a couple times to get the color intensity I was wanting 
  •  I stamped the 9014-M, Fireworks stamp in Versamark watermark ink, added silver tinsel embossing powder, and heat set
  • After matting it on red and blue card stock I added a sentiment from the Phrases die set (Spellbinders)
  • To finish off the card I create three little pinwheels with pearl centers 

  • For my blog readers: Enjoy the 10% discount code to the Repeat Impressions Store posted on the sidebar
  • There's a new challenge every week over at  The House That Stamps Built 
    • you don't have to use Repeat Impressions stamps to link or win
  • One lucky person will win a $25 Repeat Impressions Gift Certificate on the first Wednesday of every month
