The House That Stamps Built: Designer Choice Challenge

This is Patti's debut week returning to the Repeat Impressions
design team, and her week to pick the challenge theme,
she chose: Things with Wings: 
I was excited to see this technique of inking up a strip of the card
has returned to popularity.  I used Distress Oxides: broken china,
worn lipstick and shaded lilac and then spritzed with a fine
mist of water.  I then stamped with Repeat Impressions:
I like to stamp my images with Versa Fine Clair black ink
and then emboss with clear embossing powder.
I think this technique makes a simple yet beautiful card.
Why not join in with our challenge weekly, you might just be the
lucky winner of the monthly drawing for the $25 Repeat Impression's gift
certificate. Each entry gets a chance, two if you use a
Repeat Impressions stamp.  My followers get a 10% discount -see
my sidebar.  Drawing is the first Wednesday every month.
For inspiration check out what my teammates have created:

Love your dragonfly card - so pretty and the colors you choose are soft and soothing. Yes just a strip of color is such a nice starting point for a beautiful creation.
