The House That Stamps Built Inspiration Photo

Image may contain: flower and outdoor

Inspiration Photo week at The House,  Wendy does an amazing job at picking
the photos, making it easy to create on this week!

I started by blending my background with Distress Oxides: Broken China,
Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Faded Jeans. I then stamped
5704-L, Bamboo with Distress Oxide Peeled paint.  Next I
and colored with Copic markers, fussy cut and attached to my card.  I then 
die cut some flowers from a scrap of pre-colored paper from my stash 
with Tim Holtz flowers.  Looks pretty much like the photo!

I hope you join in with our challenge weekly, you might just be the
lucky winner of the monthly drawing for the $25 Repeat Impression's gift
