The House That Stamps Built: Sketch Challenge

 We have 5 Wednesday's this month so we get a Sketch Challenge from 

                                                                        Image may contain: screen, text that says 'REPEAT IMPRESSIONS Sketch #D3020'

 My take on Wendy's sketch:

I went with a Christmas card featuring Repeat Impressions 
These three gifts, embossed with Pearlescent embossing
powder.  Background is Distress Oxides: cracked
pistachio, worn lipstick, and seedless preserves. 
The colors lightened when I sprayed them with
a glimmer mist for a nice soft look.
Join our weekly challenge, you might just 
be the lucky winner of the monthly drawing for the
 $25 Repeat Impression's  gift certificate. you don't have to use
Repeat Impression stamps but an extra chance if you do.  
Drawing is the first Wednesday every month.

Very pretty - and as I was reading this I thought - "this could be used just about anytime). Love the blending of the oxide inks, great job. Sending wishes for a Happy New Year.

Absolutely beautiful card, my sweet friend. I adore the confectionary worthy hues and how welcome they feel at this dark, chilly time of the year - like a lovely reminder that spring is just a few months off.

Many hugs & the very happiest of wishes for a safe, serene, joy-filled, and abundantly blessed 2021 coming your way!

Unexpected colors for a Christmas card, but so lovely and soothing. Love how you've interpreted the sketch with the blended colorways and then repeated on the mat framing. So pretty. TFS & Happy New Year. Hugs. Mary H.
