What If Wednesday Sketch Challenge

Happy Wednesday!

It's time for another What If Wednesday Sketch Challenge for Repeat Impressions Stamps!  Today's sketch M1612, was fun to work with.  I chose to use the Under the Sea Image (2423-L) and the In all Things sentiment (4009-G).

Supplies: Bazzill Basics CS, C.C. Cutters Leafy Branch Die, Oval & Oval Scallop Large Spellbinder Dies, Copic Markers, Ribbon from my stash.



I made a shadowbox card.  Dimensions are 7" x 4.25" (cut 2), and you score in at 1/2" and 1" on both sides of each piece.  Simply create your card front, and adhere the sides together.  Simple, and it folds flat for mailing!

The image is actually on the back side, recessed a full inch back, and you are looking through an oval window. You should try a shadowbox - you will love it!

Now, hop on over to the Repeat Impressions Blog, The House That Stamps Built, to see what the other fabulous Rockstars have created with this sketch!

We can't wait to see your take on the sketch!  Hope you will join us - full details on the blog!  You could be the lucky winner of some RI goodness!!!

Hugs,
Patti J.

Love how the whole card looks like it is the sea, and the die cut embellishments look like seaweed, wonderful work Patti!

I saw this IRL and love it - isn't it funny we "forget" some of the first folds we were so impressed with, I'm going to have to make this up for sure. Love the image. I'm loving following The House that Stamps Built.
