Photo Inspiration Challenge at The House That Stamps Built

So glad you stopped by today!

It's time for a new Photo Inspiration challenge at The House that Stamps Built!

Here is the photo that we were given for inspiration:

Yikes! This was a tough one for me.  The photo is so pretty, but my brain went into an advanced stage of brain lock when I tried to create using this photo as inspiration.

I guess it's why they call it a challenge, right?????

Well, when looking at this photo, I was drawn to the woodgrain and the bird.
Here is what I made today, using this Repeat Impressions Stamps:

The image was stamped onto patterned paper and lightly colored.
It was matted on Kraft, then a yellow card base.
I left the sentiment off, not knowing what occasion this would be used for.

Now, it's your turn!
Come on over and join us in our Photo Inspiration Challenge!  If I
can do it, you can do it!!!

Remember, you don't HAVE to use Repeat Impressions Stamps
but if you do, you have double the chance of winning!
I can't wait to see your beautiful cards using this photo!!!

Check out my sidebar to see how you can save money on your RI orders!

Now, it's time to see what my DT friends have created!

Hope you link up a card this week!

Thanks for stopping by,

Patti J.

Love him - and great take on the photo challenge. Sometimes we do go into brain fade but I am "learning" more how to take the photo challenges.

Yikes indeed. I drew a blank when I saw the inspiration then I scrolled down and saw how you hit the nail on the head. What a terrific idea to create a wood background and using that bird. Way too perfect my friend!

Wow, well you nailed that challenge, that heron image is fab! We have a couple nesting in our local park and they're amazing when you see them fishing in the river.

Gorgeous card, Patti! Love the idea of stamping on DSP. I need to think about what papers and stamps I could use for that technique.
