Great Impression: Use Your Favorite Stamp{s}!


Hey, chickies!  It's time for another monthly challenge at Great Impressions, and I'm here to share a card using some of my FAVORITE Great Impressions stamps!  That's our challenge--USE YOUR FAVORITE STAMP!  Take a peek at my card...


This little gal is G524 Birdie With Kite.  I created a fun scene with by watercoloring my bird and then repeatedly stamping G426 Whimsical Cloud to make her look like she is soaring through the sky.


The sentiment, C480 Hey Chickie, seemed the perfect choice for this card!  I stamped it, cut it into a banner, then matted it with black cardstock.


I decided to add a resin flower with some punched leaves to add a bit more color and interest to my card.  I think it was a good choice. ;)


I then added my focal panel to a card base that was gussied up with some houndstooth printed paper.  I kept it black and white so that the colors of the bird and flower would POP.  I really thing this is pretty cute, aside from my poor watercoloring skills. ;)  What do you think?  I'd love for you to let me know in the comments below!


That's all for me today, friends.  THANK YOU so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card!  I hope you come and join our monthly challenge!  If you use a stamp from the Great Impressions online store, please link it up in our Customer Gallery, too!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)

I just got this stamp a couple of weeks ago - and she is so cute. Love the way you used her with the Hey Chickie sentiment and love the watercoloring.
