Repeat Impressions What if Wednesday (WIW) Sketch M2311

This is my second post for today.  For the Blast From the Past Blog Hop and Flutter By Wednesday, scroll down or click here.

This week's Repeat Impressions What if Wednesday is a sketch challenge.  Here is the sketch that Wendy provided us.

Here is my take on the sketch:

I didn't notice that the top right rhinestone was out of alignment until I posted the picture!  I used the Iris Window (919-I) image and colored it with water color pencils and an aquabrush.  I cut it out with my square Lacy Nestabilities.  I used my circle Lacy Nestabilities and a classic circle together to cut out the round frames (trying to keep the amount of layers to a minimum).  I finished the card off with a ribbon and green rhinestones.
Now it is your turn - create a new card inspired by this sketch, and link it directly to InLinkz on the RI blog, The House That Stamps Built for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions.  If you use RI stamps you'll be entered twice.  Check out the RI blog for more inspiration from the other Rock stars!
Thanks for coming by!

  3. LOVE the way you used your lacy circle brings the focus right to the iris! BEAUTIFUL card!

  4. I love the way you did the Lacy Circles behind the Lacy Square! Very pretty card!

  5. I have only a limited time to read all my emails and pack again, but I just had to say- wow! I just love this card and when I have time, I am going to try to figure out how you made the lacey circles frame- just too cool!

  6. Simply gorgeous!! I love the lacy scallops! Beautifully done!

  7. Lovely card, Harriet. I love that color scheme and you've colored the irises beautifully!
