Birdhouse - Repeat Impressions SOTW

Happy Memorial Day!  And happy Monday - time for a new SOTW at Repeat Impressions.  This week's SOTW is Birdhouse (4317-E).  As always, the Repeat Impressions SOTW is offered to the RI blog readers at 50% off for the week.  Go to the RI blog, The House That Stamps Built, to get the details and the link to the stamp.  While you are at the blog, please check out what the other Rock Stars created using this image!
I created this card for today's RI post but also for the SCS Inspiration Challenge.  This week's challenge was to find inspiration at the Plates and Napkins website.  I was inspired by the Lenox Chirp Beverage Paper Napkin.  I started off paper piercing two borders and masked them off with Post-It notes before stamping RI's Humorous Swing Stamp Side 1 stamp a few times and then the Birdhouse.  I also had to mask off the bird when I stamped the lower branch.  I kept the borders masked while I water colored the scene.  I added a 3D K&Co Bee sticker (to cover a smudge!).
Thanks for coming by!
Supplies: Stamps - Repeat Impressions; Paper - PaperTrey; Ink - Versafine Onyx Black; Misc - Water Color Pencils, Aquabrush, Paper Piercer, Piercing template, K&Co 3D Bee Sticker, Post-It Notes, Foam Squares
