RI SOTW - Great Blue Heron



Hi, all!  It's time for another Stamp of the Week from Repeat Impressions.  This week's stamp is this Great Blue Heron (#1704).  What majestic creatures these are!  I think it would be perfect for any kind of masculine card or sympathy card, as well as for Thinking of You (also from Repeat Impressions). 

I colored and airbrushed the main image panel using Copic markers, then paired it with some papers from BasicGrey's Marrakech collection.  The left side of the orange panel was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and I added some pearls to the embossed swirls and the top of the main panel.  Pretty clean and simple for me!

Be sure to stop by The House That Stamps Built to find out how you can get this stamp for 50% off and to see what the rest of the design team made using this stamp!

Thanks for stopping by!
