RI SOTW - Jester

Happy Labor Day!  It's time for another Stamp of the Week from Repeat Impressions and this week's stamp is called Jester (#714-G).  This seems like an appropriate image for the Labor Day holiday, doesn't it?!  That's pretty much how I feel to have a long weekend!

I've paired him up with the Happy Everything sentiment, also from Repeat Impressions.  He reminds me of the Joker in a deck of cards, so I went with the red, black and white color scheme.  I paper pieced his costume using the red and white polka dot paper and for his color and the poms on his shoes, I used some Ranger Enamel Accents to give some shine and dimension.  His hat was colored with a gold paint pen.

I used my new Nestabilities Labels Twelve die to cut out the image panel and then layered him on some red and white grid paper and then a layer of white card stock.  I placed some black crystals in the corners, and on the white layers I added some dots and faux stitching.  The dots on the sentiment panel were made using a red Spica glitter pen and the black dots and stitches were made using a Copic Multiliner.

That's about it!  Be sure to check out the great cards the rest of the team has made using this stamp over at The House that Stamps Built.  While you're there, read Wendy's story about this stamp and how she and Bill got started.  She also tells you how you can get this fun image for 50% off.

Hope you're enjoying the holiday weekend!  We are having fantastic fall-like weather here in Atlanta!

Thanks for stopping by!
