Repeat Impressions Project of the Week

This week it was my turn to do a Project of the Week at Repeat Impressions.  I saw color blocking on Pinterest and wanted to try it.  Repeat Impressions has several stamps that will make it easy.  They are called "Solids".  Here they are:

 I inked these up with some Tim Holtz Distress inks and randomly stamped them on cardstock.  These inks are rather translucent, so they can be stamped on top of each other which will make interesting color combinations without making a muddy color.  On the first one I stamped the color blocks, then lightly stamped a background stamp called Genealogy over the color blocks, then stamped the image called Spring Blossoms and the Thinking of you sentiment.  I lightly colored with a few copic markers and mounted this onto a piece of orchid cardstock.  FAST, FAST, FAST card.

For the second card I used an art applicator to stamp blocks of color onto my paper then stamped Genealogy,  Monarch Butterfly and Thinking of You, then shaded the butterfly with a few blue copics.
For next one I used the background Genealogy script on the lower part of the card, stamped the Clock Face, Monarch Butterfly, Small Dragonfly, Butterfly Silhouette and the Large Butterfly.
And one last project is a little bookmark.  For this I used Happy Birthday and Wings Positive.

Sorry for such a long post - but as you can probably guess, I really like "color blocking".  Thanks for looking at my Project of the Week - have a happy stamping day.
