Impression Obsession: Old is New Day

Today over at the IO Blog we are featuring some of our older stamps.  I wanted to showcase this stamp in an up-to-date way because I just love it. We all have loads of stamps in our craft rooms that could use a little tweak to make the design on trend.

This IO stamp is actually a collage stamp - I adore them and have many that are -umm -15 years old or more! Instead of leaving it as just one layer, I cut out the main part of the image after I colored it in and put it on my own background. I used some Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide to make a background with a stencil and then added splatters of Sheer Shimmer and gold spray.

As I was using a no line coloring technique - I stamped the image with IO Stamps Fog Hybrid Ink using my MISTI.

Pink daisies: RV10, RV11, RV13, RV14, RV02, R56, RV69, RV99 and 100 and YR0000
Leaves: G40, G43, G46, G29, BG53, YR0000
Frog: YG11, YG13, YG17, YG03, YG63, YG67 and 100 and B53 for his eyes
