Impression Obsession Spring Release Day 5


Welcome to the Impression Obsession Spring Release Celebration!

Today both florals and critters for me!!! I truly had fun making both of these cards. But first read below:
  • The Impression Obsession Spring Release Celebration starts today and goes all week long (January 7th-11th). Every day you can find a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog at 6am. Every single blog will have a $25 gift certificate to give away for the event - so the more you comment through the week the more chances to win! All comments for all of the event days will be open until Sunday January 13th at noon CT. All winner will be announced on Monday January 14th.


    All of the new stamps are available now! You can find them HERE.
My first card uses the new Petunia Sprig floral. I stamped this in Versafine Onyx Black ink onto Arches Cold Press 140 lb watercolor paper and used my various watercolors to color it in. I then side die cut an oval from some oatmeal card stock. I mounted the watercolor panel onto the card front with foam adhesive and added some clear droplets.


For my next card, I used an older stamp set - THIS - paired with our new Birdie image. I created a Distress Oxide background using my blender brushes with Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry. I then splattered this with water and Shimmer Spray. I stamped the sentiments with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I stamped Birdie onto Neenah Solar White 80 lb card stock and colored it in with various shades of yellow Copics and YR27. I did add some colored pencil detail lines. I then filled in the THIS with clear Wink of Stella and Nuvo Deluxe Glaze. 


Thank you for stopping by! Please leave a comment to enter the contest for the $25 gift certificate I have to give away!!!
