Impression Obsession - Daisies in Remembrance

It is Memorial Day here in the US - a day in which we remember those who fought and died while serving in the armed forces. I would like to say thank you to our military and those who have served and their families for their sacrifices to protect our freedom.

For my card I wanted something cheerful and I wanted to try my hand again at no line coloring with yellows. I hate yellow Copics - sorry I just do. So I signed up/purchased for Amy Shulke's Vanilla Arts, Co Livestreams and have immersed myself in a few of her streams using yellow. I still need to practice but this is a huge improvement over that dahlia from a couple of weeks ago lol!!!! Oh that was watercolor paint and here I am blaming the Copics. Let's just say yellow gives me fits but is so very cheerful. Anyway I am really enjoying the classes a lot and dying to get some homework done!

I stamped Daisies cling stamp onto Copic X-pressit blending card stock using My Favorite Things Cement one of my fav greys for no line coloring (means I can see it lol). I then used a color combination from Amy Shulke with 1 substitution - Y11, Y15, Y35, YG01. I then added some shading with Prismacolor Greyed Lavendar and Caran D'Ache Luminance Burnt Sienna. I used B000, B23 and B24 and the colorless blender to give a watercolor effect to the background.

For the background panel I used my embossing mat in my Gemini Junior with the Checkered Frames die set. With my Picket Fence Studios Life Changing Blender Brushes I dusted on some Impression Obsession Sky Blue hybrid ink - gorgeous color.

I die cut the image out with Whimsical Scalloped Tag and added the white heat embossed sentiment strip. I popped up the tag onto the background with some foam tape.

So head on over to the IO Blog to see what the rest of the team has cooked up. I know there will be some beautiful cards there - always are!

  1. Loved your coloring.. these daisies looks realistic..

    1. Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem. His email: {} you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or any other Case.
