Impression Obsession CHA sneak peek

The Impression Obsession team is showcasing some new images being introduced this week at CHA! You can visit the I.O. Blog each day this week for links to the previews. Be sure to leave a comment on each designer's posts throughout the week for a chance to win a gift certificate to I.O! Today is the final day!!

I saved one of my favorites for last... this is one of Gary Robertson's designs called Coffee Scene - I love coffee stamps, and this one has so much going on! I colored the background with Touch Twin markers, then masked some spots and highlights with a Sakura glaze pen and used reinkers and Inktense pencils to color in the images. I stamped the card base with Cover-a-Card Scratches using Brilliance Pearlescent Ice Blue ink, then scored it 'lattice' style with my Scor-pal. Not sure what inspired the bold color combo!

That's it for our blog hop posting - if you've left comments on all the designers' blog posts throughout the last week, and reported in daily at the I.O. blog, you're qualified for our gift certificate prize - good luck!

Thanks for stopping by!

Love the bold colors as much as I love Gary's images! I love how you scored the background after you used the Cover-a-Card Scratches image! WHy can't I think of things like this? Pat yourself on the back for me for a job well done!

  24. I feel awake and energized just looking at this FABULOUS card! You have gotten me completely addicted to Cover-a-Card stamping. Now, being a HUGE fan of coffee images as well, I have added this must-have image to my wishlist! Your coloring of it is so amazing, I'll be headed back here once I get the stamp for coloring inspiration!
