Impression Obsession DT Challenge: An Oldie But a Goodie

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a card using older I.O. stamps. We're also celebrating our DT coordinator Kelli's birthday! Happy birthday, Kelli!!

I watercolored this image (Butterfly with Daffodils) when we were still overseas, using reinkers that have a tiny bit of Shimmerz paint mixed in. I'm giving you a sneak peek at a new background stamp in a new size (CR008), and a new sentiment (D8685 Forever) too!!

Be sure to check out these other designers' blogs for inspiration -

Daniela @ For the First Time
Jeanne @ Inky Paws
Jenny @ One Krafty Kat
Julie @ Out to Impress
Laura @ Laura's Stamp Art Journal
Vicki @ Summerthyme Studio

Remember you can enter these challenges too, using your Impression Obsession stamps! See the I.O. blog for all the details - you might even win a $25 gift certificate!! We'd love to have you join us.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Beautiful card, Dina. Your watercolored image is divine! Can't wait to see the new background - thanks for sharing!

  2. This is beautiful Dina, gorgeous warm colors.

  3. Sooo pretty! It makes me feel all warm and cozy inside:)

  4. Dina, this card is beautiful. So warm and inviting. I'd love to know how you made your ink.

  5. Dina, what magnificent coloring - your card looks like a watercolor masterpiece which should be hanging on my wall! The sentiment is gorgeous. I HAVE to have that sentiment, making note of it right now. I wonder if it comes in a set? Thank you for sharing a fabulous card! PS the monarch looks just like the ones which thrive from Spring until the first frost here in Florida.

  6. Gorgeous. The coloring is just beautiful.

  7. Gorgeous. Your coloring is just beautiful.
