CHA DT Blog Hop Week -Day 5

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!
I saved my favorites for last - I adore the large florals in this release, and this one was so fun to color. On the first card I stamped the Gentle Rose twice, and layered them to create dimension. There's a little Ivory Flower Soft in the flower center. The floral panel was stamped with a new background stamp (CR007 Tiny Flowers).

I used the same image on my second card, but stamped it in a very light green ink and painted and shaded one petal at a time so I didn't lose the lines. I love this effect! The sentiment is called Beautiful Life.

I hope you have enjoyed all our projects this week! Thank you for your comments!
Thanks for stopping by!
