CHA Sneak Peeks 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 our designers' posts throughout the week for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate daily from Impression Obsession!

Today, there are two prizes up for grabs!! One will be for Friday’s comments, and another will be chosen from all the comments left throughout the week. So if you missed a day or time deadline don't worry - your comments will still count for a chance to win. Both Friday winners will be announced on the IO Blog on Saturday



My card today also fits today's Mix-Ability challenge over at Splitcoaststampers - Anna is challenging us to mix up markers and pencils. I colored these Macarons using Touch Twin Markers and then shaded with a dark grey pastel pencil.


I wanted a big stack of macarons, so I masked and repeated the image up the side of my panel, then added a few single cookies to one side. These are the stamps I used:

Macaron Stack
Macaron

These were so much fun to color. The power was out at the time, so most of my coloring was done in the dark, with deeper details added when the lights came back on!


These are the Touch Twin Markers I used:
