Impression Obsession - All About the Dies - Day 1

For the next 3 days, the Impression Obsession designers will be sharing lots of ideas for using IO dies!   You can visit the I.O. Blog each day of the hop for links to the previews. Make sure to comment for a chance to WIN!


I had fun with this little stork set! The base of my card is a glittered background that I made for an upcoming tutorial. Thought it would be a fun background for my scene, so I framed it in the shaker opening. The stork is cut from watercolor paper, and watercolored with reinkers. I used a Darice embossing folder to add texture to the white panel. I used one of my clear sets, Life Stuff Sentiments, on the banner.
