CHA Sneak Peeks Day 1

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!



My new release has a fun set of coffee and tea themed images, so I'll share a couple of those cards today! I made a matching set of 2 cards using a favorite print done with my Gelli Plate. The images are stamped with Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink onto clay-coated cardstock, then flicked with rubbing alcohol.


I stamped some of the other new designs into the background - here's a close up where you can see those images a little better.


I added some shading and highlighting to this silhouette image with Touch Twin Markers as well.


I used the same techniques and the other side of the background panel for the second card. The pendant is made with a decorative head pin and some glass beads.


Stamps I used: Steam Flourish, Grinder, Coffee Ring, Coffee Pot, Coffee Mug, Coffee Beans
