CHA Sneak Peeks Day 2

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!


Part of my new release is a art collection - lots of vintage art supplies, brush strokes and paint splatters. There are so many possibilities for these, and they're so much fun to play with! The brush strokes especially make great backgrounds for sentiments and sillhouette images.


On these cards I used Aquamarkers to color the brush strokes, then spritzed with water to allow some blending of the colors for stamping.


The markers stayed really vibrant, and I love that. The brushes and paint tubes were stamped,  then shaded with watercolors to give them more dimension. Just a simple line of grey down one side really made them pop off the panel.


Stamps I used: Filbert Brushes, Paint Tubes, Splat 1, Brushstroke 3, Watercolor Wash, Expect Miracles, Live Life

Be sure to check out these other designers' blogs for inspiration, and comment for more chances to win!
