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!


One last card, with a sweet image for Mother's Day - I loved the sentiment of this collaged scene, especially since my kids are past this stage. The image itself didn't need much color - I just added some watered down Distress ink to add some color impressions there.


For the background, I used Versamagic chalk inks to ink up some new stamps from Julie Balzer made in her handcarved style. These are great little sets with lots of possibilities for backgrounds and mixed media - I'm not done with them! So fun.


Stamps I used: F13281 Bedtime, Hand Carved Elements
