Impression Obsession - All About the Dies - Day 3

This week the Impression Obsession designers have been sharing lots of ideas for using the newest release of 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!

A few weeks ago I shared a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers called Colored Glitter Inlay - I made this panel using that technique. It's a fun one! The technique is done using clear microfine glitter and alcohol markers. I used Chameleon Markers on the leaves here for a subtle gradient, and Touch Twin Markers for the brown base.


I chose not to apply glitter to the white areas, so they would stand out from the glitter. I tamped an Embossing Buddy onto those areas to take away the 'stick' of the adhesive paper. The ribbon I used is from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.


I.O. products used: Maya, Open Scroll Leaf

Just for fun... this card was inspired by an Olive Garden commercial!
