Impression Obsession Summer Release - Day 2

The Impression Obsession team is showcasing new images for summer!! You can visit the I.O. Blog each day this week for links to the previews. Be sure to leave a comment on each designer's posts throughout the week for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate daily from Impression Obsession!


Father's Day is coming up, and I wanted to include a silhouette image to celebrate fathers - this is actually from a photo of my husband with 2 of our kiddos, so it's special to me. To create the shadows, I stamped the image onto a piece of clear plastic with dye ink, misted it, and laid it down on the panel.


To add to the collection of stamps for Fathers Day and for fathers, the Timeless Classic clear set is now available... some of the stamps are also available in rubber in larger sizes. I always loved going to car shows with my dad, and I'm fascinated at his memory of makes and models from so long ago. Seeing them always reminds me of him. :)


IO Products I used: Father Silhouette, Tapestry Background, Timeless Classic clear set, Mini Circle Tags Die Set

  14. I had to chuckle when you mentioned your dad's memory for car info. My husband amazes me because he's always rattling off the makes and models of cars in TV shows and movies. We watch mostly very old shows and movies and he loves seeing all the older cars.

    Wonderful new silhouette stamp!! You are so lucky that it is actually an image of your own family!!
