Today the Impression Obsession designers are showing off some new dies - hop along for a peek and a chance to win! You'll find all the details listed at the IO Blog, and a list of designers below. All of the new dies you'll be seeing on the hop are available NOW!
I used 3 new die sets for this card - Patchwork Elephant, the balloon from Patchwork Elements, and a couple of pieces from the Patchwork Sheep. The die cut pieces are cut from watercolor paper and lightly watercolored using Zig Clean Color markers.
Here is a closer look at the sheep parts I used... the larger cloud is a negative cut - that's the sheep's body, and the smaller cloud is his little fluffy head piece. That body piece could be a tree or shrub, and the feet can be little banners, clips, or photo turns! It's fun to think outside the box.
The balloons were watercolored and shaded using the markers. I mixed a couple of colors to make a warm grey and used that to add a some curves in a couple of places to make the balloons look a little transparent. The sentiment is from my Warm Fuzzies clear set - I reach for this set so much!
So off you go -- the hop starts with a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog at 6am EST.
