Impression Obsession DT Challenge: You're An Animal

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project with an animal theme. Any animal will do!

This card is actually one of my samples for the Falliday Fest event starting over at Splitcoaststampers on Sunday and it fits several of our challenges (4 maybe?).

My background panel is a sheet of Yupo paper colored with alcohol inks - if you haven't worked with Yupo paper, it's a lot of fun... it's a synthetic paper that allows you to play with the inks and lift and move them around before they dry. I've used it with watercolors too, and the results are just fascinating. The snow is acrylic paint, dotted with a medium stylus.

IO products I used: Deer and Doe die set, Twig Wreath die set, Christmas Lights clear set

Be sure to check out these other designers' blogs for inspiration -

Remember you can enter these challenges too, using your Impression Obsession stamps! See the I.O. blog for all the details - you might even win a $25 gift certificate!! We'd love to have you join us.
Thanks for stopping by!
