New Spring Stamps from IO - Day 2

The Impression Obsession team is showcasing new Spring images that are available NOW! You can visit the I.O. Blog all this week for links to the previews and ALL the challenge details. Leave a comment on our designers' posts throughout the week for a chance to win a $25 gift certificates from Impression Obsession!



I'm super fond of this collection of snails, as well as the mushrooms - if you click over to my stamp line you'll find some cool sketchy bugs too! The snails are available in red rubber as well as in a clear set (flipped and smaller in size) with some mix and match words:

Happy Trails clear set
All my samples are done on Canva-Paper, and colored with a combination of Copic markers and watercolor.


The stone wall background can also be a stone pathway... I used it as a background for a wild animal card as well.


In this last sample, my snail has a glittery trail - it doesn't show up well here but it's so cute in person!

Stamps I used: Down Snail, Up Snail, Side Snail, Mushroom, Slow Down, CAC Stone Wall
