Impression Obsession - Die Cut Obsession

There are so many amazing dies at Impression Obsession - this special Monday feature lets them have the spotlight! We hope you're inspired!

This card was actually inspired by a catalog sample I made for this die when it was released, and you'll see it if you click on either of the links above! It's also a sample for the tutorial I'll be sharing over on Splitcoast on Wednesday. The die is used to impress an outline into watercolor paper, and that outline can be used as a guideline for painting. Just another way to stretch the dies you have!

I colored my panel in with QoR paints, and layered it on a gel printed panel. When I make a batch of thank you tags for Etsy orders, I clean my plate off on a stack of cardstock panels I have set aside. It makes for really random layering and very interesting prints! This one had some beautiful layers and  a really pretty gradient.

The sentiment is one of my designs - I love the narrow design, and these inspiring words!

Be sure to check out the other designers' blogs for inspiration - see the I.O. blog for all the details!

Thanks for stopping by!
