Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Sending Hugs

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project to express friendship, affirmation, or sympathy. I can't think of a better source of affirmation in my young life than Mr. Rogers! Who wouldn't want a hug from him? I miss that man.

WP915 Fred Said clear set - back in stock!!
L13763 Shoe Background

I started by stamping the Shoe Background tone on tone for my background. This is actually 2 impressions, but I designed the stamp so it could be lined up and stamped repeatedly.

The sentiment and shoes are from the Fred Said clear set, which is back in stock now - thank you for loving that one! The focal panel is watercolored with QoR paints - I used a clear glaze pen on the shoe laces and soles to resist the paint just in those areas - it leaves a glaze and really does a good job keeping those areas white! I also used my favorite stencil (Grunge Dots) with the watercolor to add a little texture to the ground. Or maybe it's shag carpet. Who knows?

It's true!

Be sure to check out the other designers' blogs for inspiration, and 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!

  1. Oh, how sure brings back memories when Mr. Rogers was a favorite of my adult kids now. This is a great design.
