Impression Obsession - Old is New

With such a huge collection of wonderful stamps from so many artists, sometimes the older stamps in the Impression Obsession catalog find their way out of the spotlight. We don't want them to be forgotten, so from now on you'll be seeing our team feature them regularly. We hope you're inspired!

I chose a couple of stamps that are old and new - part of the Serendipity Stamps line that was recently acquired by IO. I stamped the Winter Doe image in dye ink, and then used a wet brush to blend some of the forest areas and add shadows below. Here's the full image:

Winter Doe
SS-297-H Winter Doe

I love the orientation and size of this stamp - it's 4-3/4" wide, so it's wide enough to go either direction - perfect for a vertical one-layer CAS card or on a horizontal panel of a layered card. This sentiment is one of my all-time favorite quotes too:

All Shall Be Well
SS-1349-F All Shall Be Well

For the base panel, I used this newer Cover-A-Card from my line - it's a great one for adding wood texture to cardstock, tone on tone. I love it!

I love this card design and it was easy to complete - I'd consider using this stamp for one-layer winter cards - so easy to do, and any color would work!
