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 we like to feature them regularly. We hope you're inspired! 

This was one of my favorite stamps from my 2018 release - it reminds me of those nature walks we used to take as kids, collecting a little of this and that to bring home for fall crafts or inspiration. I used CanvaPaper here so I could do some coloring with Copics and some with watercolor.  The string is 'hanging' on a couple of copper brads... when was the last time you pulled out mini brads for a card? Hm?

Here's a closer look at the coloring, and you can also see where I've cut around the edges of a few of the leaves to shape and pop them up for more dimension. It's one of my favorite things to do on an image like this! You can use a stylus or the handle of a paintbrush to add lines or a curve as well. I've got a tutorial for that technique HERE.

Stamps I used: 

Remember that IO still has  grab bags of unmounted stamps! For just $5 you'll receive a bundle of "dozens" of unmounted rubber stamps!
