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! 
I made this card for last week's tutorial on Splitcoast, demonstrating how to use the color wheel to choose color harmonies... here's the story of how I chose this image. Ha! I usually work from a script to voice over my videos because it's hard for me to work and talk and a voice over gives me more freedom to edit - BUT - with this tutorial it made much more sense to have the color wheel in my hands and talk about its features while showing how to use them. I did 2 videos, and in the second one I showed how to use a resource sheet that's a free download on the tutorial page. I had a desert image next to me that I had stamped to color, and I was thinking it released in August and would be ok to use... then realized it doesn't release until September! I couldn't edit the voice part out, so I did some creative clipping and went to see what other desert image I had to work with... and this was the only other one! So here we are. The image is watercolored using 5 QoR paints. That tutorial is HERE if you're interested in checking it out! (And now you know... the rest of the story!)
