Impression Obsession June Release

Welcome to Day 3 of Impression Obsession's June release hop! It's been a few months since IO had a release, so this is exciting! There is a fun summery mix of new designs and rebooted favorites that I think you'll really like. You'll find another new project on Jeanne's blog today, and a full list of all the team posts on the IO Blog

I'm excited to share that my Timeless Classic clear set is one of the featured sets this month! I spent some time at a car show last weekend (our small town's summer festival) and enjoyed visiting with some of the owners and remembering the car shows my dad would take us to growing up. This set is one that reminds me of my dad quite a lot, and it's full of sentiments for dads as well. I colored the image with Karin markers (love them! use code DINA15 at that link for 15% off) on regular cardstock, then shaded with colored pencils for more depth.

Here are all my card parts before I put the card together - I wanted you to see the background before it got covered up! I stamped Cover-a-Card Grunge in black Versafine Clair ink, then dusted it with a little copper embossing powder for a spotty rust effect. When that cooled I spritzed the panel with water and embossed with Verdigris powder then brushed a little brown ink here and there. I don't want you to forget that IO still offers hundreds of AMAZING background stamps  in red rubber - this is an older one that is just so cool for roughing up a background.


We will be giving away THREE Impression Obsession $25 gift certificates next week - be sure to leave a comment here and check the IO blog for more team posts so you can leave as many comments as possible - each comment gives you a chance to win new IO goodies!
