Impression Obsession - more September products

We've got more projects to share from Impression Obsession's newest release! Again, I'm so excited to be able to share these new IO products with you! 
This is another stencil that I designed for IO - the full design has 3 rows of these trees but I blocked off just one for my design here. I used masking tape to isolate the trees, covering up the little star tips with little bits of washi tape. The trees are inked with Distress Oxide inks, then splattered with some dilute gold pigment ink. When that dried I removed the tape and used sharp colored pencils to color the stars and tree pots. 
I made sure my trees would match the striped paper from the new paper pad - this is basically a swatch sheet of the colors in the collection! I had this metal eyelet bar in my stash from 100 years ago, and it was a perfect fit there, so I pulled out the old tools and added it on. 

One more project using the paper pad - I made these earrings using the snowflake paper in the collection! The glass pieces are 12mm across, and these snowflakes were a perfect fit. Another idea for upcoming craft shows! I have a tutorial on SCS here.
