Impression Obsession May Red Rubber Kit

The design team is sharing projects today using this month's stamp kit from Impression Obsession! This kit will be available through May-June, and features lake and fishing images.

I really enjoyed the process of watercoloring this dock image - I started with a light wash for the water, then layered darker horizontal streaks and reflective colors in as the paint dried.  Some additional highlights were added with a white acrylic paint pen.

I needed a masculine birthday card, so I borrowed a sentiment from a recent release. There are others in the set that relate to fishing and Father's Day!

May 1st & 2nd the Impression Obsession Team will be sharing new projects with the May Limited Edition red rubber stamp set. You can find a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog each day through the event!

Two lucky customers who place an Impression Obsession order during the Limited Edition Set release week  (May 1st– 7th) will be chosen and will have a very special Impression Obsession prize package added to their orders! How fun! (Leave us comments anyway though - I miss hearing from you!)
