Impression Obsession - August Team Favorites

The IO Team is back today to share a favorite card from this month's release, so here's mine! Head over to the Impression Obsession Blog for all the links so you don't miss anything. All the newest releases can be found HERE.

I felt like playing with texture on this card, so I took a little modeling paste and mixed it with ink to stencil the blossoms and stems of the poppies here. (HERE is a tutorial from Splitcoaststampers on this technique - I truly don't remember what medium I used to mix the color in but just about anything will work... markers, powders, inks, reinkers or acrylic paint, mixed in with a palette knife.) Once the texture paste was dry I did a little smooshing for the background, and then cut the panel to size for my card (this one is 3.5" x 5.5") and used one of the new edger dies for a curved cut.
