CHA Sneak Peeks Day 2


The Impression Obsession team is showcasing some new images being introduced this week at CHA! You can visit the I.O. Blog each day this week for links to the previews. Be sure to leave a comment on our designers' posts throughout the week for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate daily from Impression Obsession!


This is a new lily stamp from Alesa Baker called Loving Lily 2 - I wanted to do some no-line coloring with Inktense Pencils so I stamped the image in Angel Pink Memento ink before coloring. My first step was to color in the stamens with the fine tip of a brush marker, then I masked those areas with a Sakura glaze pen so they would resist my other coloring.


The rest of my watercoloring was done in layers - I love the Inktense pencils, because the permanent ink doesn't move with subsequent layers.
