Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Shades of Fall

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project using autumn colors.

I wanted to test out my new Kemper Spatter Brush so I used it to create this inky background for an inlaid scene. You can see how I made the background in the video below! Really easy and fun.

The background has a fine shimmer over it, from a layer of copper and bronze PanPastels. I used Turquoise Inka Gold on the bird die cut.

Impression Obsession products I used: Bird Die set, Leafy Branch Die, Spring Medley clear set

  1. clever idea with the pan pastel. makes a lovely sparkle.

  2. Beautiful background, and card. I will probably never try this technique, but I love drooling over designer's card with that technique.

  3. Beautiful card, love the spatter technique.

  4. Thanks Dina....I have that little tool but have not used it YET...thanks to your little video, I will certainly give it a try!

  5. Beautiful inlaid scene. Love the rich orange background. I must watch your video for the spatter tool technique. The only time I ever used mine I got covered in speckles of paint - luckily it was only watercolour!

  6. Such a beautiful background and bird. I love the die cut.
