Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Come On Over

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a an invitation of any kind. I'm loving the little glimpses of fall around here, so I decided to make an invitation to a fall gathering.

I used my Maple layering set for the leaves - this is a 4-step layering set, and I used Peach, Canary, Orange, and Sienna IO Hybrid inks for the layers.

A tip for this - I have 4 leaves on my card, but I only had to set my stamps up twice. For the first impression I positioned my card in the lower right corner...

and for the second impression I positioned my card in the upper right corner. Hope that make sense! I did the 1st and 3rd leaves together, and then the 2nd and 4th. When all the layers were stamped, I added some shadows with Copic markers (W1 and W3).

I also used the MISTI to position my sentiment just perfectly - love how it tucked into the open area there.

Stamps I used: Maple clear set, Splatter 1, You're Invited
