Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Falling Leaves

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project with leaves or a fall theme.

This card was a simple one - I lined up 3 tree images by Lindsay Ostrom on watercolor paper, sprinkled them with a little ColorBurst, and then misted lightly with water. I used my brush to fill in some of the lined areas more completely, but otherwise just let the water do its thing. I painted in the trunks of the trees and let that color drip down to create their shadows as well. So fun!

Stamps I used: Striped Tree, Round Tree, Box Tree, Holiday Words set
Be sure to check out these other designers' blogs for inspiration -

Remember you can enter these challenges too, using your Impression Obsession stamps! See the I.O. blog for all the details - you might even win a $25 gift certificate!! We'd love to have you join us.
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love the deceptive feeling of simplicity here. Simple, and yet still so much going on.
