Impression Obsession - Old is New

With such a huge collection of wonderful stamps from so many artists, sometimes the older stamps in the Impression Obsession catalog find their way out of the spotlight. We don't want them to be forgotten, so from now on you'll be seeing our team feature them regularly. We hope you're inspired!

K9979 Lovely Soft Roses
D13353 Invincible Summer

This card is actually very similar to the tutorial card I shared last Wednesday - it was a trial run for a tutorial idea that turned out to be too complex for the time I had to work with. Maybe I'll attempt it another time. The roses are watercolored using Qor Modern Watercolors. 

I added a little stenciling around the image - so here's a subtle peek at a not-yet-released stencil from A Colorful Life that's full of small floral patterns - I brushed through the stencil with dye ink and then misted lightly to blend. 

Be sure to check out the other designers' blogs for inspiration - see the I.O. blog for all the details!
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Stunning card, Dina. Love your loose style watercoloring on this flower. The verse fits perfectly with it.

  2. Love that you have a feature of older stamps! It is a breath of fresh air in the NEW NEW NEW stamping culture. This card is beautiful. Love the watercoloring!

  3. Beautiful card and I love the sentiment, too.
