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 we like to feature them regularly. We hope you're inspired! 

I've got a beach theme on the brain this weekend - it's probably a sign that I need a vacation! I picked out an older catalog sample from 2017 - this Sea Horse is one of Tara Caldwell's designs, but there are a few to choose from in our catalog HERE

Here's a closer look at the image - it is colored with Copics and dye inks on Canva-Paper - the surface of this paper is so great for mixing mediums - see there in the background where I lifted out the dye ink after splattering in a little water? Love that. My background panel is a gel print and I used a variety of circle dies to create those bubbles.

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

Thanks for stopping by!
