Impression Obsession On Sale Now Hop!

As we anticipate changes and a new chapter for Impression Obsession, we have some overstocked items that need to move and make room for all the new things! The team will be showcasing some of these closeout clear sets and dies today - be sure to visit all the designers' blogs and especially the SALE section of the website to see what else you might need! If you see something you love, grab it - these closeout sets and dies will not be returning!

This isn't one of my sets, but I have always loved it and there are only a few left! The stamps are designed for repeating patterns and borders, and I love this solid style. I chose the strawberry branch to work with, and set my card panel up in the corner of my MISTI so that I could rotate it, stamping 4 branches into a little wreath. 

I stamped using Versafine Toffee ink, which made a warm neutral-ish base color for the berries and the leaves. I colored over the stamping with colored pencils, then added a few highlights with a paint pen, brushed ink around the wreath in various pinks, then added a light ring of whatever yellow ink was in my blending brush to warm up the center.

I used a battery eraser to remove a few little dots around the wreath - I think you can see some of them above. The sentiment set I used is not in the clearance section, but everything on the site is on sale right now (look for the discount code below) - this was made to coordinate with a berry stamp, so it has a large 'berry' word along with 'sweet', and several small mix-match words that can be used to build a bunch of different sentiments.

My post is part of a blog hop today and tomorrow - each day (April 4-5) you can find a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog, and I have them linked below as well.
