Impression Obsession - new products for November!

It's time for a new monthly release from Impression Obsession, and I'm excited to have a few items in this batch! Haven't seen the new products? They're all HERE - go take a peek! I'll wait.

I've got a couple of stencils in this release, and I used both of them on this card... can you see them both? You might recognize the hat from my Winter Fun paper pack - the stencil is 3" x 6" and features the hat and mitten, both with the sections separated so they're easier to block off for different colors or mediums. Here I actually used a pencil to trace the sections of the hat and colored them with colored pencils on the kraft cardstock, then added the pom and trim using modeling paste. 

When that dried, I added more texture marks with a white Tooli-Art pen (acrylic paint pen - I love these!).

Here's where I used the other stencil - rather than a texture medium, I ran this panel through my die cutting machine with a silicone pad to deboss the stencil design. I love the added texture without added bulk.

I used the little mitten on my second card, and here you can see the coordinating paper. I used a torn paper edge to mask the horizon line. I splattered some diluted paint onto the cardstock which caused the raised areas. Those added a little more texture when I brushed on the ink.

I loved the way this sentiment nested when it was repeated, so I tucked this panel inside.
