Greetings! Welcome to the Winter Hugs Release Hop at Impression-Obsession. Would you like to win a $10 Impression-Obsession gift certificate? I have one to give away today! Just leave a comment below with your favorite stamp from this release...that's it. You have until Saturday, December 16th, at noon CT. The winner will be announced December 17th.
Now, on to my project for today.....
Impression-Obsession stamps and dies used:
VALENTINE BUN E13729
MY FAVORITE A13740
For my card front, I stamped the Valentine Bun onto white bristol smooth card stock, and colored it with distress inks, using them as watercolor. I added some colored pencil details for shading and highlights with my Polychromos colored pencils.
I used the 'YOU' from a previous stamp set, Life Stuff Sentiments CL491. Then added the die cut LOVE - DIE271-D. Before adding the die, I brushed some distress inks on in ombre' fashion, and layered the die four times for added dimension. I die cut several hearts from various sets, including the center of this die, and colored and added them.
I added a couple of strips of patterned paper to bring in more gray and balance the composition.
And on the inside....
I hope you are inspired by my card today.
All of the new stamps are available NOW! You can find them HERE.
