Impression Obsession Old Is New- Embossed Mum Square

It's Old Is New Day at Impression Obsession.  Today we have chosen older stamps from the IO line to use on our projects.
IO Stamps I am using:
Here is how I made my card:
  • I created a background on watercolor paper with distress inks.  I used the smoosh method to add color to a craft mat, then dabbed the panel of watercolor paper onto the mat.  I repeated with varying colors until I achieved the coverage I wanted.
  • When this panel was dry, I embossed the Mum Square onto the background with black embossing powder.  
  • I added the block to an eggplant A2 card front.  I used a leftover strip of the panel to add a bit of interest to the left edge of the card.
INSIDE:  I stamped the Grateful Heart image with dusty concord distress ink onto a panel, distressed the edges, and added it to the inside of the card.  I added another strip of the background from the front.
You can find the other designer's Old Is New projects from the IO blog post HERE.
We will be back tomorrow with the new Impression Obsession challenge for October.  It's a fun one, you won't want to miss.  Hope to see you there.
Thank you for stopping by today.  I appreciate your comments.
