My DH has been working crazy hours for a couple months now, and I have been off work and bored! So last night I decided to make some cards with the new Impression Obsession stamps! Their stamps are just gorgeous!!! If you haven't stopped by their site lately....go look here! All the catalogues are at the link, and you can download them.
For the bottom card, I did polished stone background, then stamped the tree with black versafine, then embossed with clear powder. The tree was then coloured in using glaze pens! I had never done that before, and just love the rich look of this card!
The second card done was the 3 windowed flower. Oh I am loving this stamp, and there is so much you could do with it! To start with we stamped the image 3 times, once on cream c/s, once on gold shimmer, then once on vellum. Cut out the windows, leaving the flowers in place, because we had to have something to glue the leaves and primas too. Cut the leaves and foilage at the bottom of the windows out of the gold shimmer. Then used the Vanilla Bean H2O to paint some of the diamonds. Then layered it all together, added ribbon, swarovski crystals and lots of stickles. This card is so stunning in person.
The last card done is with a stamp called The Pond. I just love the colours used and I find this card so striking. I just stamped with black versafine on white shimmer, then embossed with clear powder. Cut out your c/s pieces, embossed the saying, then coloured in the image wtih Tombow Markers. I really love that technique on shimmer, the shimmer still comes thru the marker...looks awesome! Don't know why I always forget to use this technique! Adhered the dragonfly, then all the card pieces together. Then for the fun part....stickles!! This card shimmers and shines like you wouldn't believe.
I hope I caught some of the shimmer and shine in my photos. You can click on any of the pics to see them larger, you can see more detail there. It's a dark, dreary, rainy day here, not the best for photos. But an awesome break from the humidity we have had this week!
Have a great day and thank you for stopping by!
