{ Impression Obsession DT challenge - These are a few of my favorite things....}

Hello and welcome to another Impression Obsession DT challenge. We have challenges every other week - DETAILS HERE - if you play you could win a $25 gift certificate to the Impression Obsession store.

My Favorite Things, from The Sound of Music (words to the song at the end of my post). I looked at all the stuff that I had and one stamp was perfect for the challenge - Gift of Love CL137 - brown paper packages tied up with strings. The song makes me happy so I used all my favorite colors together.
 I stamped the background with Cover-a-card Snowflakes CC066 using VersaMark and clear embossing powder with glitter (hard to see in the photo). I sprayed the background with Shimmerz Vibez Spritz.
The lace circle die cut is from Laina Lamb digital kit. I used my Cricut Expression to cut it out, the size that I want!!! I used my SCAL and Cricut to cut the borders, as well.

I colored the image with watercolors. I have this Watercolor Wheel Stack Pack by Koh-I-Noor that I love. The colors are really bright. I added Stickles to the tree. The sentiment is from Holiday Borders CL137.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad.

I hope you'll take the time to visit the other designers' blogs for inspiration! Jenny, Dina, Laura, Julie, Jeanne, Kathy and Deborah.
