{ Impression Obsession DT challenge – Oldie but a Goodie with a video }

Hi and welcome to another Impression Obsession challenge.

Our next challenge, "Oldie but a Goodie", starts today, January 19, and continues to the following Wednesday evening, January 25, at 10 PM. If you would like a chance to win free stamps, get busy out there, then post creation at the bottom of the post on Impression Obsession Blog, between January 19 - 25, using Inlinkz.

Here is my card.

I used some really old stamps. The Wired Birdcage I had for a long time, but I love it and use it. The Cover-a-Card Wallpaper rubber stamp is so pretty. I used new ColorBox Scentz Embossing Powder: Lemonade to heat emboss the background on the tag. The embossing powder really smells like Lemonade and it lasts up to 2 weeks after embossing.

I have a video below to show you how I made the card, if you are interested in seeing my process. It did take me 25 minutes to complete this card, but don’t worry, I made this one super fast. I hope you like it.

I added watercolor crayons to the cage and then glitter on top of that. The butterflies are stamped with ColorBox Mix’d Media Inx: Chiffon and heat embossed using the same color embossing powder. The Butterfly Bliss stamp set is one of my first sets from Impression Obsession.

The Mix’d Media Inx stay wet for a long time and the embossing powder sticks really well.

I hope you'll take the time to visit the other designer's blogs for inspiration!
