{ Impression Obsession DT Challenge–It’s a Man’s World }

Hi and welcome to another Impression Obsession challenge.
Our next challenge, "It’s A Man’s World", starts today, August 2, and continues to the following Wednesday evening, August 8, at 10 PM.

Create a new card using  Impression Obsession stamps and post it on Impression Obsession Blog, between August 2 - 8. A winner will be chosen randomly to win a $25 gift certificate to the Impression Obsession store.

Here is my card.

I made a baby boy card. The bottom of the card is stamped with CAC Thin Chevron stamp. The little boat was created in my Silhouette Studio. Once the pieces were cut out I stamped the sails with CAC Screen and the boat with CAC Small Dots. I used ColorBox Mint Pigment ink to color the base. The image looks like it was stamped. Next time I will add a little white border. There is a pole with a flag that goes with the sail boat, but I thought this star pin was a perfect substitute.

The circles with the stars were created in my Silhouette Studio. It’s a long border, but for this card I only used two. I colored the white cardstock with ColorBox Mint Pigment ink and stamped over that with CAC Screen using Charcoal Fluid Chalk Ink. I added brads to the centers of the stars.

I adore this Swirl Lower alphabet set…there is a Swirl Upper set, that is just as awesome. I cut the letters out and inked the edges with Toffee Fluid Chalk ink. I used the bracket shape from Journaling I stamp set. “Sweet” is from Juicy Words and is stamped on a Martha Stewart label.
