{ Impression Obsession DT challenge – Celebrate You }

Hello and happy Thursday. It’s that time again, Impression Obsession DT challenge. This was a really fun to make and I really like to watercolor and need to do it more often. There are several butterflies I have in my collection and I couldn’t decide which one to use. I usually stamp everything in black ink and today I decided to use white embossing powder, on watercolor paper.

I started by stamping and heat embossing Circle Fusion 1 on watercolor cardstock. I always keep an eye out when Michaels has them on sale, and on sale I mean 3 for the price of 1. That is an awesome deal. I used my Caran d'Ache Classic Neocolor II Water-Soluble Pastels and colored the background. I use my heat gun to dry each color before adding a different one.

I love layering different elements together and instead of cutting up different pieces of Patterned paper I stamped various banners and washi. I recently cleaned and organized my room and all my stamps. I am still working on cataloging everything. That might take a while. The point is, I can find everything I am looking for. While organizing I found some loved and forgotten stamps.
On top of the washi and banner I heat embossed a little polaroid frame. I cut the butterfly out and added it to the card using 3D foam squares. The gold striped vellum is from a little vellum pack that I got long time ago that I love!!! I have been adding it everything.
