{ Impression Obsession DT challenge–what is your hobby }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – what is your hobby.
Our challenge starts today, February 21, and continues to the following Wednesday evening, February 27, at 10 PM.
Create a new card using  Impression Obsession stamps and post it on Impression Obsession Blog, between February 21-27. A winner will be chosen randomly to win a $25 gift certificate to the Impression Obsession store.
I have too many hobbies to count, but I wanted to create a page about my new hobby – knitting. I taught myself how to knit, from a book, on our way to Arizona last November.
Here is my layout.
New hobby by Daniela Dobson
I printed two Instagram photos. They are 2.5” and fit perfectly in the frame from Picture Frames CL430 stamp set. I used Herringbone background stamp under the photos. After I inked the stamp I wiped off the edges so I don’t get that sharp, straight edge look. The date is from Months stamp set.

If you love arrows, like me, you will love Arrows CL461 stamp set. If you follow my blog and have a Silhouette Cameo, you might remember these arrows I designed. Well, those arrows are stamps today, thanks to Mitra and Impression Obsession. There are plenty to choose from.
I used You Are Amazing CL424 stamp set to stamp “be yourself” repeatedly down the page. The little hearts are our new Heart Stem Die. Love!!! I added some triangles and a chevron circle from Chevrons CS460 stamp set, that I designed, as well. I added sequins and some color shine across the page.
