{ Impression Obsession DT challenge–Beautiful Stamped Backgrounds }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – Beautiful stamped backgrounds!

Our challenge starts today, September 4, and continues to the following Wednesday evening, September 10, at 10 PM.

Create a new project using  Impression Obsession stamps and post it on Impression Obsession Blog, between September 4 - 10. A winner will be chosen randomly to win a $25 gift certificate to the Impression Obsession store.

Here is my card.

While I was thinking about what to do for this challenge I remembered this awesome Cover-a-card background stamp called Cover-a-Card Ornate Floral.

Thanks so much by Daniela Dobson

I wasn’t sure how it was going to look stamped in black ink, but I was going to give it a try.

I colored the white parts with my watercolor paints.

For the sentiment, I used one of the brand new dies Greetings Top Edgers. I die cut it from black glitter paper. I layered it over a piece of white cardstock covered with washi tape. As a final touch I added enamel dots to the flowers.
What do you think?

Thanks so much close by Daniela Dobson
