{ Impression Obsession DT challenge – Fall Colors }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – Fall Colors.

Hello and happy Thursday. It’s that time again, Impression Obsession DT challenge. Today I am sharing a card that I created with brand NEW stamps from Impression Obsession. This is from our Fall/Winter 2015 release. It’s will be 106 today here in Texas and it doesn’t feel like fall, but it was fun creating with these fall colors.

Here is my card.

Thank you by Daniela Dobson

I have these watercolors in tubes that I got at Michaels. I added two colors, orange and yellow and used my pallete knife to spread the color down the front of the card. Then I added brown and did the same thing. The color in the tubes is pretty dry and I didn’t add water so it was great consistency for spreading the color. I muted the colors just a bit by adding white Gesso over the top.

I stamped the diamond border on the bottom with ink. The Instant Photo Frame is die cut from patterned paper. I stamped and fussy cut all the other elements. I splattered yellow and orange color shine at the end after I added the sequins and the twine bow.

Thank you close by Daniela Dobson
