Going Green

Twice a month the Impression Obsession design team participates in a challenge - this week it's St. Patricks Day/Good Luck/Green cards.

The first card was actually made awhile ago, but it's so perfect for this challenge I figured I'd post it again. It's made with the Clover Tree stamps and was colored with copic markers. The images were cut out with nestie dies and hand doodled along the edges.

For this card I used the Peacock Nest image and colored it in shades of green. We used to have the coolest chickens that would lay green eggs just the color of this one. We *thought* we brought some of them when we moved but ended up with only brown and white egg layers. I really miss having green eggs! The image was colored with Copic Markers then highlighted with a stardust pen. I used a printed acetate sheet from Hambly for the background. It's layered over a torn sheet of PTI "New Leaf" paper and some yellow glitter paper from DCWV.

Take a peek at the other designer team blogs for more great Impression Obsession projects. Also take a peek at the IO blog for current sales!








I know lots of you have asked when these fantastic new stamps would be available and I'm happy to say they are now on the Impression Obsession site!!
