IO Design Team Challenge!

Hi all! It's time for another Impression Obsession Design Team Challenge! This month, the team had to bring the look of fall into their card and I had just the perfect stamp! THIS one, called Fall Leaves....

Instead of just grabbing my Prismas, I decided to bring on a bit of the bling! I stamped the leaves with Rich Brown Momento ink and then colored all the leaves with watercolor pencils for the base of color. After I was done there, I went over all the elements with some Shimmerz. I love how this glittery paint blended all the color underneath and gave my image a real depth. When you look at my leaves straight on, you can't see the sparkle but turn it to the light... and BAM!

Here's a closeup....

FYI: I used Royal Red, Pumpkin, Olive Green and Rustic Red.

To finish my card, I added some paper peircing and then my saying "To Everything There Is A Season" down the side of one of my mats with some Rich Brown Momento Ink. Add some ribbon, a button and you're done!

You have to check out what the other members of the IO Design Team came up with!

and our brand new Guest Designer... Dina Kowal!

Here's a little bit about Dina that you might not know! You might have stopped by her "place"Mama Dini’s Stamperia before. But, did you know that she is now a missionary along with her family in Indonesia? She also is a self taught graphic designer, plays the piano, and makes a mean homemade pizza! What I love about Dina's style is her fabulous use of color. She is a wiz with Prismacolor and Watercolor Pencils! So, stop by, say "hi!" and welcome her aboard! You won't be sorry that you did!

I'll be back tomorrow with Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Challenge! Just a hint.... you'll need a "buck" to play! :-)

See you soon!
