IO gets ready for CHA!

The paper is flying in the craft room again! This time it is to help Mitra and the rest of the Impression Obsession gang get ready for a HUGE CHA! This year comes with a few surprises! I'll give you some hints! If you love backgrounds -- you are going to LOVE the company's new line of cover-a-card backgrounds! There are more than TWO DOZEN styles and... yep...they cover the whole card front with ease! And, there is a brand new block that will fit these mega backgrounds. One that you won't have to strain yourself to use!

For my sneak peek today, I chose one of Alesa Baker's beautiful new images for Christmas. Because it is a non-traditional image, I chose a non-traditional color scheme!

I paired my pear up with a mix of decorative paper (Basic Grey Porcelain and Lasting Impressions) and solid paper (Bazzil and SU). Both the pear and the sentiment are new offerings that will be unveiled in just a few weeks at CHA!

I stamped my pear on Classic White paper and colored it up with Copic markers (YG00, YG03, YG06 with a touch of E29). The flowers were colored with watercolor pencils and then the centers were dotted with some Liquid Pearls in a pale pink. Add a decorative edge punch (SU) and some beautiful May Arts ribbon and ... done!

Here's a close up of my pear... I really love how this turned out!

Make sure to hop on over to Daniela's place and also the IO blog for some more sneaks to the new IO collection! While you are on the IO blog, check out some of the peeks showing the new Mega Mount acrylic block AND the cover-a-card backgrounds!

See you back here soon!
