Hi all and happy Thursday! It's time for another Impression Obsession Challenge and this one is inspired by nature! Just that simple -- grab your IO stamps and create with nature in mind! You can click HERE for all the details over on the IO Stamps Blog!
On to my creation! I have to tell you, I have been having a blast with some of IO's solid stamps and matching dies!
And... that's why I grabbed a few of those solid stamps, and a few Cover-A -Card backgrounds for a quick and easy creation! I stamped the Large Solid Leaf Stem in two shades of green (Pistachio and New Sprout Memento). I stamped the Dare to Dream sentiment on the bottom of my main panel with Rich Cocoa Ink and then... the fun began! I inked up the butterfly (Solid Frilly Butterfly Pair) with Teal Zeal Memento and while the ink was still wet, I stamped on the back of my stamp with THIS Cover-A-Card stamp called Lg.Paisley. So, when I stamped, you can see a faint impression left behind by the paisley backgrounder. See?
You can also see that I added a wood grain background -- Cover-A-Card Wood Grain -- on the base of my card for a little extra pop. Add some ribbon, and a button with some twine and almost done! I added a punched border below my main panel and... ta da! I think that this is truly a 10 to 15-minute card. An easy peasy creation that you could make in a jiffy and pop in the mail!
