IO Sneaks Day 3!




Hi all! The fun continues here with MORE peeks of images that are just now being unveiled to get ready for next week's big CHA show! With the big event right around the corner, the Impression Obsession design team is busy showing off some of IO's new images ripe for spring! (Keep reading, because you could actually WIN some too!) 

On to my creation!

I have to say, I am a huge fan of Alesa Baker's illustrations and this one above is no exception - just such a lovely line drawing that we crafters can bring to life with a little color! The stamp is called Beauty Roses. I stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then colored up my flower using Copic Markers. (I used R81, R81, R85, G20, G40, G43, G46, BV02, BV00, and BV0000) The paper is from Prima and is called Meadowlark. Add some sheer ribbon, a shape cut, embossed and sanded thanks to the Spellbinders Beaded Ovals, and a little crystal button and... ta da!

And, here's a close up of a little border that adds some zing called Rose Text Border. I stamped in London Fog Memento and then trimmed along the scallops to serve as a little accent.
And, here's a close up of my finished flower - kind of soft and romantic, don't you think?
 
And that, my friends, is it! Want to see some of the other new IO images for spring? Hop on over to see these ladies below and just know -- all the fun starts over on the Impression Obsession blog! 
Here's some fun details about this week's hop -- if you comment on all DT blogs including the IO blog, you'll be in the running for a $25 Gift Certificate! If you comment each day, there will be an extra drawing just for those folks! So, hop on over to everyone and comment away. It could be your chance to get your hands on some of Impression Obsession's newest images!

See you back here tomorrow for more fun!
