IO Spring... Day 4!

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!
Gosh, when I first saw this stamp -- Party Pinwheels -- I just smiled. Doesn't this, in a way, remind you of just blowing and blowing to get those little pinwheels to spin as a kid? It's fun to remember back and that's what I did when I first set eyes on this stamp. It is actually just one stamp (a large and small pinwheel) that I stamped twice on my piece of white card stock. After that, I knew that I wanted to paper piece some of those wheels, so I took five different designs of decorative paper and just stamped it on all of them, adding contrast by cutting and piecing each piece to each wheel. It was a bit time consuming, but I like the result! After that, I added some decorative paper for my square card, added some stitching and accented around my pinwheels and their sticks with Copic Markers. Add a sentiment -- this was called Life Is Good, plus a little button and some twine and... ta da! All done

Here's a close up of the pinwheels, you can see that I also blinged up the centers with little red rhinestones!

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!
