A few of my favorite things....

Hi all! It's time for another Impression Obsession challenge and this one is kind of nostalgic! I used to love as a kid when Thanksgiving would come and somewhere on TV, you could find and watch the movie, The Sound of Music. I just love it. So, you can tell why I would love this challenge!! It was to be inspired by the song -- My Favorite Things.

My inspiration? Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes!

I used Ice Skate Stockings and stamped with Bahama Blue Memento Ink. Afterward, I used B41 and B00 Copic Markers and colored just parts of my skates, blending with a Copic Colorless Blender. I just wanted it to be a real light monochromatic look. Add an embossed background, mount it on some layered shapes (thanks to Spellbinders' Labels 14) add some blue satin ribbon and some bling and... done! I also colored a second bow and popped it up thanks to some foam tape. Easy Peasy!

Here's a close up! You'll have to stop by and see how the rest of the Impression Obsession DT was inspired by "My Favorite Things!"
