IO Sneak Peeks!

Hi all, Happy Monday and welcome to a week of Impression Obsession's winter preview for all of their new stamps that are just now being unveiled! The fun thing is -- you have a chance to win some of these images. Each day the DT will show off some new images and if you comment on all the posts.... you just might win a $25 gift certificate to the IO store!

If this is your first stop, be sure to check HERE at the IO blog for the link list!

Moving on to my creation....
I absolutely love this new image from Gary Robertson called Live, Laugh, Love Mailboxes. I think it's a real charmer and just love the old fashioned feel. This is a perfect "snail mail" creation if you ask me! I colored it completely with Copic Markers and -- used these colors -- Y21, Y23, Y35, Y38, E27.E27. B21, B00, B0000, R27, R29, C00. C01, C03, C05, C07, YG01, YG03, YG63 and RV32. Mat it up with some BasicGrey and My Mind's Eye decorative paper. Add some stiching and brown 1/2" ribbon, a button and... done! It's funny, some of the IO gals asked Mitra (Impression Obsession's owner) which new stamp seemed to be a favorite and well, this one was at the top of the list for all of us!

You'll have to stop by and leave some love in the form of a comment at the other IO blogs. Remember, you just need to start HERE and leave a comment on all of the blogs of the day to be in the running for the $25 gift certificate!

Good luck and I'll see you back here tomorrow for another sneak peek!

Now you got me feelin' "rural" and I love it! Pretty colors and I can almost smell the sunshine. C'mon summer!

It's me again, Maynard. For the IO thing, I've gotta change who I am. I'm gonna be "nise" like I am everywhere else so I can play the game (it's $25 and some of those cover a cards get me droolin'). It's just for a week and it'll kinda be like you have some new weirdo gawking at your creativity. Still feeling "rural" and "sunny".

What a sweet card! Thanks for listing the marker numbers you used.

Hi Julie,

I love the way you've coloured this , it's such a sweet image! I am quite partial to these mailboxes as of course we have nothing like them here in England, just letterboxes in our doors!
