Impression Obsession DT Thursday!

Every other Thursday, Impression Obsession's blog hosts a different designer from their team to give them top billing and showcase some of their creations. I'm happy to say that today... I'm that designer! Even though the calendar still says August, fall images seem to be my favorite. I love the rich and rustic colors (that burnt orange is my favorite color!!) and the images that IO pumped out this past CHA were just what my stamp room needed! Want to see what I mean?
This image is one of my favorites. It's just so homey. This front porch looks like it has a story to tell with the weathered boots and aged wood door and floor. The stamp is called Welcome Mat and if you look at my actual mat to my card, you'll see I picked up the Wood Grain Cover-A-Card. I think this is a perfect background stamp to get that earthy/rustic feel! After stamping my image, really the fun began with my Copic Markers. I used a mix and I'll try to name all of the numbers - here goes - YR02, YR04, YR07, YG00, YG03, YG13, YR14, E08, E97, T2, T5, T07, R27, E33, E27, E37, YG63.

Add some stitching, some antique brads, some twine and that's pretty much it! With large and detailed images like this, it's hard to add much more and I figure, who would want to! ;-)

I will say, Impression Obsession has some fun and heart felt projects that the team is working on. And two of them are coming up in the next month or so to help out a VERY good cause - Operation Write Home. You can read up on the effort by clicking over to the Impression Obsession blog HERE.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope your Thursday is full of sunshine and smiles! My kids went back to school yesterday so... it's VERY quiet around the house. Almost too quiet!

Have a fabulous day!

Love the way you accented the image by just adding pops of color to just some of the image. It's really lovely!

Awesome coloring! What a great image to showcase your talents! Like the woodgrain background and how you minmized the frou frou and let the image shine. Enjoy your little piece of quiet.

Great card! I love this IO stamp! This one is on my wish list. I also love how you highlighted the leaves, they really pop! Thank you for sharing.
