It's Party Time!

Hi all... Impression Obsession is throwing a bit of a party today -- with a challenge! All you have to do is have some fun and create a card with a party in mind. Grab your IO stamps and then, post your creation over on the IO blog HERE using the Inlinkz widget at the bottom of the blog post today.

On to my creation...

I have to say I love this image -- it's got such a fun contemporary flair and it was fun to paper piece and color up! The stamp is called Streamers  and I love the fact that it is large enough to take up a good portion of a card front. I used Copic markers to color up the stars and dangling globes and picked a mix of ice blues and oranges. The pennants were stamped on decorative paper, cut out and glued on. I also added some razzle dazzle with the help of some glitter glue. See?

I added a fun Martha Stewart punch on the side, some crushed ribbon and a large button threaded with orange and white twine and.. ta da! Finished! Keep in mind, if you want to party with the IO gals, you have until October 10th to play along and you could win a $25 gift certificate if your lucky name is drawn! So, get those fingers inky and while you're surfing, make sure you head on over and see these fine ladies and what they whipped up with a festive flair!

Julie  -- you are here!

Thanks for stopping by! I'll  be back tomorrow with a fun-filled release week challenge courtesy of Flourishes and Saturday is World Card Making Day and I'll have a fun challenge to share then too! So.... stay tuned! And, hopefully, I'll see you back here soon! :-)

The color scheme you've chosen matches the contemporary feel of the image, nice to see something else than red and green for Christmas. Lovely !
