Impression Obsession - Moody Blues Challenge

The Moody Blues!
Love the color blue or know someone who needs a pick me up?  You are in luck!
 The Impression Obsession Challenge is all about Blue!

To play along in a challenge is easy. Use all IO stamps or dies, create and enter! New to challenges? You don't need a blog to play, just follow the guidelines that can be found on the IO Blog!  AND as always... There is a $25 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate up for grabs!

Check out the Blue designs from the team!


I inked up this funky star designed by Seth Apter and added a little Copic shading around the edges. This could make for a fun graduation card and you could switch up colors to reflect the school colors. The Blue Copics I used are: B41 and B0000. I used a little E43 to outline around the edges of the word to give it a little pop. A small star was cut out and popped up in the center for dimension.

Impression Obsession: Think PINK Challenge!



Welcome to Impression Obsession's challenge, THINK PINK! The only theme is use something PINK! 
New to playing in challenges? It's easy. You can find all the details you need here on the 
IO Blog. Did I mention that there was a $25 IO Gift Certificate up for grabs? Well, play along in our challenges and it just might be your lucky day!

Here are some PINK ideas from the DT:
 I colored my flowers all pink, since that was the challenge... then I had to add some yellow in the mix! I used the NEW Vintage Flower image and cut it out three times after stamping.  I clipped some leaves and placed them back in spots. The third flower I trimmed some petals off so it would be smaller and all three would not look the same.

 A sweet Valentine for today. I used the Brush Heart stamp today. Using MISTI i was able to ink up the heart with multiple colors to get an ombre look with the colors. I stamped the sentiment last using Memento which will not bleed into the other inks as much. I cut out the brush heart and then used an Action Wobble to pop it up.

 Of course I could not resist this adorable kitty stamp!! I can see it quickly becoming a favorite. This image is very easy to color. It has so much shading already built in by the artist, it makes it super easy to cover up any flaws! The top of the blanket kind of fades off in to nothing, so I just used a little Copic Blending solution to dab the edge and give it kind of a fuzzy edge.

Impression Obsession - Love is in the Air

LOVE IS IN THE AIR!

Welcome to Impression Obsession's challenge, "Love is in the Air"!
Have you seen the NEW Valentine release? Maybe there is something in there to inspire you for this challenge! No worries though, anything from IO that has to do with love or in the air will work. 
New to playing in challenges? It's easy. You can find all the details you need here on the 
IO Blog. Did I mention that there was a $25 IO Gift Certificate up for grabs? Well, play along in our challenges and it just might be your lucky day!

Here are some ideas from the DT:

This is one of the new images in the Valentine's release. I just used Copics to add a bit of color and a distressed feel. I added black Swarovski Crystals around the edge of the oval to dress it up, but you can't see them in the picture. I added some Crackle Accents over the Eiffel Tower for some shine. Finished card is an A2.
