The IO Design Team is sharing creations today based on the color theme of Red, White and Blue.
You can always play along in the challenges with IO, just hop over to the Impression Obsession Blog to read the how to and link up your card..... as always there is a $25 gift certificate up for grabs!
Check out what the ladies cooked up for this week...
Red, White and Blue.... patriotic of course would be the obvious choice. I went a different direction, creating this very simple card! I can easily see this fence die turned in to a ribbon border die as becoming one of my favorites!
Simple coloring... no blending. Coloring the background with the blue and adding the red center on the flowers. I added a 1/16 border around the cut out flower squares. The stamp is shown below and it actually has four panels... Mixed 2 Square Item # F1275. I think this stamp has unlimited possibilities!
This is a new Fence Die from IO it also has a coordinating Fence Stamp available. Other DT Members have been using it not just as a fence... but as a ribbon border. I had to copy cat them! Too clever! You can attach two or more together easily for a longer border.
I also used one of the new Cover-a-Card Stamps - Small Quatrefoil to create my own pattern paper behind the flower panel.
