Welcome to Day 4 of the Impression Obsession 2014 Spring Release Designer Hop!
We have some beautiful CHA peeks to share AND Gift Certificates to give away each day!!!
The hop will start each day with a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog at 6am EST. Each day pay us a visit and then head over and see our fabulous IO Design Team’s projects with our new stamps and dies on their blogs (only one comment per blog per day please). The more blogs you visit each day the better chance you will have to win!
Every day (Monday Jan 6th – Friday Jan 10th) one of the blogs will be chosen randomly and a winner will be selected from comments on that blog at 10pm CT. The winner will be announced the following day along with the participating blogs for that day.
Two prizes will be awarded on the last day of the hop. One will be for Friday’s comments and another will be chosen from all the comments left throughout the week. So if you miss a day or time deadline your comments will still count for a chance to win a $25 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate! Both Friday winners will be announced on the IO Blog on Saturday.
Today’s hop list!
Jenny Gropp - You are here!
I do love to pull out the Copics for an image like this! This is a Gary Robertson image called Two Bunnies. Scenes like this are a favorite of mine and others that are colorers. And I also know not everyone wants to sit and color for a long time, so I wanted to show that you can always change up your image. I cut this image right in half...which cut my coloring time right in half too! In the background I stamped the new Canvas Background with the Happiness is a Butterfly sentiment.
Here you can see the other half of the image.
Above you can see the Copic Markers I used to color the image. I stamped the butterfly a second time so I could pop it up on the panel adding some dimension.
Using the Pocket Watch Die I found the perfect little die cut to use for my butterfly body!
On the inside.... you can see I cut the fancy butterfly out of the white liner paper and then backed the opening with printed paper. I cut the butterfly again in brown to pop in to place. You can see below the finished inside.
I also used the Fence Border Die along the left side. I cut off the fence post tops and then wove a patterned paper strip through it.
