 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.

Jeanne Streiff


I've got some shiny sequins in my shaker and some bright red metallic paper for the shiny challenge! When I cut the heart I used Stick It so I could easily piece some of the die cut hearts back in place on the acetate. Some of the frame layers are popped up for a little extra dimension.
