Impression Obsession Designers' Challenge!

This week, the Impression Obsession designers are engaged in a collaboration with the Simmmerz designers, using IO stamps and Shimmerz paints...a natural mix! This is the card I did, a double slider using one of the brand new Leigh Hannan Christmas stamps due to be released at CHA later this month, and sentiment stamps also from the Christmas collection. I coloured the image with Touch alcohol based markers, then overpainted accents with Shimmerz paints (Bubble Gum and Angel Wings. It's difficult to capture the beautiful shimmery finish, but trust me, it's just GORGEOUS, and so perfect for Christmas! This design holds a surprise gift card well...nice for popping in the mail! It also meets the current Wednesday Stamper challenge...colourful.





Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you'll have time to look at the other Impression Obsession designers' blogs for their beautiful creations. The links are on the sidebar, just look right. ;)

I wish you a creative summer weekend!
