Impression Obsession Challenge: Friendship Flowers

Hello friends! Welcome to another fun Impression Obsession Challenge, this time it is "Friendship Flowers"!! 
To enter the challenge go to the  Impression Obsession blog (all the details are there!). A random challenge card will be selected to showcase on the IO blog AND you can to enter to win a $25 gift certificate to IO just by playing!

So, I want to share with you how I made this card, super simple, but with fun details.

 For this project I used  "Spring Floral Heart" and "Sweet Happines"

First, I stamped the image using my Mini MISTI on a piece of watercolor paper in Jet Black Ink, then colored the image with Chameleon Color Tones PencilsI didn't use a solution to blend the colors, just the pencils and they blend beautifully.

After the image was colored, I cut it out. I wanted a bit of shimmer, but wasn't sure if a marker will change the color of the image, so I covered the image with Versamark Watermark ink and added Clear embossing powder. The image was beautifully coated, shiny and didn't change the colors. 

I cut a piece of White Cardstock 4" x 5.25" and scored the whole piece every 1/4". The background is very cool, I hope you can see it here.
Then, stamped the sentiment on a piece f Vellum in Versamark Watermark and added White Embossing Powder, adhered it on top of image and added rhinestones.
All panels were added to card base using foam adhesive.

Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!


  1. Wow, this does not look like it was colored with pencils at all. Nice addition of the clear embossing powder over it. I'll have to try that.

  2. Wowza!! That is gorgeous! Awesome image and love how you’ve colored it!
