Today I have a fun and colorful card to share with you. You might have heard me say that Impression Obsession is my new favorite stamp line. So, when I received these fab Impression Obsession Stamps from Dolce Stamps and Cards I couldn't wait to show them some ink.
This card has lots of color and dimension. I will be entering it in the Impression Obsession Purple Challenge. Thanks to my friend Emily for pointing out the IO challenges and encouraging me to enter my cards!!
~I stamped this gorgeous Goldfish-F2328 in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Prisma Colored Pencils and Gamsol. I went over it with a Versamarker Pen and fussy cut it out. I don't recommend doing this after a glass of wine~LOL. Set it aside.
~Using a Mega Mount Block, I stamped the Cover a Card- Bubbles-CC026 in Versamark and Clear embossed it. I love the Mega Mount....I get a clear impression EVERY TIME!! Then sponged Adirondack Aqua Ink over the bubbles for a very subltle background and set it aside.
~ I created a window using a Spellbinders Labels 8 out of a dark purple layer. Save the Labels 8 for a future project.
~I hand cut some ocean grass out of green scraps and punched some leaves. Sponged the greenery with Memento Cottage Ivy Ink and adhered the with score tape at the back side of the window.
~I punched a border using Scalloped Scallops EK Success Border punch a fancy doo-dad from Spellbinders Parisian Accents and sponged them with Adirondack Eggplant.
~I sponged a tag from Spellbinders Ribbon Trio with Memento Lavender and Adirondack Aqua. Stamped Best Fishes- A5450 and threaded some turqouise ribbon through it and popped up the tag with 3D Dots.
~I used 3D Dots all arount the back side of the purple panel and layered it on the white bubble panel.
~ I took the Golfish and glued some parts down and popped parts of him up trying to make it look like he is swimming out of the grasses.
~I addes some Rain Dots for air bubbles and some Pearls to finish it off.
