Howdy! And a happy Wednesday to you all. Today’s challenge is ANYTHING GOES, so no excuses not to play along! The Design Team is using Impression Obsession products and I have to say, I love them. I have 3 of their background stamps and managed to use all of them on my card today! They stamp to perfection and are big enough to cover your entire piece of card stock….. That’s always a plus for me…. I combined those stamps with my two other favorites, Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp exclusives……. YUM!
I inked up the brick background with Distress Paint, my first time using it. Pretty cool stuff… Need to play with them more to figure out other techniques to use with them! The speech bubble and text is from Simon Says Stamp… I love their stamps and dies. They are fantastic. I added a little liquid applique to the lion… Love the texture. I used two other Impression Obsession stamps for the hilltop and background panel….
This is the 2nd card I have made since my “maternity” leave…. About 3 months of no crafting took a toll on my creativity! I hope you all like this card. 🙂
