Good morning everyone, it's time for another Impression Obsession challenge. This week we're using the color blue for our inspiration. Here's what I came up with:
I've always admired brayered backgrounds with black silhouettes for their elegant, simple beauty, so I tried that out. I used Leaf Silhouettes 7 and 2 for this card, just stamped in black Memento ink. The moon was masked off with a post it note before I started brayering, then I went back with the negative mask and added the yellow with a sponge dauber.
While I was stamping the leaves I was thinking what kind of patterned paper I should use for the card base. I didn't want anything too busy to distract from the main image, it needed to be simple and subtle. Well, I couldn't think of anything in my stash that would be right, and I didn't feel like digging anyway, lol. I chose to stamp a light blue background with the Music Cover-a-Card. Perfect! Now I could call this card 'Moonlight Sonata', haha!
The sentiment is also from Impression Obsession, 'If you are Grateful'.
Now hop on over to the IO blog to see what's new, then you can check out the rest of the DT's Blue cards for more inspiration.
