Impression Obsession Sneak Peek Week 2011

Hello again everyone! I've got another card using one of Impression Obsession's newest release and a new to IO artist, Hannah Davies. I LOVE this artist's folk art style. The images and designs are so unique! Wait till you see all the rest of the stuff IO has coming...


I used my new favorite technique, Burnished Velvet for this card. The image was covered with a double sided adhesive sheet tape, Glitter Ritz sprinkled all over it, then burnished it down with my finger. After glittering, I went back with some markers and a water brush and water colored the whole thing. I love the way a little bit of the colors bleed with this technique, it's got a bit of a tie-dye look. 


Make sure you stop by all the other DT member's blogs to get peeks of more new stamps coming to a store near you!
