Well, I received the news today that I would be part of the design team for Impression Obsession. Yeah! I am really looking forward to the challenges they send to me. Basically, they will be sending me a box of product every two months for me to play with. I am required to make at least four projects with the supplies. It sounds like fun. If I can parlay the projects into classes I can teach at Angela's....all the better!
Of course I had to look at the work of the other designers who were selected. I must say they are a very impressive bunch! There is a nice eclectic assortment of card artists as well as scrapbookers. Everyone seems to have their own blog, so I am glad mine is up and running.
The card today was made by using the "faux batik" technique on watercolor paper instead of mulberry paper. I embossed the butterfly images with clear embossing powder then sprayed the entire paper with an assortment of blue color sprays. I then used an iron to remove the powder. I finished the card by masking around the butterflies and then stamping them with a script stamp. The thing about this card that amused me was that I had forgotten what it was like to design a card with so many steps. Usually I make cards that easily translate to teaching in classes. It was nice to make art for art's sake.
