IO Design Team Challenge

Guess what? It is time for another Impression Obsession Design Team challenge! This month's challenge was to create a card using "stamps only." By that, we meant that you couldn't use any patterned papers to make your card. Embellishments, however, were allowed.

For my card, I used the new Leigh Hannan sunflower head. I know I have said it before, but I just love her stuff! I stamped the flower onto white paper and then colored it with Copic markers. I cut around the flower leaving a small jagged border and layered it onto a strip of green paper. I punched out leaves with the same green paper and attached a yellow tag to finish the card. Here is a close-up of the stamp:

Make sure to check out the other designer blogs to see what they made. Bernadette, Daniela, Julie, and Penny are all planning on participating. Remember, because of all the time zones, there will be posting all day Wednesday. I hope you enjoy what we created!

Laura, your coloring on this flower is amazing! I have never used Copic markers, and I keep putting off using them (for fear of being addicted to yet another toy!) BUT, your work is so beautiful, I may have to break down and try it! Thanks for the inspiration!
