Day 6-IO Sneak Peeks

Well, it is almost the end of my week posting Impression Obsession sneak peeks. I hope you have enjoyed it!

For today's card, I used the new Gail Green Martini (D7618) stamp. I love how the olive takes center stage. Personally, I can't get enough olives. Of course, I had to add green and red circles to look like an even bigger olive. To color the martini image, I used watercolor pencils and a blender pen. There is just a slight tint of red to the edges of the martini to make it look festive and to add a bit of color to the glass. To finish the card, I added the Reverse Damask Cover a Card background (CC082) and Cheers (A5500) saying.

Cheers!

Love all of the circles on this card! You put a lot of thought in the coloring of this image even though it could even stand alone as it is. I still must try the watercolor pencils with the blender pen. Your coloring is always so gorgeous, so it definately works well together. I almost missed the Cover-a-Card background, but it's a great addition to this card!

Another excellent example! Your layout is delightful and really showcases the stamp. Like the cover a card background paper you made, too. So happy you've been sharing every day for IO.
