Impression Obsession Winter Blog Hop- Day 3


Whenever I make a predominantly purple card, it always makes me think of my mom. She sure does love her purple!

For today's card, I used the Garden Pots (E8935) and filled them with the Petit Tussie Mussie (C8866). I didn't want to deal with masking, so I stamped the flowers apart from each other. I then colored all of the images with watercolor pencils and a blender pen. For the background, I used the Beauty Text Cover a Card (CC142). It is a really nice, practical background stamp to have. I colored the background text with Distress Inks and sprayed the whole thing with gold Shimmer Spritz (you just can't see it in the photo).


Here is a little information about the winter blog hop:

A delightful card, Laura! I like the idea of not needing the mask by keeping the flowers separated. The CAC Beauty Text has just gone on my shopping list for Stampfest next month! It looks amazing!
