Hello everyone. I hope you all had a very happy start to the new year. Today will be the first Impression Obsession challenge of the year, and it is all about the color blue.
For my card, I decided to make a chalky background, so I covered a piece of white cardstock with turquoise PanPastel, stamped my Medium Snowflake background (E6266) repeatedly with Versamark ink, then sponged ultramarine PanPastel onto the snowflakes. I could have started with a light blue piece of paper and stamped the snowflakes in a dark blue, but the chalk gives a softer mottled look that I wanted.
Next, I took a scrap of my chalky paper and stamped the Mitten Border Large (D8797) in Memento Luxe Danube Blue ink and added the saying with the same blue ink (Let it Snow C 13164). I glued everything down as a pocket and added a teabag. Normally I wouldn't add an unwrapped teabag, but the wrapper didn't match the blue color palette, so it had to go. :)\
