Greetings friends.  Impression Obsession has a huge new release filled with images for the fall and holidays.  Of course, there are lots of other items including animals, trees, and fabulous sentiments.
For my card today, I wanted to use the trees from the Forest Friends clear set.   I stamped them onto watercolor paper, colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and cut them out to later adhear to my card.
The sentiment is from a set of four cling stamps called She Positives.  If you haven't seen the set, I encourage you to give it a look.  It has such inspirational sentiments that I know I will use for greeting cards as well as art journaling.
For the background, I stamped the French Text Cover a Card onto watercolor paper and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I then colored the background with an assortment of Color Burst Powders and a lot of water.

The other designers also have lots of ideas to share, so don't forget to visit them!
