Greetings friends. The IO design team has set aside a day to share some fabulous new Impression Obsession die projects! Have fun checking out what our Designers have made today. Today's participants can be found on the Impression Obsession Blog.
To make the card, I cut out the avocado from a very light green (almost yellow) cardstock. I then kept sponging Distress Inks around the edges in darker shades of green so that the darkest green would be next to the skin.
For the avocado pit, I cut out the pit from light brown cardstock and added dark brown ink to one side. I wanted the pit to have a rounded look.
I made my own patterned paper using the Dancing Leaves Cover a Card stamp. I inked up the stamp with various colors of dye-based ink, spritzed it with water and stamped it onto watercolor paper. Without reinking, I spritzed more water and stamped it again. I repeated this process multiple times so that I could have some backgrounds on hand. Each time you spritz and stamp, the colors will become more faded and look more and more like watercolored leaves. Choose the background that appeals to you most. Here is what the stamp looks like on its own:
