My first Impression Obsession stamp was Leigh Hannan’s Candy Jars. I love the old fashioned candy and the unlimited color possibilities to go with it. Today I went with pink for a Valentine’s card. Impression Obsession’s challenge this week is to make a shaped card. Now, I feel like I am stretching that a bit since it is still kind of rectangular, but not a true rectangle.
I think this is about as pink as it gets! I went with 3 pink Copics – RV10, RV23 and RV25 and went to town coloring. Since this image is so big, I was limited in my Nestie selection. I picked out the two largest Labels 8 Nesties to cut out the image and then the card base. The card base is Raspberry Fizz from PaperTrey Ink and is embossed with Swiss Dots. When I embossed the image panel, it didn’t come out very well. I need to get the larger embossing pads. To make the edge stand out a bit more, I traced around with my RV25 marker and then topped it off with Pink Shimmerz.
To bling up the candy, I added Stickles to the rock candy. The jar lids have a bit of shimmer from Pink and Bubblegum Shimmerz. The sentiment is also from Impression Obsession and is stamped in VersaMark and embossed with clear embossing powder. A cute little double bow in Raspberry Fizz satin was the final touch.
