Impression Obsession Summer 2016 Release Blog Hop Day 1

Good Monday morning and welcome to day one of the Impression Obsession Summer Stamp Blog Hop. Our team has some beautiful projects to share and prizes to give away!  You can check out all the details on the Impression Obsession Blog.  Make sure you visit and comment on all the team posts for a chance to win.

My project today was made using the new Flower Birdhouse 2 stamp paired with the Leafy Branch, Tiny Flowers, Butterfly Set and Border Duo 1.  The base layers were cut using the We are Memory Keepers Nesting Card Templates.

I stamped the birdhouse twice on watercolor paper using black versafine and set the ink with my heat gun.  I used my waterbrush and reinkers to paint the images.  I cut out the whole birdhouse image with my scissors. I painted the painted the flowers leaves and stems on the second house, cut them out, formed them lightly with my stylus and molding pad and attached them to the main birdhouse with glossy accents. I applied a little glossy accents to the flowers centers and sprinkled a little glitter on for some sparkle but it doesn’t show well in my photos.

I attached the completed birdhouse and decorative border to the card base using strips of mounting tape.  I tucked the leafy branch sections in behind the house and border and attached with glossy accents. I added the tiny red flowers to the branches and attached with glossy accents.  I attached the three butterflies to the white space of the card base with glossy accents for the finishing touch.
