 Hello and welcome to the Impression Obsession April New Release Blog Hop!

 Impression Obsession blog for the start of the hop.  Each day (April 5th and 6th) you can find
a list of participants on the Impression Obsession blog.  We will be giving away THREE
Impression Obsession $25 gift certificates-the more you comment (one comment per blog post per day) the greater your chances of winning!
All comments for each of the hop days will be open until Monday, April 12th, at 11:59pm.  
Winners will be announced Tuesday, April 13th on the Impression Obsession blog.  

This first card uses a really beautiful stamp by Dina Kowal, Bee Collage.  


The image was stamped with IO Black ink on water color paper.  My favorite Ken Oliver 
Colorbursts were used to watercolor the image.  I am trying to bring back torn paper, lol.  
I water colored more water color paper with the same colors, tore the edges and layered them.  
To finish the card, I stamped 'love' from the Gracefully Grateful Stamp Set and die cut it with the bitty tag from the Tea Cocoa Die Set and added it to a twine bow.  
I am linking this card up to Fusion Card Challenge where I was inspired by both the inspiration photo and the sketch.  
 


Next up, these  GORGEOUS slimline Anemones.
  

I love that these flowers are all separate, allowing you to arrange them how you want.  I 
started with the  middle flower, stamping it in IO Black ink on water color paper.  Then I masked it and stamped the smallest flower.  That was masked and I stamped the tallest flower.  All were water colored with yep. you guessed it, Ken Oliver Colorbursts.  Detail was added to the flower centers with a Pigma Micron Pen.  A few black sequins finish this card. 

The new stamps are available now!  You can find them all HERE.  

Next up on the hop is the talented Lynda.  

Enjoy the hop!
