Overflowing With Love




[This is my second post for today. If you're looking for my MFTeaser, scroll down to the previous post. Thanks!]


I'm so happy to have spent some time Thursday and Friday coloring up this lovely Impression Obsession image - Valentine Fountain. Right before I left for CHA, I was in a huge no-coloring mood. Just looking at line art images was enough to give me hives. Kind of scary for a girl who loooooooves to color! Fortunately, my time at CHA included a visit to the Impression Obsession booth. Talk about inspiration!

I stamped in Versafine Onyx Black onto watercolor paper and colored up this baby using mostly Tombow markers (I did a teeny bit of coloring with Prismacolor pencils to enhance the grass, but even that was mostly Tombows). The main panel is cut with one of the dies from the Spellbinders curved rectangle mega Nestabilities set. To make the thin gray mat around it, I followed these steps that Michelle posted to her blog a while back. Thanks Michelle! The patterned papers are from the Basic Grey Sugar Rush collection.

My favorite part is the companion sentiment, Overflowing With Love, which you can see on the inside:



Isn't that just the sweetest image and sentiment combo? Love it!! Stamper's Dream carries a fantastic selection of Impression Obsession stamps. You can find them all HERE.

Snow has been falling all day here in Northern Virginia, so we've got a pretty good accumulation by now. I was so glad my oldest son got his basketball game in before the county canceled the rest of today's activities. After two back-to-back losses last weekend and the weekend before, it was great to see them pull off an impressive win today. Go Rebels!

Oh Amy this is just lovely. I am just smitten with your little heart fountain card. You don't miss a single detail. We've got about 9 inches of the white fluffy stuff on the ground and hubby's snow blowed twice today and it's still coming down at 6:30 p.m. Anyway, I just had to drop in and tell you how much I love your card.
