Impression Obsession Week: Day Three



I'm back today with an artsy canvas tag project to share for Impression Obsession Week at Stamper's Dream. The canvas tag (oh my gosh, I'm in love!) is from Maya Road. First I inked up Impression Obsession's large Music Cover-A-Card Background Stamp in Ranger's new Pumice Stone Distress Ink and stamped the whole tag. It's a very light effect, so you may not see it in the photo. Next I added a Prima crystal and pearl flourish, followed by some May Arts Ivory Loose Braid Wired Ribbon topped with some gray twill Pink Paislee Ribbon Pleats. Another oh my gosh, I'm in love - this twill comes already pleated and stitched! The ribbon border is topped by a loopy bow made from some Offray skinny ribbon and a Prima flower. Last comes the three Impression Obsession Mannequins, which I stamped onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White card stock and colored using Prismacolor pencils. I trimmed each one out before adhering to the tag, partly so the crystals could show from behind and partly so I could nudge them a little closer together. To replace the rod portion of the stamped image, which I wasn't able to successful trim around, so therefore cut off altogether, I simply hot glued the tops and bottoms onto straight pins. Worked beautifully!

Be sure to check out Dream Teammates Cammie, Michelle, Silke, and Tosh, who are also posting Impression Obsession lovelies today.

Thanks so much for visiting!
