Impression Obsession Week: Day Two
Hi friends! It's Impression Obsession Week at Stamper's Dream! Be sure to check in with the Dream Team each day this week for oodles of Impression Obsession loveliness. Also posting today are Cindy, Dawn, Denise and Michelle. If you missed out on Day One, visit Laurie, Becca and the newest Dream Team member, Leslie Miller, to catch up. (Welcome to the team, Leslie! We are SO lucky to have you!).
And here's the schedule for the rest of the week:
Tomorrow (Wednesday): Cammie, Michelle, Silke, Tosh, and me again
Thursday: Cindy, Dawn, Denise, Leslie, and Michelle
Friday: Laurie, Michelle, Silke, and Tosh
For today's project, I've created a framed bath decor piece using an image called Sanctuary. Here's the full view:
I figure if I can't be in a tub like that, sipping wine and eating cake, then at least I can color one instead! Speaking of being in a tub like that, my first idea was to make a "do not disturb" door hanger. Totally useless in my house - I can't do anything without company - but I love the idea! I did all of my coloring with Prismacolor pencils, blending with Gamsol. I like the softer look of the pencils with this particular image.
I chose soothing shades of blues, greens, and grays, along with a touch of warm brown, for my color combo. The patterns in Memory Box's Spearmint collection worked perfectly as a backdrop. The word "relax" is done with Maya Road chipboard letters. I first painted them with white acrylic paint, then coated them with Ranger's Picket Fence crackle paint. Hopefully you can see the detail in this next shot:
The image is die-cut with the largest of the Labels 10 Nestabilities. I finished off with some ribbon pleating along the bottom and a ribbon and button combo at the top.
This was a tricky project to photograph, so here's one more shot. Hopefully, between the lot, you'll get a good feel for this! And remember, you can always click on any image for a larger view.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
