CHA Sneak Peeks Day 3

The Impression Obsession team is showcasing some new images being introduced this week at CHA! You can visit the I.O. Blog each day this week for links to the previews. Be sure to leave a comment on each designer's posts throughout the week for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate daily from Impression Obsession!

Here are more of my dkdesigns stamps - I used Pin Cushion and Make Patterns, and Pattern for the textured panel. I learned how to sew when I was growing up, and though I don't like to follow patterns, I'm thankful for the creative legacy passed down through generations. My Granny is an avid quilter, even in her late 80's.


I used Ranger reinkers to watercolor the main image, and the embossing folder I used is from Sizzix.



Be sure to stop by tomorrow to see more new images from Gary Robertson, and a quick flower tutorial - hope you're enjoying the hop!
Thanks for stopping by!
