The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a card that showcases one of our favorite techniques.
I used a fun mixed-media technique on this card, where I stamped the Poppy Bouquet image several times in a light ink, colored the flowers with Touch Twin Markers, then 'masked' the image by covering up the colored areas with a clear Sakura Glaze pen. After the glaze is dry, it will resist water-based mediums layered over it.
I stamped my favorite Damask Cover-a-Card stamp over the panel in dye ink, and did a little water blending with that. When the panel was dry, I dry-brushed some white acrylic paint over it to soften the coloring. I used the Border Duo 2 die for the upper border.
