Spotlight on Impression Obsession

We love the wonderfully detailed images from Impression Obsession. Sometimes folks get intimidated by the amount of detail - do I really have to color all of that? The answer is "NO"! Why not try a technique called spotlighting? Spotlighting is when you color only a portion of the image to really highlight that specific part. In this case, we colored the entire sunflower head, but you could just color a square inch or just the butterfly. The possibilities are endless! The backing card is not decorative paper (although I've been fooled many times). It's one of the large Cover-a-card stamps from I.O. I love the flexibility of coordinating my decorative paper perfectly (and not having to spend hours looking for just the right piece of paper). Join us for the Thursday FREE make-and-take. You'll have to try it to believe how easy it is to stamp this large background stamp!
