Dogwood flowers always make me think of spring and it's finally beginning to feel like spring here in southern New York. Impression Obession stamps have such amazingly beautiful detail. I love this stamp! After playing with my other card for the IO challenge on and off this week, this one came together in a snap.
I stamped the dogwood using Memento - Pear Tart ink. The image was cut with a Spellbinders label die and then colored with copics. I used Linen, Tea dye and Peeled Paint (my go-to green lately) distress ink to color the edges. The Spellbinders label die was used as a stencil to keep the edge white. I stamped an extra dogwood flower on another piece of white cardstock, cut it out, colored it with copics and popped it up with foam tape. The dogwood centers were colored with light pink and yellow copics but the color looks almost orange in the photo. The flower centers were brushed with glitter using a Wink of Stella brush.
The flower layer was adhered to the scalloped oval with foam tape for added dimension and the oval also has foam tape behind it. I used the Cuttlebug modern wallpaper embossing folder on the white background layer to mirror the shape of the Spellbinders flower layer. I used a Cuttlebug chevron embossing foder on the tan vertical stripe and layered a rust colored paper behind that. At the very bottom is a piece of green cardstock (that I believe is from Stampin' Up - maybe certainly celery?) and then a final layer of brown.
Thanks for looking!
