Impression Obsession

Hallo,

Welcome to Thursday am - I am awake today (unlike yesterday...) but a ton of things to do today.....its my kiddos last day of school (we always go to lunch on the last day...), then there is groceries, clean house....and I am determined to get to the craft room today!!!!

Today's cards are for the new challenge over at the Impression Obsession (IO) blog for black and white - check it out here - http://www.mitrafriant.typepad.com/




I did 3 variations of the same card.
The main panel was stamped with IO's cover-a-card-Quilt CC033 in gray ink (I swiped a bit of color off the middle so it was lighter) and then stamped over that with the dress forms. Both stamps are from IO but I could not find the dress forms on the web site this am to get you the # - maybe it is retired.....

Shirley - www.cardartect.blogspot.com has helped me out with the name/# of the main stamp - mannequins, F2375
Thanks!!!!

I stamped the dress forms and embossed them in black, and then stamped/embossed them again onto some gray and darker gray paper with black and white embossing powder.


I then colored in and accented them both with a black copic and a white gel pen, cut them out and layered them on top the main panel.

For behind the main panels I chose a couple different DP and then embellished with flowers and old buttons.

The black and white flowers were black coredinations paper die cut and run through an embossing folder and then sanded to reveal the white core.

In other news - my old meow is feeling better this am after some fluids and a pain shot. I was hopeful that she would sleep a bit during the night with the pain shot but no luck there - she still woke us every 2 hours, just with more energy than she has the past week or so.....silly old meow.....

All for this am folks - off to get my poor ol mutt his walk - he has been waiting not so patiently.....if I make it to the craft room and get something done while I still have daylight for photos there might be another post from me today.....rather ambiguous eh....

Take Care
Tera

I love seeing all of the different designs! I can't choose a favorite but I love how the figure forms stand out from the oval behind them in your third card! Your flowers and buttons are also gorgeous. Thank you for sharing.
