Impression Obsession and Misti blog hop

Welcome to the Impression Obsession and My Sweet Petunia Blog Hop. This is my first ever hop, and so far I have had a blast, and I am sure you will enjoy the hop too.

GIVEAWAY

Yes, there will be a giveaway by way of  a draw on Wednesday October 12, 2016, drawn from all who leave comments on all the blogs in the hop to give away a Mini MISTI and a $25.00 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate. The winners will be posted on the Impression Obsession Blog.

So, visit the fabulous designers on both teams and leave a comment (one per blog please) for your chance to win.

For my card, I used the Impression Obsession Poinsettia Sketch and Merry Christmas stamps to make my 5.5 square card. 
I started by laying my card base in my MISTI and played around until I got a look I liked. I stamped with Tim Holtz Distress Inks Barn Door and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
When stamping my background I also stamped another flower on watercolour paper to cut out.
I coloured the flower using Zig Brushes adding several layers to achieve the colours I wanted. I styled the flower slightly before attaching with glossy accents to ensure it stays in place. I put my card back in MISTI to arrange and stamp my sentiment. I then added Wink of Stella to the flower centre and to the tiny berries on the cardbase. 
To finish I added my trademark sequins ... I am pleased with the finished card. I wish you could see the shine from the Wink of Stella though, it is so pretty IRL.

The Hop List for today is:


Have fun ....

Products: MISTI Original, Impression Obsession Poinsettia Sketch, Impression Obsession Christmas Stamp, Zig Clean Color Brushes, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Barn Door, Simon Says Stamp Intense Black, Embossing Ink, Clear Embossing Powder, Wink of Stella Brush, Glossy Accents, Sequins.

  67. I love how you came up with the background layout for this card. So often we're stuck with one area of the card we work in, and the balance and pop of colour from the Poinsettia in the upper left corner really works. The pop of sequins work too to give this card just enough glam and not take away from your beautifully coloured flower. Thanks for sharing.
