Shimmerz and Impression Obsession

As promised here is one of my makes for the Shimmerz and Impression Obsession product swap where the DTs get to play with each company’s products. I was very, very lucky indeed to get hold of some absolutely gorgeous Impression Obsession stamps (thank you, guys), two of which I have used in today’s card and the other I will be showing you later in the week.

Details: I just felt that this wonderful vintage dress stamp Feminine Form matched beautifully with a vintage feel card. I’ve coloured the stamp with distress inks and Shimmerz Paints Aqua Marine and Angel Wings, the background under the doily is the fabulous Porcelain Crackle stamped onto patterned paper that had been sprayed with Shimmerz Spritz Baby’s Breath. Both the doily and the patterned paper yo-yos where also sprayed with Shimmerz Spritz Baby’s Breath. I finished the card with some paper distressing, partial sewing, buttons and a bead charm recycled from a broken necklace.
