Out to Impress!

Impression Obsession did a little product swap with the Shimmerz team recently. I have several Impression Obsession images and have been long been a fan of their stamps. This pairing is absolutely perfect, too - Shimmerz makes the perfect medium for coloring in these great images. Just take a look at the shine I was able to add to this coffee cup image from the "Smell the Coffee" set:

All I added there was a touch of pink and celery Shimmerz! The image was initally colored with Copics; I applied the Shimmerz right over the top for a great look.

One of the things that is so fun about Impression Obsession is the wide variety of stamps that they carry. This stamp is such a beautiful garden scene, and I used a bunch of Shimmerz products on it without it being overpowered. The background is covered in Shimmerz Spritz in Baby's Breath, which shows well here:

This picture lets you see the Evergreen, Sky Blue, and Royal Red that I used on other areas:

I added a little Flower Soft and pearls and created a gorgeous card with tons of detail!

This series of topiaries is just a delightful stamp! I knew right away that this image was just MADE for Shimmerz! I painted the image first, then added in shading with matching colored pencils. Just look at how beautifully it turned out!

For a closer look at the gorgeous effect that you get with Shimmerz, take a look at this:

Thanks to the generous crew at Impression Obsession. These stamps are a lot of fun to use with Shimmerz.

Be well,
