In Love With Spring - Impression Obsession NEW RELEASE!

Hey friends! It's a big week over at Impression Obsession! Today kicks off the In Love with Spring Release Celebration. I'm so excited to share some Valentine and Springtime stamps and dies with you this week!

Let's get right to this card, because it is so filled with COLOR and FUN that I can't wait! This card features the new Love Squared stamp - but first, let's talk about that background. I've been using this technique a lot lately because I just love rainbow stripes! I used Jane Davenport ColorSticks on the background. These water soluble gel crayons give such amazing bold colors, and they can be blended a bit with water. After scribbling across a cardstock panel I brushed over it lightly with water and then added a splatter of Black Licorice Silk.

To color the stamped image, I began with another fun Jane Davenport coloring tool, Mermaid Markers. They are highly pigmented watercolors in a brush. They can be applied straight to paper, or diluted with water. I brushed the color right onto my image, and then added some ColorStick details to the flowers.

To finish off the card, I added FSJ Rainbow Drops. I coordinated the dot color with the stripe colors. It's a subtle touch, but I love the texture and shine it adds without overpowering the main image.
Okay, my friends. I hope you loved this COLORFUL rainbow Valentine card! And THIS is only the beginning. We have a whole week of new release fun. Here are the details:

I love how you did that sentiment on that background. I have not seen Jane Davenport color sticks. I love her watercolor paints. I have all sets and use them all the time. Will need to look for the color sticks.
