Out to Impress!



When I first heard that Impression Obsession was going to do a Product Swap with Shimmerz, I was so excited! I have several Impression Obsession images and have been long been a fan of their stamps. The 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. If you're looking for a great line of stamps to use in coordination with your Shimmerz products, this is the perfect one!
