Impression Obsession Day 1 August 2021 Release Celebration

It is never easy to pick what cards to share. But I decided I had to share these cards today.

Welcome to the Impression Obsession August 2021 Release Celebration!

Each day (August 2nd and 3rd) you can find a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog. We will be giving away THREE Impression Obsession Gift Certificates for the event - so the more you comment the more chances you have to win!

All comments for each of the event days will be open until Monday August 9th at midnight CT. All winners will be announced on Tuesday August 10th on the Impression Obsession Blog.

Now back to my cards for today.

I certainly could not resist this adorable cutie called Snowy Cardinal. I stamped the Cardinal using VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne then proceeded to watercolour in the reds which represents the male Cardinals. 

Once finished with the watercolour I added the watercolour snowy background along with Impression Obsession snowflake stamps and dies, and the sentiment, which is part of this release.

My next card represents the female cardinals.

I used the lighter colours representing the females to paint this image and added a pink background representing the snowfall around her.
The lighter colours of the females and the young are to help camouflage them thereby keeping them safe from predators. Nature is amazing!

Following is the list of those participating in today's hop and their links, along with links for the products I used today for my cards as well as the link for the new product line.

  19. Nature is amazing and so are your cards. We get cardinals to our feeders every day. They are lovely to watch. Of course they're named too. So many people in our family are bird watchers and have the cardinals. We all have names for ours. [Bunny]
