Cardstock- WhiteBirthday Card designed by Tracy McLennon featuring Impression Obsession and Chameleon Color Tone Pens | Creative Scrapbooker MagazineI stamped my Impression Obsession stamps using Ranger Archival Ink- Jet Black onto white cardstock and added colour using Chameleon Color Tone Pens and Chameleon Colour Tops. Birthday Card designed by Tracy McLennon featuring Impression Obsession and Chameleon Color Tone Pens | Creative Scrapbooker MagazineFussy cut out the coloured images.Birthday Card designed by Tracy McLennon featuring Impression Obsession and Chameleon Color Tone Pens | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine I created a blended background using Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks and a blending tool. I also stamped a couple more images from the stamp set, again using the coordinating Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks. This gives the images a little less definition and keeps them more, background detail. Birthday Card designed by Tracy McLennon featuring Impression Obsession and Chameleon Color Tone Pens | Creative Scrapbooker MagazineI adhered my fussy cut pieces to the card using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Thin 3D Foam Squares and regular 3D Foam Squares. I like that little bit of difference in dimension.

Crafty Tip: I get the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Thin 3D Foam products in black and regular Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam products in white. That way when I need to grab adhesive quick, I know what I’m reaching for. Birthday Card designed by Tracy McLennon featuring Impression Obsession and Chameleon Color Tone Pens | Creative Scrapbooker MagazineI added another layer of white cardstock with a distressed edge to the card and adhered that to the card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Foam Tape. Another fun touch was to add the burlap string across the card.
I had added the sentiment to the card front using ranger black embossing powder.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
