IO Favorite Technique Challenge

The challenge over at Impression Obsession this week is to make a card using your favorite technique. I ended up doing two techniques, tho they are quite similar. Here they are:                                                                   

IO stamps used: Love Birds Solid #D8674, Solid Oval Tag #C8179, Cherry Blossom Branch Solid #H8908, Floral Trio #B8929 and C-A-C Solid #41CC094.

IO dies used: Twig Wreath Set #DIE023-X, Butterfly Set #DIE046-A and Branch #DIE007-L.
I used two different techniques to make this card. I took the Love Birds stamp and inked it with Navy dye ink and swished it back and forth onto an acylic block.You could also use a piece of glass.  It was then stamped onto White cardstock and cut out.  It will remove some of the color.    
The second technique I used was to ink the Cover-A-Card Solid with Navy dye ink and then take the Floral Trio (uninked) and swish back and forth all over the inked surface. It again will remove some of the color and leave a neat design of the flowers. I also did the same thing with the Solid Oval Tag.
For more challenge cards and to see the products IO carries go to Impression Obsession.
