Impression Obsession "Me Day" challenge

The challenge over at Impression Obsession this week is "Me Day" That means any Impression Obsession stamps used to show how you would spend a day just for you.

Well, I live in the country and I like nothing better than being outside in my flower gardens. So I chose this image, H-1157 Sunflower Barn.  I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Cryogen paper.  Copics used:
Barn - E95, E97, E99, E43
Sunflower - Y17, E93, E95
Leaves - G40, G21, Y15
Fence posts - E43
Barnyard - G40, E50, E51

The great thing about the Gary Robertson stamps that Impression Obsession carries, is all the shading is part of the stamp.  All you really have to do is color the stamp, it does all the work for you.  I started to look for fancy paper and card stock to dress up my card but I decided the image is perfect all on it's own.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

Sandy -- stunning. Most impressive is the coloring and the use of white space -- it sets the image off perfectly!
