Impression Obsession Summer Release Part 2!

Today we celebrate the new summer stamps from designer Gary Robertson.  Gary's art is loved by many because of the detail he puts into his images.  I know that I totally {HEART} his images!!!  For my card, I chose this gorgeous Sand Castle Pail image.  I stamped the image twice and coloured it with my Touch Markers. I coloured the sand castle and the shell separately so I could mount them on dimensional foam to make this image pop just a little more! For my background, I stamped tone on tone with the new cover a card shells. I totally love this stamp too. The sentiment is from Dina's collection!
I added a touch of fine glitter to the shell and castle to make it look as if the sun is shining on it!  Read on below to see how you can get a chance to win some stamping bucks!!!
