Sow's Everything?


While I was surfing the many blogs I have saved, I cam across a challenge on the Art Impression blog.  It is #19 Monochromatic/ shades of the same color.  I decided to play with some of my AI stamps.  Since I had a piece of Just Peachy, Pure Luxury card stock laying right in front of me, I went with the peachy/beige tones.

Next came my AI Sow stamp and it's saying.  I colored this little cutie with shades of Copics and added some white gel accents and Sakura glaze touches.  Cut her out with my Spellbinders Labels Ten die and did a little sponging.  Ain't she cute?  My dp is from the Basic Grey collection called Green At Heart.  I added a stacked Prima and pearls to the center for an accent.  I kept it simple.

Art Impression stamps are one of the first brands I purchased back in the 90's.  I even have my catalog from back then, and love adding to my collection. No one was happier than I, to see new stamps being released.  They always make people smile.  Hope you smiled too!

Update 6/16:  This little piggie won the challenge!  I am thrilled!

I had to do a double take when I clicked on your blog! I thought the sponged die cut you used looked like a serving platter at first with a big ole pig served up on it! LOL It really is a cute stamp now that I see it closer, but I don't have a single AI stamp in my collection! 2bad4me!
