Art Impressions Challenge #24


Good morning!  This week the Art Impressions Challenge is called Show Me The Bird!  After going through all of my stamps, not one A.I. bird was to be found.  I even tried bidding on one on Ebay, hoping to get it here before the deadline, but I lost.  I decided to do a card anyway, using some of my unmounted stamps.  I had a blast making this, and it will be for our best friend John, who had a stroke.  He was released from rehab yesterday and will begin out-patient therapy next week.  He is working so hard, and we are proud of him.

I started with a white base card, and started building layers.  My DP is from DCWV.  Coloring was done with Copics. My puffy clouds in the back are an Art Impression stamp.  The rooster and feed sack are from Rubberneckers Stamps.  The sun with clouds is an unknown.  My sentiment is from Mark's Finest.

Okay, I am off to work.  Please have a good day!
