This Week At Art Impressions......


The theme for AI's challenge #29, is Summertime.  I created a background scene and then used 3 of my Art Impression stamp.

I-1240  Norm
BB-1486  Buzzin Fly
E-2619  I'm retired

All of the papers are from a paper pack by Marcella called Clove.  It works well for masculine cards.  Coloring is done with Copic Markers.  Sponging was done with VersaMagic inks.

How can you not smile at these stamps!  Hope you are having a great start to your week.

Mary Anne,
Too funny! I love your background and the sentiment and guy are just too funny.
PS; I received my order from Whimsy Stamps when I got home @6 pm.
I quickly cut the border die just to see how it would work and it is beautiful and cut through Gina's paper like butter. I can't wait for you to see it!
