Art Impressions #32 Favorite Stamp


Hi, friends!  This week, on the Art Impressions Challenge Blog, the design team has asked us to use our favorite AI stamp.  That was one of the hardest choices I have had to make.  I thought and thought, and decided that this super get well stamp has seen a lot of ink since I have owned it.  It is just perfect for those men that land in the hospital unexpectedly.  It always seems to give them a chuckle  The stamp is # U-2394. 

After paper piecing the chair, I used Copic markers to color the rest of this fellows clothing and skin.  I cut out my pieces, and popped them up for dimension.  My papers are a digital set from Lindsay J., and was a freebie from one of the National Scrapbook Day celebrations.  I used Distress Inks to blend my edges, and added buttons with bakers twine knots.  No matter how I create with him, he always comes out great!

Thanks for stopping by.  We are expecting more flooding rains starting tonight, and I pray for those who are just getting life back to normal.  The ground just can't hold anymore, and with another 3+ inches, it has no where to go but up.  Be careful out there!
