Hello, Stampin' Addicts!
Today's card features one of the five new clear stamp sets by Art Impressions that are licensed through Hampton Art and are now carried at Michaels. (If you want to see all five sets, check out the Art Impressions blog here.)
My mom retired two weeks ago, so I'm thinking of sending her today's card in celebration of her finally earning a well-deserved rest. The geezers are from the His and Her Campers clear set, but the sentiment is from the His and Her Flying High set.
Gamsol Alert! I absolutely stink at using Gamsol on my colored images because I always end up wiping out all of my depth, but I get good results on my backgrounds!
S U P P L I E S
Cardstock: Bazzill; Clear Stamp Sets: His and Her Campers and His and Her Flying High (Art Impressions); Media: ink, Spectrum Noir colored pencils, Gamsol; Tools: paper cutter, scoreboard, bone folder, corner rounder, scissors
