Swine Flu?

At first I was really stumped when a friend asked me to make a poster type thing for her that was related to the Swine Flu. How on earth was I going to stamp something that large? But of course, digital stamps are perfect for especially that! Not only that, but I had already purchased Mo's Swine Flu stamp.

I printed the image as large as I could on a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of card stock and coloured it with Copic Markers. This had to be the largest image I ever coloured, LOL. Then, I wadded up little pieces of tissue and glued them atop the piece. To frame it, I stamped several pieces of Kraft Paper with a woodgrain background stamp. Those were loosely angled around the 'poster' and I added a few brads, to simulate nails.

The Stamps:
S5100 - Woodgrain Pattern from Hero Arts
Swine Flu from Mo's Digital Pencil Shop

Wishing you many happy stamping hours! Isabelle

You are so clever! Love how you made the wooden frame, which is the perfect touch for this cute image. Great use of tissues too! I've had a few go through the washing machine that I could have given you - pre-shredded! LOL
