New Ai Challenge!

Hi Ai Fans!
Today over at Art Impressions they are promoting the new stamps made exclusively for Michaels in combination with Ai and Hampton Arts!
Art impressions also has a new Challenge starting today called.........
All you need to do is show the Physical stamp in your picture so we can see where you started from! It's my turn to do a "feature" using the New Ai stamps for Michaels and I decided to use the ICU / Get Well set.
So in keeping with the Challenge, here's my finished card with the original stamps I used!
I got out my MISTI (most incredible stamp tool invented), my Copic friendly ink and the stamp set. 
I arranged my stamps in the little scene I had decided on and also added my inside sentiment and pill bottles that I wanted to use as embellishments. 
I inked up the images and using the MISTI stamped them onto Copic X-Press It paper. The MISTI gives such a great stamped image and is perfect for making exact multiples of the same image.
I die cut my image using my Sizzix Big Shot and fussy cut out the pill bottles. 
Now onto the fun relaxing part.....colouring! Always my favourite part of any project!
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, R20
Hair: C1, C3, C5
Hospital Gown: BG32, BG34, BG13
Dress: R81, R83, R85
Coat: Y21, Y23, Y26
Table: C0, Silver Wink of Stella (on top)
Some of the supplies I used. I like to pick my paper first and then colour my image to co-ordinate with it.
And there you have it the finished card!
I used another sentiment from the ICU/ Get Well set on the inside as well as stamping a portion of the Nurse in the bottom corner.

Next time you are in your local Michaels store, be on the hunt for these super cute and funny stamp sets to ad to your Art Impressions collection!

Happy Stamping!
