There's a new challenge blog premiering for the first time today at Layers of Color. Their very first theme is to add humor to your artwork, using at least one stamp, and then try to share how you might gift your piece to someone.
I made this card for my son who is soon to graduate college and enter the real world. I know he'll appreciate the humor in it. For my heartfelt and really inspirational gift to him, click here.
Stamps used were River City Rubber Works (Man), pocket watch (Art Impressions), compass (Stampabilities) and background text (Hero Arts).

This is hilarious, I have to use that saying at some point. I love the combo of colors and seriousness of the image with the quickiness of the saying! You are an inspiration. Thank you so much for your entry!
