Ever stamp without any stamps? Today my daughter Abby and a friend had fun playing with a fabulous book: Ed Emberley’s Fingerprint Drawings. Some things never go away–I remember playing with this book when *I* was a kid!
The idea is to make a fingerprint (using Stampin’ Up! Classic Pads, of course 😉 and then use a pen to add feet, eyes, etc. to turn the print into something fun. Here’s a little froggie that one of the kids created.
But of course when you’re 5 or 6, inking your fingers quickly degenerates into inking your whole hand, and then to mixing as many colors on your hands as possible…
If you’re a pristine stamper (one who hates to mess up the wood block on a stamp or the sides of an ink pad) then LOOK AWAY–you won’t like the condition of my pads after this art adventure 🙂 Hey, at least I have my reinkers handy–it will be easy to add some ink to these and get them back to their “true” colors in short order.
