Funny Friday with Art Impressions: AI Hamster Wheel Cubbies

Oh dear… this stamp set brings back memories!!! I can’t even begin to tell you how many years I tortured my mom by having hamsters!! I had them, my sisters had them… it was mayhem!! 

So, when I saw this Hamster Wheel Cubbies stamp and die set it was a must have!! I love how the coordinating die creates the doors, windows, and wheels for the cute little rascals to sneak in and out of!!

I started these images off by water coloring the main areas. I finished by adding extra shading with a couple of Copic markers. I like to mix the two mediums for deeper colors and additional blending.
