Still Doing Laps?

Another stamp inspired punch art project - HERE is the stamp set that I saw - from Art Impressions - "Memory Laps".  I took it down to one girl (no lap) in a chair instead of two on a sofa...

Could be used for a pregnancy congrats card and certainly on a scrapbook page.

Prego Woman:
Head - 1.25 circle
Hair - 1.75 circle near a 1.25 circle hole - sponge edges
Bangs - Part of the 1.25 circle that you punched to create the hair hole - sponge to distinguish from base hair and cut a notch.
Eyes - standard hole punch in white and black - add highlight with white gel pen
Nose - standard hole punch - sponge top with pink ink
Shirt - wide oval for belly - full heart upside down for chest - tips of word window for sleeves - all sponged
Arms - narrow heart to heart next to hole of the same
Legs - narrow scraps
Ankles and feet - Full heart next to hole of same - color in black shoes with sharpie

2.5 inch circle for chair back -outline in black
1 inch x 3 inch strip for chair seat - outline in black and draw dividing line
medium oval for chair arms - outline in black and draw center oval
black scrap chair legs

I know a mother of twins about to hatch - I think I'll finish this up for her - probably been awhile since she has "done" a lap - and very soon her lap will be FULL!

I am so glad you are creating again and the timing for this inspiration is perfect. Both my daughter-in-law and her sister are expecting, within 3 weeks of each other. This will be a wonderful encouragement card with a sentiment like "It won't be long now before you get your lap back" or something like that.
Thanks for sharing.

Love this! Can't wait to try it, but I would like to know your favorite flesh-tone paper. Alene

Alene, I STILL have a stash of blush blossom paper - retired from Stampin' Up! It lasts a long time when you only use a little for each character. The in color Blushing Bride will work (see that backside girl doing the tango) But I think it goes away in June. We will have to see if they come up with a replacement for flesh or if you have to go to a competitor.

It is such fun to see you posting again! Love the pregnant woman and I love the couch! My oldest grandchild is to have a baby any day now - my third great grandchild - and I am going to make and send her this card! Wishing you a happy day!
