This little granny just cracks me up! I just love this set by Gina K. It is so me!!! Gina K had some new stamps released last night and some challenges that went along with the party so here is my first one based on sketch challenge #3 as well as last weeks Ways To Use It challenge ~ Polka Dots! I have to bulk a few challenges together because I really want to do them all but that is just impossible! Here is my card ~
I wanted Granny to have a cool lookin' car so I dug through my scraps and found this old We R Memory Keepers embossed flower paper. I used my Nestabilities to die cut the top scalloped circles. I used Basic Black cardstock for the bottom scallop. The base of my card is Basic Black with a mat of another old piece of patterned paper by Lasting Impressions. The stamp set is by Gina K and is called You know you're old when.... I got mine from Michelle ~ Stampers Dream but I do notice that she does not have it in stock right now. See, it is very popular!!! LOL!!! The white ribbon is May Arts and I got that from Lindsey and the green and pink polka dot ribbon was from Michael's. BTW, don't forget that Lindsey is having a sale which ends today! She has tons of stuff marked down 25-35% off! Now, on with my card!
I LOVE the focal image. I had so much fun doing this part. I stamped Granny on Whisper White cardstock using Basic Black ink. I stamped her again on the floral paper and again on the polka dot paper using Basic Black ink and then I used Black Stazon to stamp on an old embellishment package that was laying on my desk (this was for the windshield) and one more time on some old Architexture (EK Success) thin silver sheet metal.
The first thing I cut out was the car from the floral paper. The next thing I cut out were just the seats from the polka dot paper. I then cut the "windshield" out from the embellishment bag (think window sheet here). I then cut out the bumper, wheels and antennae base. Before I glued all these parts down, I colored Granny and inside the card (a light shade of blue) using my Prisma Color Pencils and Mineral Spirits. I then used my Quickie Glue Pen to glue all the parts on. I used the same pencils and Mineral Spirits to color the tires, road, grass and sky. I added a few weeds using my Green Galore marker. Here is a close up of Granny!
I love how the windshield turned out! Super easy and free! Don't throw those packages away. You won't need window sheets!!! I colored Granny's hair using a bluish purple as well as silver. Remember that song by Ray Stevens ~ Little Blue Haired Lady? That song is so funny and OLD, just like GRANNY!!!
I hope you are all having a great day and I will be back tomorrow!!
Thanks for stopping by!
