Hip Granny Panties

I was so excited to see Archiver’s carries some of the Our Craft Lounge line. I’ve enjoyed blog hopping with them and finally was able to pick up a set of their stamps. Granny cracked me up the first time I saw her, so she had to be my initial purchase (it was nice to have a discount store coupon as well). (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).
Sketch Inspiration ~ Our Craft Lounge August Sketch
Color Inspiration ~ Charisma Cards #33 ~ Lemon, Green and Pink The greens really gave me a work out. I don’t have the appropriate Copic to match the paper I picked out. I did the best I could and had to add a touch of purple for Granny’s hair.
Inspiration 365 Cards Day 159 ~ Setting a Scene Indoors I drew in the walls and floors and added a hanging lamp to complete the scene. 365 Cards Day 171 ~ Tuesday’s Trio: Triangle, Sticker, Button The triangle comes from the sketch, the button is to balance out the lamp and Granny’s necklace features a sticker gem. CCEE Stampers ~ Grandma Overboard My Granny went a little overboard (using the extreme zealousness definition) trying to find a pair of matching panties for her dress. She had a bit of a ‘panty party’; no white granny panties here!
