It May Look Like Your Gramma, But They "Ain't" Her Stamps

Ok friends, here's my cheeky take on the "Sketch" Challenge {010}... I used some really fun stamps from Missy B Designs, "Doodles" and "Halloween Women". I fell in love with the whimsical and spunky attitude of these sets.... "While they may look like your gramma, they definitely aren't her stamps...", I say.

I used a Zig two way glue pen to apply a puddle of blue glue to the leotard of our sweet gramma and painted it into place with a paintbrush and then dumped on the glitter. (You have to work fairly quickly because the glue dries fast. I practiced on a couple of stamped images first.) The skin is colored with watercolor pencils. I used a very light touch of Autumn Terracotta. Perfect Pearls highlighted her ears and earrings and Stickles blinged out the headband. I shredded a white Sassy Strand to create the fluff for the bunny tail. Gramma got her "pleather" foxy mama boots courtesy of SU!'s black embossing powder, a Versamark marker and a nifty little heat gun.

Supplies Used:

Missy B Designs Stamps
Spellbinders' Nestabilities Scalloped Rectangle Die
Fiskars 1/8" hole punch
Some Office Supply Store regular hole punch
CTMH - watercolor pencils, blender pen, Sweet Leaf CS, Sassy Strands (shredded some for the bunny tail poof)
SU! black embossing powder (hot mama leather boots)
Ranger - Versamark ink, Stickles, Perfect Pearls
Stazon Black Ink (nice for watercoloring.. no bleeding)
Tree House Memories Main Street collection Papers "Oh Fudge" circles and "Flavor of the Weeks" stripes
DoodleBug Designs - Glitter (Mmmm can't get enough of that stuff!)
Papertrey Ink 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon (another terrible habit to get into)

Cute!!! Not quite sure I can wrap my brain around a "gramma" being a bunny, but it's a fun image!
