Oddball grandparents ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Tamara here with you. For this weeks post I made a shadow card with one of the great Oddball images called Oddball grandparents. I really like this sweet image and it was great to colour in. First I chose my design papers and then I started colouring. Image was stamped using Archival Ink – Jet black on 140 lbs HP watercolour paper. I often get asked which brand of paper I’m using. It’s called Fabriano – Artistico acquarello, extra white. For colouring I’m using very thin brush size 000 or -3.

Distress ink pads used to colour this images are:
skin: vintage photo
hair: black soot, hickory smoke
purse, shoes: fired brick
jacket, mug: fossilized amber, spiced marmalade
vest: broken china
pants: forest moss, peeled paint
dress: stormy sky, fired brick, peeled paint
newspaper: tea dye, black soot
grass: peeled paint

Shadow box was made with a die and then decorated using diffrent design papers, it’s 3/4″ deep.

Sentiment “GRANDPARENTS There to help children get into mischief they haven’t thoght of yet!” comes with the images.

That’s it from me today. Have a great Sunday.

Hugs, t.
