Grumpy Gran Card by Elisa Ablett


Hi everyone, 

Elisa here from the design team for Ink Art Designs creating another cheeky/snarky card along with mixed media products.

I love to gel print and sometimes I have a fair few prints left over that just sit there and I found this perfect sized print that had a great print and colour just waiting to use on a card.

So to add to my gel print I added some washi tape and a few resist chipboard stars from my stash along with a hand coloured 'coffee' stamp from Lost Coast Designs. Coffee (aka..Grumpy Gran) was just perfect for the front of a card along with a snarky saying..

I used watercolours and watercolour brush pens to colour my stamped image and once dry I fussy cut my grumpy gran out and added her to my card front. To add a bit of depth to my stamped image, I added a bit of shadowing to her outline using a black watercolour stabilo pencil.

Here are the products and links from the Ink Art Designs Store:-
