Cranky OLD FART Back in Stock

Old Fart is BACK IN STOCK now, but you might want to hurry because this set sells out almost as fast as it goes back into inventory!  If it's sold out you can request to be emailed as soon as it comes back in stock again.

I stamped the cranky Old Fart lady with Memento ink on to white card stock and colored her (all but her skirt) with Copic markers.  I stamped the Gingham Background with pink ink on a scrap piece of white card stock then I stamped the Old Fart lady in black ink on top of that.  I cut out just the skirt portion from the gingham and glued that onto the skirt area of the Copic colored image.  
This technique is called Paper Piecing. 

I remember seeing this technique for the first time over 25 years ago and it totally blew my mind!  I could not for the life of me figure out how the stamper achieved it.  To this day it's one of my favorite techniques. :o)

For the stripey background panel I used the Farmhouse Fabric background stamp and stamped it with Versafine Clair Morning Mist ink.  I can see this stamp becoming one of my go-to backgrounds for a long time to come.

I stamped the sentiment (there are some really funny ones in this set) on a scrap piece of pink card stock and cut it at an angle.  I also added a Summer Breeze Enamel Dot  to the end opposite end.  I also added a little bit of chalk shadowing under the lady and her walker.

I stamped the Birthday sentiment with Versafine black ink.  And for a finishing touch I added some Glossy Accent adhesive to her glasses so they looked like real glasses ;o)
