Grandma Goes Overboard!

Don’t get worried…it’s not a headline!

This is my CCEE challenge card for today… (host Cindy Motherway's challenges based on the popular 60's song The Birds & The Bees.)

Let me tell ya about the Birds and the Bees
And the Flowers and the Trees
And the Moon Up Above
And a Name I Just Love!

Notice the last line she changed…this is our CNFS (catchy name featured stamper), Grandma Overboard on SCS.

I also combined it with SCS’s Technique challenge today, Painted Grid. I’d never done this before, it was fun! overboardAfter coloring my image and masking, I took Magic Mesh and wrapped it around my brayer then rolled it in acrylic paint and rolled over my image. (first I did her top, then I masked the entire image… airbrushed the background and brayered)

TLC235 Grandma Overboard 

The image is from Art Impressions…I just love these old gals! Paper from DCWV and I faux’d the layers with a Copic marker.
