It's Not All Black and White

Check out my Surfer Granny!

Is she not the coolest? I can't wait to play with her some more. And she came in a little acrylic set for $2.50. Looks like she's sold out right now, but there are a few choices still in stock here.

I just plopped granny and the sentiment on an acrylic block together and stamped once, with Graphite Brilliance ink. Then colored with my Copics. Her surfboard has a fresh coat of wax, otherwise known as Sakura Glaze pen. And her shades are covered in Sakura GellyRoll glitter pen.

Layout courtesy of Jen's sketch challenge, here. Sorry, I moved it around a bit.

Stamps: Only a Kid Once (Inkadinkado)
Paper: celery, chocolate (SU); white (Papertrey Ink); patterened (MAMBI)
Ink: graphite Brilliance; Copics-B00, C1, E31, E00, YR31, YG31, RV34, R29
Accessories: swiss dots embossing folder (Cuttlebug); glaze and glitter pens (Sakura); rhinestones (Darice); dimensionals
