SOS: Not your mom's card!

Happy Tuesday, and thanks for visiting for another Shopping Our Stash challenge!  I am the hostess over there this week, and I've selected the theme "Not your momma's card"-- I want to see something that wouldn't go to a proper lady!  (Actually, that might be your momma, but my momma loves off-color humor on a card!)

Here is my card this week:

Supplies and notes:
  • Flo NZ Craft vintage lady stamps inked with Ranger Archival in Jet Black then stamped on Strathmore watercolor paper
  • Women's hair watercolored with my old college Loew-Cornell watercolors; skin colored with Spectrum Noir FS3; dresses inked with DOx in Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron
  • Sweet sentiment written with a Jane Davenport brush pen dipped in some DOx: Seedless Preserves and Picked Raspberry.
  • Panel mounted onto a Core'dinations cardstock
The stash-supplies I used on this card is mostly about a year old (not too old), but the stashy-part of this project is that the main panels were started in July and just sitting on my desk, shuffled from one part to the other... it is such a good feeling to, like, give something life!

I am looking forward to lots of laughs this week, so please link up at Shopping Our Stash-- loosen up and join the fun!
