Finally... Grumpies!

Aren't they cute?

These are the first cards I've made with my "Lil' Grumpies" set I won from Smeared Ink. They're so cute!

This one was the most "solid" character in the set so I stamped it onto some scrap paper and cut out everything but the eyes and eyebrows. I stamped it again on white cardstock.

I mixed up some dye ink on a piece of acetate (a non-stick craft mat will do) with a brayer to create a variegated effect and using the scrap paper cut-out as a stencil, I brayered the ink onto the image. I love how these came out. I can't wait to do more!

These little characters are funny, and make great cards :)

I loved watching how you did these on Saturday it was quite fascinating. I am wondering if I need a brayer now LOL!!

I think those grumpies are quite sweet - not sure what my friends and rellies would make of them if I suddenly started giving them cards made with them as they are so use to my Penny Black cuties!!
