Make it Funny Challenge: Drink Wine and Knit

The Lost Coast Design challenge for the last half of September is "Make It Funny".  

I made a card for this one using the Early Stitch 'n Bitch stamp from Lost Coast Designs and one of the funny clear stamps from Clear Stamps at Carmen's Veranda.

I had this piece of flowered tissue paper that had always reminded me of my Grandmother's parlor wallpaper.  So I thought it would be a perfect background for my knitting ladies.  I adhered it to a piece of cream colored card stock with Modge Podge then cut it into a square -ish shape and edged it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I layered that with some kraft card stock.  

Next I stamped my ladies onto white paper with black ink and fussy cut them out.  I added a bit of color to their hands, faces, and the knitting basket and yarn with Copic Sketch markers.  I positioned my stamped image at the bottom center of my card and adhered it.  Next I stamped my sentiment with black ink onto a cream rectangle, edged it with the same Distress Ink, and affixed it above my knitting ladies.

Perfect sentiment for this fun stamp!  Come join the funny fun at the Lost Coast Portal today!
