A distinguished lady of a certain age - Humor at Crafting with Dragonflies

I was my turn to choose this fortnight's theme for Crafting with Dragonflies, and I chose Humor. Let's share some smiles!


I've had this sentiment stamp from Viva Las VegaStamps for a few years, and I'm so happy to have found the perfect project for it! The distinguished lady of a certain age is one of my favorite rubber stamps from Art Impressions Stamps. I colored the image with Copics; the clothes of paper-pieced with patterned tissue papers. Her hair is covered with Flowersoft that I died gray with Copic ink. Following my mustache theme (the sentiment border is made from Recollections mustache stamps), I added a touch of white flocking on her upper lip and a touch on her chin!

The background is a DP from Love nicole that I got at AC Moore just today! I altered it with glitter sprays, an embossing folder, a SU! roller stamp, ink smooshing, and holographic glitter embossing powder.
