Thanks to our Teaparty Hostesses this month! Sue, I was intrigued to see you were struck by the expressions on contestants on the Voice. You challenged us to use 'Face Time' faces this month. In thinking of all the faces I've used through my gallery, it is this Stampers Anonymous woman, I've created art with the most. Her wrinkles were earned through living life as it came. Probably with not lots of frills.
I am editing to add a link to the last time I'd used this image Mother's Day Card I have this back in my collection as I came across it as well as treasured box of correspondence in my Mimi's home.
She needed the awesome 3-d leaf EF from Sizzix. Those beefy leaves with deep veins. I love the texture they add. She is stamped with the Adirondack 'Pesto' ink, lips colored with a Copic marker and then a cherished piece of vintage Bali raw silk trim given to me by a fellow artist many years ago. It's just perfect to spotlight those laugh lines, tear lines, and smile lines.
The sentiment is from a Tim Holtz paper sticker booklet. Great Things do take time. It's work to craft a happy wrinkle...ask me how!
Thanks so much for stopping by.

i've never seen her before, i don't think. i should send you a picture of the painting my Dad did of his grandmother when he was 16. His attention to her wrinkles always astonished me. And I would bet she wasn't that old. I don't remember her at all. I see 'leafy' arrived. Yay. This is wonderfully wonderful.

What a wonderful face, Susan, love the expression on her long lived face and that you added some lippy! The fabulous green embossed bg and green silk trim looks terrific! This sure is a great stamp to have. One of us Teapotters will be lucky to receive this~
