Old Lady Moments

 This is a new stamp that I have been playing with.  I stamped it on white card, then made the background with Distress Inks, white acrylic paint, misters, Perfect Pearls (gold, mink and pearl), smooshed, sploshed, spritzed, misted & splattered.  Then I stamped onto patterned paper for the ladies and paper pieced.  I dotted some black pen to 'ground' them.  Lots of texture, and see the sparkle on the close up.  
Old ladies have fun too!  This is for a friend that I laugh and cry and play with, and we are separated during covid lockdown.  And yep, much as I hate to own it, we are old ladies on the outside and girls on the inside!

Stamp: unknown

Sentiment: Pixel Scrapper

Also:  D.Inks, Copics, white acrylic paint, Perfect Pearls (pearl gold, mink),  Sheer Shimmer
