Wednesday Stamper -Growing Old

As far as stamps go, I only have these word stamps that are suitable for this week's theme, Growing Old. This ATC, is a picture I took of my friend, Colette preparing for her Son's Wedding. Alongside her is her daughter, Margaret & Grandson, Peter. 3 generations of family so close nothing could get between them. She tells me it is wonderful to grow older having the small child she once held grow into a beautiful woman & hold a child of her own. Who is now a strapping lad of 21! Honestly she just doesn't look 70! Its the Seychelles blood, the mediteranean diet.
I love this photo. Background is inked with blues & an over ink of gold. Edged purple.

she looks great! I love that she is embracing the fact that her children are all grown, when most of us don't ever want to get old, right?

Great idea for this theme (I am stumped at the moment!) Thanks for your comments on my blog too - I love the effect you achieved on the water colour paper but I must admit I opened up a new Versafine stamp pad so I would get a nice dark ink look! I just love those inkpads.
