AI You're how old?

 Hey Friends, I got my first Art Impressions stamp set. Here she is! These stamps sets are so funny! This one came with a sentiment that says "At our age, we need glasses, lots and lots of them" which I stamped on the inside. Since I like wine, I thought I would use this cute stamp a lot. 
These stamps are large and I always struggle with coloring large areas like the couch. I did the best I could with the shading, just doing sections of the couch but I need more practice. I wanted to texturize it with a piece of towel or cloth but was too lazy to go find one!
I colored her with bright colors, kinda like, Peg Bundy would wear, LOL! The wine glass and her glasses have Glossy Accents on them. The card is simple, just a chevron embossing folder, ribbon and sequins. I used last weeks Seize the Sketch but that challenge is over now.
