Stella rocks! She may be a bit off skewed, but you can just tell by the sweet look in he eyes that her intentions are pure and true. But every now and then, she goes a little bit over the top. Sometimes she gets a bit tipsy, and ends up holding that olive instead of eating it. I'm sure that's only after like her seventh or eighth tini.
I think everyone has a favorite aunt, cousin, godmother, mentor, some woman who has touched them and looks out for them even when we're not aware. I think I've posted before that other than being a mother, my favorite role has been being Aunt Susie. I love being Aunt Susie and being able to go over the top, giving all I can, as much as I can, for as long as I can. When you give that much, sometimes you need to let loose. And every now and then, that tini glass seems to get empty faster than we think! I'm sure that's the case with Fair Godmother Stella here!
I colored Stella With an Olive on Top with my Prismacolor pencils and OMS and used Glossy Accents by Ranger on the glass to make her look like she'd really fallen into a glass. I think she came out pretty good. I'd eat that olive anyway! Could be because this stamp could have very well been called Aunt Susie with an Olive on Top!
