Oh to be 70 again!

When I saw this image on Art Creations Friday I immediately converted her into black and white to see what she looked like - I think I prefer her like this. I then thought she needed an amusing caption.
All my grandmother's sisters were called by nicknames such as Ruby or Chick. In fact I don't know their real names - so I imagine this lady to be called 'Button'. Isn't it funny how what you wear can influence your art work - I realised I'm wearing a cardigan decorated with buttons!
The faux buttons are punched from dyed pelmet vilene.

Great job of converting her to a stamp! She has so much character, she takes it with her in any format, doesn't she? Good work!
