Lady Be Good...

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay...my, oh, my, I'm so glad it's Friday... Because it means I'm all done with the boring stuff and the weekend is mine for the taking and I'm doing that with both hands. On Wednesday I showed you the fabulous Acey Deucy stamps I got on eBay. So, I decided that instead of just admiring them for a year or two I would ink, stamp and be very merry.

I made a Steampunk piece on Monday and a little of that metal eccentricity is still lingering. I totally love designing for Simon Says Stamp & Show but sometimes miss the thrill of the ride of being in such a great challenge.
So I'm playing along inside my own head (where there's plenty of spare room anyway...)
Played with Distress stains, inks and Picket Fence... adding details with Wendy Vecchi & Artistic Outpost stamps.
She is one inky lovely... a beautiful stamp and black ink can make a girl's day feel right. Still addicted to scraps whether it's metal, lace or thread.Added a few extra details for a touch of quirkiness and depth but still want her to shine through.
Inky splodges and water just moodling around with some random red stitching to give it a little zing!
I wasn't planning on making her, busy times... but sometimes they start talking to you and it's just so inviting.
 What's got you going at the moment...? Do Tell! There's plenty of time to join in with September's My Mojo Monthly challenge and share your inspired art with us all! Wishing you all a great weekend too. Thanks for dropping by, it would be great to hear from you... Sarah.
