Just one for the weekend...!

Hello Friday Lovers,
Hope everyone is doing okay and enjoying a little weekend joy. I wandered down to the shops after work for a quick meander and peek at the Festive windows, but realised I'm still waiting for a D in the month. Although I did get my first Christmas card today!!! (Thanks very much indeedily, Tracy!)
Tomorrow it's a 'working arty' day for me, getting on with commissions and DT work. All fabulous but with deadlines too...  So just for tonight a quick tag to entertain the fingers and ink-pads. I'm playing along with Linda's Grungy Monday which I never get done on the said day! It's a masking, spritzing, shiny, inking thing this week. See Mr. T on stage with another retro show here.
I had to be little a bit inventive as I don't possess a single re-inker. Blush!!! They're on my toilet roll long wish list somewhere as my ink-pads are feeling slightly thirsty. Anyway, I improvised with a mist of water, drops of Lettuce and Meadow Color Wash and a good dash of Forever Red Perfect Pearls and rather like my own recipe! Then it was an exuberant stamping frenzy, followed by good old distressing, random staples, and gold thread.
And just one rusty metal corner, created with uber over heated Distress Powder and Alcohol ink.

As said, just a little playtime. I'm off to join hubby on the sofa for once, enjoy a Friday night of doing nothing and watch Children in Need on the BBC for entertainment... Make your weekend a good one and I'll be back on Monday. Cheerio and farewell my lovelies.
Sarah.

It may well be improvisation but it's a fab effect - love it! But oooh, you need those reinkers - much easier for craft mat work and it's so nice to have a juicy inkpad!
