Three Muses Take The Wheel


This is for Three Muses....the challenge was wheels. I instantly thought of one of my favorite stamps from Acey Deucey that I never get a chance to use. I thought of her forging ahead at the ships wheel. I used a little 4"x4" canvas painted with some OLD MM paint that I was sure was a goner but it worked. Then I used my favorite Golden color Nickel Azo Gold. Love that color!!!! The wheels are an old Judikins cube stamp. That's it I think. Can't wait to see what you did and thanks for looking!

Nan, she does look like the kind of woman who could move that ship forward using nothing more than determination. You, however, have generously equipped her with the wheels so she doesn't have to. Wonderful and original piece.
