A Spring In Her Step

One of the things I love about Stampotique stamps is how using them and a little imagination you can make just about anything! This weeks challenge is hosted by Valerie, you can find Valerie's lovely blog here and all the challenge details here. Valerie is inviting us to use springs in our projects or to make something that springs off your creation.
My legs are often not as good as they could be, and I sometimes wish I could be more like Tigger with his springy tail! So I sympathised with Agatha Pirate and her wooden leg, I cut it off, ouch! and gave her a spring so she can boing around on the ocean waves. I didn't have a spring the right size so I got some rusty wire and wrapped it round a thin brush handle and made her spring, she doesn't look very sure about it though lol.
The stamps I used are:
Art Lives Here and Skully for the sign
The parrot is part of Cactus Buddies
Agatha Pirate has some gold embossing detail for her outfit and her own little sea shell, on a little piece of driftwood and some wire for hanging.
Thank you for visiting my little blog, and remember that just by joining in the challenge you are in with a chance of winning $30/£20 to spend at the Stampotique Online Store, Good Luck!
Wishing you a lovely day and I hope your seas aren't too choppy, Sam xxx
