Hey everyone, this is actually my first post on the site! Wink
 
 I've been on a mission to buy old thrift store purses and remake them into more rockabilly-esque creations. This one is pretty simple. It's a Bettie Page drawing on an old patent purse.







Thanks for looking!!! Cheesy

Surprisingly, it was just good ol' permanent markers.  Smiley
