Bellarific Bombshell

Happy Bellarific Friday!!!

Did you play along this week? I hope so, cause I was the sketch hostess. I really LOVE to see how everyone interprets the sketch. For my card I decided to use Betty Bombshell...she's such a doll!

I started by stamping Betty with Memento Tuxedo Black then I coloured her with copics and added in the ocean behind her. The beach pail is popped for dimension and I added a little Glamour Dust to her wings. Then I used my fun clear Glaze pen (Paulabella's the one who turned me on to this little gem) on her glasses and the red tube. I had added some white gel pen to the tube then put the glaze pen over top...wrong!!! The glaze pen caused the white gel pen to bleed and I worked with a toothpick to keep the white in a straight-ish line...cause I really didn't want to start over. So I just wanted you to know that the glaze pen will cause the white gel pen to bleed, so be careful...other than that though, I LOVE the clear glaze pen!!!

I cut out Betty with my long rectangles Nestabilities and layered her onto a scallop of chocolate. The patterned papers are My Mind's Eye Pretty Please and I layered them onto baja blue before adhering them to the white card base. I layered a few Primas and secured them with a button then tucked them under the image panel, as per the sketch.

Don't forget to pop over to Bloggabella to see the rest of the submissions. I'll be stalking the blog just waiting for Em's post cause I'm so excited to see what everyone did with the sketch.
