Betty Bombshell

How many of us would just LOVE to have a bod like Betty Bombshell...I know I would...and I do, if you shift some of the weight around. LOL!

Despite the fact that I don't look like her, I do LOVE her. But she is pretty fair, so I hope she smathers on lots of sunscreen! Now, there is another difference between me and Betty...my European olive complexion does not need a 30spf sunscreen!

If you are still with me, I coloured Betty with my Copics. but used pencils/gamsol for the sand and water. The sun was done by leaving the Nestie in place and sponging on some yellow. As I was looking for paper to match this image I almost feel off my chair when I stumbled upon this Basic Grey Offbeat....It looks like little tubes. And to make it even more perfect it was only coincidence that I coloured the tube she is holding yellow! I rarely will pick paper first and colour later so when something like this happens I get a little giddy.

To complete the image I used Glamour Dust glitter on her wings and accented with Bella Dots!

With all the snow we got here yesterday I think I just gonna keep looking at this card and wish for some warmer weather!

One more thing. I've added a link to all the Bellarific Babes on my sidebar so if you are a Bella fan (like who isn't???) check in with them often for more Bella inspiration!

A very cute card - love the colouring as usual. Your DP is perfect for your card. I can relate to Betty but I ain't no bombshell. Can't wait to see what you come up with next.
