Scarlett the Teacup Girl all Blinged up!

OMG! That is about all that could come out of my mouth when I set my eyes on these little teacup green bean babies! This little doll is called Scarlett. Aren't they JUST the cutest things EVAH!!!!!!!!!! And hair! So many fun hairs to color! Did I ever mention that when I was a girl I wanted to be a hairdresser! YUP! I would even experiment on my friends...clearly, I had very trustworthy friends to let me cut their hair! My second occupation of choice was a grocery store cashier {insert really confused scrunched up face here}...why? Well because I was obsessed with pushing buttons! Good thing I never ventured down that road now that everything is bar-coded! LOL! At lease as a programmer I get to type all day so I guess that is kinda like pushing buttons!


Let's get on to the card details...which I am sure is why you are really here! What do ya think of that hair! I'm VERY proud of it, if I do say so myself! Lots of light feathery strokes created the smooth area and lots dots softened those puffy pom pom ponies. I used the following copic markers for the hair:
E30, 31, 41, 42, 33, 35

Then came the teacup. I so wanted to make this card match the lemonade Basic Grey paper but copic does not have a lot of yellows that I like...too bright or something....so I coloured the teacup with a base of Y0000 and when it was dry, I went over it with prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

Finally there was the bling, because that is what this challenge was all about, wasn't it? So to finish it off I added some crystals to the flower centers and went over the flowers in the lemonade paper with spica copic pens. The pretty yellow die cut is a spellbinders lattice border and even it is pretty blingy for a die cut!

There you have it...my version of bling! Don't forget to peek in on Emily's blog later today to see what the other babe's and sistah's have in store, and leave a comment for your chance at some bella bucks!
