Burlesque Bessie - Pinup Girls



Bizzy Bec's Online Store has some new digis and this one is called Burlesque Bessie from her newest line called Pinup Girls.  There's 5 gals in this series and they are perfect for those challenging man cards.  Be sure to head on over to Bec's Challenge Blog to see some of the fab creations rest of the design team have come up with.
I found a small pad (8 x 8) of Graphics 45 paper and I love that stuff... and need to get more!  So typical of me, I use two pieces of paper and then I need more, more, more!  The flowers are also Graphics 45 and that was a wise purchase for me because I really don't have any papers or embellishments to match with it except black.  The little bit of fringe is a roll of fibres I bought recently - looked for feathers but couldn't find any but I don't mind this.  I coloured the image with Copics, sponged Tim Holtz Antique Linen around the outside to shade and anchor it.  Then I went 'into the zone'... I was in my element with Stickles on everything!  Black on the hat and shoes, red on her outfit, startdust on the gloves & stockings and finally a bit of yellow for the spotlight.

Wow!! This is amazing! I love the papers. I guess I'll have to go shopping for this 6x6. Your coloring and design are outstanding and of course the stickles finish her off perfectly.

Hey! I love the sparkle on this one! Isn't it great to see how we all use the different images!! My stickles was Frosted Lace.. I love how the camera flash caught it all perfectly! Over the pale chalked colour it did come out nicely - it doesn't show up well on darker colours, take care ♥
