Blonde Bombshell


What a fun card this was to make!  It is Whimsy's Blonde Bombshell rubber stamp designed by Kenny K.  So quick and easy to colour because there really isn't a lot of colour on this.  I shaded her dress with some light grays, some yellows for her hair and then the skin.  A glitzy starlet like this of course needs some sparkle so I added some Stickles Stardust glitter.  The button is from Ribbon Girl (isn't that a pretty little bit?) and the feathers are from the stash.  The paper is from Basic Grey's Little Black Dress collection and the flowers were cut with CC Design's 5 Point Flower die.  The sentiment is also from Whimsy and is from the Film Strip sentiments set.  I wanted to use it on vellum but did not have any Stazon ink so I simply stamped it on paper and snipped the ends off.  I was also lucky enough to have this published in Whimsy's Inspirations Magazine issue 12.  You can view the shorter free online version here or purchase the full printed version in the Whimsy store.
