Simply Betty

How much fun is this image?!  LOVE IT.  This is the first Simply Betty Stamps I've inked up... and I can't wait for more :)

I probably shouldn't have made her a redhead... she kinda blends a bit with her outfit.  See the fantabulous red velvet paper?  Vintage flocked wallpaper gifted to me from Creepy Glowbugg... LOVE IT!  It is the entire reason why I gave Betty a red outfit :)  Thanks, man!


The sentiment is great, no?  It is continued on the inside:  "around someone's throat."  LOL!  Thank you, Stamp It Crazy!  I know the feeling quite well ;)  You can't tell, but I spritzed the black base with a bit o' Copper Glimmer Mist... wonderfully shimmery.


Stamps:  Betty (SBS), sentiment (SIC)
Paper:  black (TAC), Bazzill & vintage wallpaper
Other:  Copper Glimmer Mist, border punches (MS & EK Success), misc. ribbon & jewel
Copics:  0, E000, E00, E11, G12, G14, G28, YR02, YR04, YR07, YR18, V99, R29, R35, R37


I totally screwed up coloring her eyes... I reversed the pupils and the reflections... whoops.  Those are some BIG shiny reflections in her eyes!  Oh well... eff it... I'll know next time :)

Gorgeous! I have tried quite a few times to incorporate that paper into a project, only to fail each time.I will force it into something very soon!
I love the way you colored Betty. I had to refer back to the website and DT members projects to see how they colored her eyes and such. Sometimes it's hard to decipher the lines before coloring.

I love what you've done for the colors! I'm not so sure I (or most others) would have colored those eyes either. Their sort of crazy! I think they turned out great. I would've not even known, had you not said anything.

BROL! I luv the sentiment! Hilarious!! The coloring came out well even with the red hair. The paper is so pretty and your borders are outstanding! I must get me some of those! :)
