La la la la la la Lola...

All in green :)  I know that this Simply Betty's line of stamps is called "My Kids Emo World"... but I decided to give Lola a bit of gray hair today :)  


This is the first time I've colored her up, and I must say that straight hair is hard!  No hiding mistakes in a lock of curls or anything... dammit.  So needless to say, the back of this image panel looks as colorful as the front... lots and lots of marker ink and it still isn't fabulous.  BUT practice is the key, right?!


I am sooooooo diggin' the eyes, though.  I probably should have added some Glossy Accents to them, but I didn't... they look glossy already, don't they?  I love how Betty's stamp artist added eyeball highlight areas to help you color :)


Stamps:  Lola (SBS), sentiment/box (Studio G)
Paper:  white (Neenah & PTI), black (TAC), green (DCWV) cardstocks
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo
Other:  texture plate (PTI), white pen (Signo), Stardust silver glitter pen, metal trim (JoAnn's clearance!!!), ribbon (HL)
Copics:  0, BV20, BV23, C5, E000, E00, V95, V99, YG01, YG03, YG91

What do you think?  Witchy enough?
