I'm over EXCITED! A Brand New Challenge Blog and another New Release!

Hello again and Oh My!

Well, this is my 2nd post today.. (to those who are following along, this is the 2nd of 4 postings today so make sure you press home when you're done so you check out all of them)....but this one will not only show you another NEW RELEASE Betty Boots stamp, but also launch a new challenge blog!  WOOHOO!

The new challenge blog is.....Sugar and Betty's Challenge Blog and will showcase the fabulous Sugar and Betty stamps from That Craft Place Etsy which one of the new releases do I have for you this time.....

I present (its like the Oscars! hehe).....Copic Betty

Copic Betty is coloured in Copic's!!! lol

Top Tip...match the insert papers/colours to tie everything in :D
Wow, I do love her :D

Here's the how's:
Copic Betty is coloured with Copic's onto 300gsm super smooth card available from That Craft Place.  I hand cut her leaving a border as I wanted definition between Betty and the background.
The background is created on canvas, primed with Gesso (from That Craft Place)...I shook small amounts of Brusho's on the canvas and then spritzed with water from a height of about 18 inches!  The result is the colour explodes out across the canvas and I love the fact we have no control over it, it will go where ever it it :D
I stamped the Tim Holtz sentiment on with VersaFine black ink and then mounted it onto black then purple card stock.  The base is a 6 x 6 inch card blank.
The only other added detail is too rip and roll a few bits of the off cut canvas to make embellies!  You know how I hate waste lol, it adds detail but also looks like paintings Betty has already completed :D

Here's the close ups:
I added a few drops of Brusho's to the insert as well!

Copic Betty

Rolled and stuck on with Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue

Don't use a dye based ink as it will run into the Brusho's!

I love the mixed media look here...
