April Bombshell Hop!

This month the fabulous Alison chose an awesome theme for the monthly hop…an homage to Bettie Page!

For my project I was inspired by some of the jungle photos that the Queen of Pinups posed for.  Meow!

I used the A Pirates Life set from Bombshell Stamps for my card.  I drew the leopard spots on myself.



More details…I used hemp twine to make my vines.  Background paper from Create with TLC.  Image colored with Copics – C0, C5, 100, E00, E000, E13, E15, YG05.

Thanks for looking!

Your next stop on the hop is Susie

Here’s the full hop list, just in case you need it…

Wow!!! I LOVE what you did with the pirate wench. Gorgeous coloring and great job with those leopard spots!

The paper and the "vines" are perfect!
