Betty Page

     This month's Bombshell Blog hop is a tribute to Betty Page, the most famous pin-up girl of all time. Now, if you have arrived here from Stempelientje's Blog, you are on the right track.  If you have just joined the hop and would like to see the entire tribute start at the Bombshell Blog and work your way through.  I promise, you will be glad you did.

     I went with something not to risque, but you can definitely tell it is Betty - note the famous Betty Bang.  Going through a vast quantity of photos for inspiration, I noticed she seemed to really like leopard prints so I incorporated that and her favored black into my card.

     Can you believe this card started out with lavender and dark purple leopard print paper.  Yep, I wanted leopard print but that was all I had.  I went over the entire sheet with walnut Distress Ink and then used a black marker to fill in all the spots.  Let me tell you, I really didn't enjoy that part, but I am glad it worked.  The black strip behind the focal image is embossed with a leopard print as well.  The image of Betty was created using the Bombshell Angel, I just changed her hair a tad.

      I had created another card for this challenge but it was just too naughty to use here, so I guess you'll just have to wait to see it posted later over on the forum.

     Now, I am going to send you on your way to your final stop on this blog hop, Kat's Tales of Stamping where she has a fab card just waiting for you.
