Bombshell Monthly Sketch

Hi Bombshell Fans!!  Here with you today for December's Sketch Challenge over at the Bombshell forum.  I've stamped my beautiful piratey Bombshell in Momento ink and colored her with my Copics.  This gorgeous lady is from A Pirate's Life set.

I have paper pieced her dress, belt, right arm and head.  I did all of this so that the image has a realistic look.  I hadn't planned on piecing her entire head.  I knew I had to do her right arm as it sits on top of the dress and in order to make it look real, I stamped the dress, then stamped another arm, colored it in and added it on top of the dress.  Well then it made her head and hair look sunken so I stamped another head, colored it, fussy cut it and added it on top of everything and it looks great! 
I used my oval doily Die-namic and Crown border from MFT as accents threading some sweet baker's twine through the holes in the oval as an added visual touch. 

I hope you enjoy and have been inspired to come create with us right HERE
