Burlesque Betty

Hello and happy day to everyone.  I hope you are keeping warm and safe in this awful snowy weather.  My card for today features the fabulous image Betty Burlesque from SimplyBStamps.Net and she is gorgeous.


List of Materials used to make this card:

Purple 6" x 6" cardstock for base and Spellbinder mounts and Die Cuts.
Wonderful image as listed above coloured using Promarker Pens and detailed with my fabulous Pencils.
Image is printed onto watercolour card and a distress ink detail has been added round the image to try and produce a spotlight 'glow'.  I have also tried to colour the image as if she was in the centre of a spotlit area.
Pearl swirls, flowers, Tulle ribbon, cameo and detail are from my stash.


I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges:
