A Rose by Any Other Name

I got new Bombshell Rubber in - YAY. I got the gorgeous Rose's Portrait in and couldn't wait to color her up.
So, this is my first take on this image. I had so much fun coloring her up.  I know she is typically colored up with darker hair, but I really loved turning her into a Blonde Bombshell. It shows how versatile these stamps can be.  The roses on the bottom and top are from Recollections at Michaels, and were a little too peachy, so I added some red to them with the R24 and 27 copic, and then a little diamond Stickles.

She is colored up with the Copics in the following colors:
Y21, 23, 26, 28
R20, 22, 24, 27, 29,
G21, 24, 28
B2B12, 14, 16, 18
E50, 51, 53, R20. I used a gelly roll star pen for the glitter on the earring and the gold portion of the shawl. The fringe is gold spica, and the roses and eyes / eye shadow have clear spica on them.

Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to join in the fun with this month's Bombshell Sketch Challenge. And come back later this week to check out Ms. June's PinUp Challenge. It is sure to be a blast, and if you enter these - you could win some rubber. Just Sayin!!!!
