Dress up your Bombshell : My way ;)

Hey Ladies, and Gents,

It's JennieWren here,  your Miss May pin up.

I thought I would share the way I like to dress up my Bombshell Angel.
She is available here

I loved Paper Dolls as a wee gal so this is kind of a "grown up" version. lol.

1: Stamp out your bombshell on a scrap piece of card

2: Cut out the shape of the dress

3: Place wrong side up on back of design paper

4: Cut out and check against your Bombshell for fit.
 If in doubt cut it slightly smaller. We can fix that later.

5. Colour your Bombshell and stick down with chosen glue.
Still doesn't look quite right huh!

6: Here is where the plan comes together.
Draw around the outside of the dress carefully with a fine liner pen.
I like to use Copic fine liner 0.3mm but use whatever floats your boat.

7: I like to add a bit of shading using a toning pen to add the illusion of folds.
Then add some glitter (if you fancy) to tie the outfit together.

Here is my finished Bombshell doing a fine impression of Dorothy from Wizard of Oz :)
Complete with papers from Graphic 45 Magic of Oz collection, and a wee Toto.

Hope you like it.  I'd love to hear your comments
