Oh Betty !!!

Two posts in one day from me, arnt you lucky :D

Actually its because we have had a bit of a change round at Just Inspirational Challenges and I am now on TEAM B and this is team B's week to do the challenge.

So here is your inspirational picture for this weeks challenge

and our fantastic sponsor this week is

I used 'Scrapbooking Betty' digi stamp and you can find her here

I loved the image so much I wanted to make something using it that I could keep in my craft room, so decided to decorate a box that I use to keep scraps of paper in for decoupatch. 
I used pro markers to colour Betty, this is the first Simply Betty digi I have coloured and I am really pleased with how she turned out. I used 2 co-ordinating backing papers to cover the box lid on top and the sides and backed Betty onto black linen card.

 Once she was mounted and stuck to the box lid I added glossy accents to her eyes and the small buttons along the bottom of her dress. I used a thick purple ribbon to make a bow and secured to the box lid at a slight angle and finished off with some flat backed gems scattered around the lid.

I hope you will check out Just Inspirational Challenges blog and take a peek at my fellow DT's makes this week, and I look forward to seeing your fab entries into this challenge.

Happy Crafting
