Betty Boots

Betty Boots


Hi everyone,  I hope that you're all having a lovely weekend. My weekend 
has been an eventful one having falling up the stairs (yes you read correctly up the stairs) 
and bumped my head and bruised both knees, but it could have been 
so much worse couldn't it and like my Hubby said "at least the staircase doesn't need 
repairing" and "where there's no sense, there's no feeling" he's so cheeky lol 
Seriously though, I really do think that I should be more careful given the last 
time I fell on the stairs I broke two toes and fractured my coccyx. 

Well today the housework has been put on hold on (medical grounds hehehe) 
so I've spent today colouring up one of my Betty Boots images.
I thought that I would colour her up in greyscale and add colour for her pens, 
paintbrushes and pencils, and then I thought that I could mount her after 
fussy cutting her onto a background of paint splotches to help her to "POP" 














I coloured Betty Boots in the following Promarkers 

Ice Grey 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 
Rose Pink
Lipstick Red 
Frosted Jade
Honeycomb 
China Blue 
Gold

I also used Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll for her buckle and Molotow 
Grafx white fineliner for her freckles 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

  8. Like the idea you had to grey scale the image looks brilliant against the lovely bright background and shows up her pens too.

  9. This is fab. Great colouring, and such a beautiful image.

    Hope you're okay after your fall. I'm terrible on stairs ... I even fell up the stairs at Wembley once, back in the days when they had the Horse of the Year Show there. It was when they were changing the course (showjumping) so everyone was just looking around at everyone else. It was good to provide the entertainment, lol. :o) And I fell down the stairs at a nightclub once too ... but maybe 4 inch heels and a lot of booze played a part in that one, lol. Just you rest up, no h*******k for a month, and lots of crafting, and you'll soon be all good again. :o)

    1. I'm fine now Thank you Alison just a little bruised and at the the time a little shaken up but I suppose that's to be expected (note to oneself....must learn to be more careful on the stairs because the older you get the more painful it is when you fall LOL) This image is a Betty Boots image from https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ThatCraftPlaceLtd Huge Hugz, Lorraine xx
