New Bombshell Stamps - New to me at least

I just got in my new Bombshell stamps that I ordered a couple of days ago, and tonight I finally had time to actually do something with one of them. 

I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored her with Copics. Her skin is my usual E000, E00, E01 with R20 as blush / sun. Her hair is E33, 35, 37 as are part of her boots. The reds are R24, 27, 29, 59, and the blues are B12, 14, 16, 18. Once I finished coloring the main parts I went over the blue outfit with clear spica, and her hair and part of the hat. Then I added red spica on the fringe of her skirt. I added a little red spica for lips, and blue for her eyes. She has a tad of gold Spica for her eyeshadow.

Once I finished coloring her, I cut her out. I cut a circle with a Nestie, and then sponged inside the circle while it was still in the Nestie. I didn't like how that looked so I quickly added gold embossing powder and heat embossed. I cut out the scalloped ovals from red white and blue. The white I cut two the same size as the blue, and I punched holes in each blue scallop edge. Then I placed the white just barely off center on either side of the blue to give a bare hint of white. I cut the red and blue strips and then cut red stars to mimic her top. The red tinsel fringe I added to the bottom of the strips to mimic her skirt.

Once I mounted all of the stuff and stamped Howdy (deadbeat designs), I thought it was still a little bare. So I added the swirls of black crystals that I had already cut up for something else. 

She was SOOOoooo much fun to color. I loved it.  Can't wait to color another one.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you again soon.
