Rocking the Bombshell March Sketch

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this sketch. I will definitely use it again!

So, I got A Pirate's Life several weeks ago. She is so wonderful... and so fun to color. I have colored her up a couple of times, but haven't  put her on a card yet. Once I colored her up in these colors I KNEW what I was going to be doing for this sketch. 

I used DCWV Black Currant Paper for all the DP and CoreDinations paper for the purple. The black is AC.  For the lovely Piratess I used an Out of the Box technique where I cut out her legs and then used an Oval Nestie to cut out the rest. Then I used C0 and C1 with the airbrush and added some grey smoke to the background.

For the main ladies I used the following colors:

RV91,93, 95, 99
C3, 5, 9, 5, 7
E11, 13, 15 for skin
E17, 18 for hair

The gold is gold spica.

I am not sure why, but I ADORE how the RV colors turned out in this outfit. I haven't used these colors a lot, and I have no idea why... cuz they are so pretty.

I hope that you take a hop over to the Bombshell Stamps Forum and check out the Sketch Challenge. I promise this sketch was SO VERY FUN to use!

Will see you all here later this weekend. Hope you come back by!
