She's too Sexy for her Shirt! and Riley Blog Button

No worries Chickas!!!! I am most definitely NOT going to go into a whole narrative about how I always dreamed of being a Catwalk model............any thoughts of that, well hmmmm probably buried deep in the dark chambers of my do have a ballet incident that I could share though, but not today!!!!

I can't remember the name of this technique, but I do remember doing a challenge on it many moons ago on SCS. It is a very neat little technique used to draw emphasis to a main image. I have mostly seen it done with yellow highlight, but wanted pink for this little Vixen!

First, I stamped my main image on the cardstock and a second image onto a long post it note. I covered Hanna and then masked off the areas that I wanted to be gray with post it notes. I sponged Pink Pirouette ink in and around the main masked image. I then covered up the pink area and sponged Going Gray to the white areas on the side and Basic Gray to the "floor" area.

I coloured the image in with Copics. I used Paper from the K&Co. Valentine stack and some black Ribbon Trim, Flowers and centres from Petaloo. The little "Dream" charm.........maybe as In Dream I could look so good in those undies!!!! from the Dollar Store!

Do you like the little Riley Blog Button I have on my sidebar? Feel free to add it to your blog. It was created by Beth, one of the Hanna Stamp Design Team members. Here is the html code. Just copy it and add it according to the directions on your blog server.
