Toasting a birthday!

oh da Bellas!!! oh sooooooo addictive.... Bella's pants were created by stamping Stampin Up (SU) retired Just Jeans with SU turquoise onto caribbean cardstock, then stamping Bella onto that concoction and cutting her jeans out...gluing into place with a Glue Pen. Bella's shirt was colored in with a SU pumpkin pie marker, then colored in with the glue pen, then dusted with an ultrafine glitter. Glossy Accents were delicately applied to her martini glass - she's drinking a dirty martini - ....I love olive juice - sodium freak I am I daresay!! LOL!! Hair: SU caramel and cocoa markers, then overlaid a bit of brown Glaze pen to highlight. My Big Bella Dental Secret: OK it is just a tip...I tried outlining her mouth with pink, red, it just never looked right to me. So, I colored her face in with su blush marker (I'm waiting on the Copic markers from the A Muse site! - com'mon UPS man!!! LOL!) then used a white Glaze pen (or a white Souffle pen) and colored inside the black outline of her open mouth. Adds dimension and that splash of oooooh - purtty white pearlies! VSL (Valerie Stangle Layout) - who else??? :-)
Me and My Big Ideas paper; background is cardstock from Marco Paper - great stuff there...A Muse birthday sentiment; May Arts polka dot ribbon. Thank you for looking!
