I'm Bedazzled!

Happy Hump Day bloggers!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
We the Dude & Dudette's have been given a week off from 
Dude Time Doodles this week as there is no challenge but....
Here is the card I have to share with you today!

The image is Bedazzled Beth!
She's a total knockout don't you think? 
I love her little 'familiar' in the form of a cat too!
Beth is from Dude Time Doodles!!! lol
If you entered the BCA challenge at Link Up For Pink
You might have been lucky enough to get her for free!
She's perfect for Halloween & especially for a Halloween Birthday!

Such attention to detail, just look at those killer heels! 
I coloured Beth up with a selection of promarkers & flexmarkers
then distresses the edges & inked them.
I added some Diamond Sparkles for a few highlights!
Must say they look a bit green in the photo but it was the only way 
I could capture the sparkle!

The sentiment is from a free sheet by Caz & was lying 
just beside me at the right time!
The ribbons & buttons were from my stash
The gauze was salvaged from work  as it hadn't been used
& was about to go in the bin as it was past it's use by date.
It started out white but I attacked it with a black promarker
et voila! Inky fingers!! Lol, you can still see the odd wisp of white!

The base card is orange & I matted the DP, another freebie from
the set by Michelle Stone,& the image onto black paper.

I lightly decorated the inside too! 
I love doing this as I feel it gives the card balance & looks 
a bit more exciting than a plain old insert!
Thanks again for stopping by!
