Embracing my inner Betty

I discovered Simply Betty Stamps a few months ago purely by chance and I love them!  There’s a goth inside me who never really came out, I think my fear of all things creepy kept her locked inside.  So the Simply Betty stamps with their fun, quirky and sweet Gothic inspired looks really appeal.

Betty has a challenge blog, with the delicious title of Simply Challenged Challenges and their first challenge is to embrace your inner Betty.  Loving the stamps I couldn't resist but do an entry.

I combined my entry with a sketch from this week's RAQ's challenge over at the Cricut MB and chose the Scrapbook Betty as my inner Betty.  I coloured her with my Copics and added some highlights with Stickles, Smooch and Liquid Pearls.  I finished her off with a coat of Liquid Glass as I love the way it makes stamped and coloured images pop and shine.

I used my Cricut Everyday cart to cut images of the Cricut machines I own and some tools, once I assembled these I added details with Liquid Pearls and my Copics (things that were too small to cut properly at the 1” size I cut these at).  The sentiment was written on my Cricut too using the same cart and gel pens – it is so true about me, I generally order a box full of paper each month!

The background paper is from Webster’s Pages and the mini stacks are cut from a Cosmo Cricket Mini Deck.  The mushroom brads are from Eyelet Outlet, being a ’shroom they were the obvious choice for paper weights.

Thanks for stopping by!

Edit: I was so excited to get a top three placing for this card from the team at Simply Challenged Challenges!!
