That will be quite enough of that, thank you

There’s a fun new release over at Simply B Stamps featuring an awesome witchy image drawn by Betty and some cool word art sentiments drawn by her son, Christian, my first card features the sentiment ‘Fly with me’ and the new Betty Boo image.

To make up my card I’ve followed the sketch over Feeling Sketchy, now I stuck to the sizes on the original sketch of the rectangular elements mainly because they were the size of my Nesties.  But, oh boy, do I wish I’d swapped them out for something bigger.  Colouring the image and word art when they were that small (I sized the image to 2” tall) was really hard and fussy cutting a nightmare.  I had to cut off all the lovely curly bits on Betty’s umbrella and couldn’t face fussy cutting the word art individually so just cut around it all.

The current theme at Cut It Up is twilight and I had just the perfect paper to make a twilight scene.  I added some twinkly star like embellies to add to the twilight theme as well as some die cut bats to go flying across the sky.  With my bats I’ve got things with wings so I am also entering this over at Crafty Creations.

Now the SBS DT have been having fun with this image as well as another awesome one Zombie Bride Betty and you can check out all the awesomeness over at the SBS blog or head over to the DT blogs listed below.  Come back in a few minutes to see what else I have done with Betty Boo and the other word art that comes in this fun bundle.
