Simply Betty

The very first challenge at Simply Betty Challenges has started, I love Simply Betty images although I only have one lol. I've used her to make this card

The challenge theme is a photo inspiration - how fab are these socks??

Betty Summer is coloured with promarkers and matted on some black card. To create the background, I brayered dye inks from a kaleidacolour pastels ink pad on some coated card and then stamps and ink blog (from Stamp it Crazy) randomly over the top. To finish off I found some colourful bobbly trim in my stash for the corners.

I'm also entering Betty in the  following challenges:
The Artistic Stamper: Sing a Rainbow (ihave to confess I tried to brayer a rainbow but it all went horribly wrong, after several  disasters I totally gave up and went for stripes lol)
Papertake Challenge: Photo inspiration (love those colours!!)

Thanks for calling by today, I hope your week has got off to a good start
