SBS Release day,Yay!!!

Introducing the new line from Simply Betty Stamps  

"Mythical Teens"

These are so adorable and the fun and fantasy Betty has given us is sure to spark some creative ideas!  For my project I put together another book that I rescued from a trash bin and oddly enough it was an old art book.  Here is what it looks like now.....

My cover using "London Nymph, Lola Fairy and 2(I reversed 1) Miller Fairy Boy".  I painted the cover of the book with purple acrylics.  While it was drying I colored my fey with copics.  I clear heat embossed all the wings a number of times as well as the sentiment.  Then it just became a matter of the embellishments.  A pendent from a necklace, placed atop a paper flower became my closure.  the spirals were cut from a designer paper(that was not my most fav.), but I liked the spirals.  The blue is a gift package topper with a bead added to the center.  Hope you like my cover.
Just a close up of my colors.

Introducing "Betty Fawn Queen, Jude Faun Prince and Chris Faun King"  I colored these with copics before I had any idea of what my page was going to look like.  After coloring I kept picturing a May pole dance, so that is what I created.  The original book pages are showing I just used 3 different ink pads to "color" the background then I stamped grass and blue flower silhouettes along the bottom.  My May pole is just ribbon and a bamboo skewer.  The flowers are all from my stash and then come the music notes from an old book.  This is a journal page.......
My hidden journal spots :)

Just Close Ups

Here we have "Christian Merboy and Siren Rio".  For this page I created my own designer paper with pool party and midnight muse inks from stampin up as well as a sheet of bubble wrap.  I colored my merfolk with copics and just played with some stamping.  Can you tell where my pockets and tags are????
