Simply Betty Stamps - Rio

Since last Tuesday saw the release of the Simply Betty Stamps "My Kids Emo World" range I thought I would introduce you to another of the group. This is Rio - and I have carded her up to fit in with this week's challenge over at The Burtonesque Dolls - Sleepy Hollow - I've had soo much fun with this theme. For my background I used silver encore ink and the tree from SU's  Branch Out set. To get some depth I've double stamped the tree in places too. It looks fabulously shimmery IRL. For the moon I cut a circle out with a punch and used my copic liner pen to fill in some lunar details before adding some shading. Rio's pet bat is popped up on dimensionals and is flying down to meet her! To add to the moonlight shimmer I've used my clear spica pen on the moon and Rio's skirt.

The lace was coloured with a blend of copics to make it match my colour scheme and I used my spiderweb cuttlebug folder for some finishing detail. The sentiment is computer generated.

AND LOOK - no flowers and no designer paper - how long has it been since I did THAT - LOL.
