I look exactly like this!


Just wanted to put that out there, and you can't see me, so who's to argue? Actually, 20 years and three sons ago, I did pretty much look just like this. Since most of you didn't know me then, you can't argue about that, either! NEENER! DH, if you are reading this, it would be very much in your best interests to agree wholeheartedly! Alright, seriously now, don't you love this stamp? Bombshell has a whole line of stamps in WWII nosecone/tattoo styles, and I fell in love with them the first time I saw them. This set is called Bombshell Angel, and she comes with a little angel, a little devil and several other supporting stamps. She is a blast to watercolor, and even someone with my limited skills can make her look good. I think it would be fun to paper piece her swimsuit or make a skirt for her, thus turning her suit into an evening gown. The possibilities are endless! Keep checking back for more of her, her cowgirl friend, and Lady Luck, all of whom will be making appearances here regularly!

Paper: SU! Basic Black, Watercolor & Mauve Mist, MME Kaleidoscope

I knew you looked like that all along, Carla! I could just sense it. Such a Betty Grable (Gable?) pose ... I love vintage swimsuit/model poses & calendars. The polka dot ribbon, of course, has also won my heart.
