Sealed with a Kiss

This is Bombshell Stamps' Butterfly Queen. If she looks a little different to you, it's because I added a little to her costume. That's one of the things I love about these stamps, they are like paper dolls, and you can dress them to suit your mood! As always, there's lots of sparkle here. I used Aqua, Copper and Crystal Stickles on this card. The Aqua is on her costume, the Copper is on the rest of the card, and the Crystal is in her hair and on her skirt. The paper is Chocolate Chip & watercolor from SU!, the tag is Basic Gray Aged and Confused, and the rest of the paper and the card stock sticker is Cosmo Cricket Love Notes. I stamped her in Memento Dew Drop ink in Tuxedo Black, and colored her with Prisma Pencils and baby oil. She is up on foam tape, as is the tag she is on. The Olive organdy ribbin is retired SU!, (I will be bummed when I run out), the string and grosgrain are unknown. There are many unknowns in my stamp stuff. Where does it come from? How does it get there? The answer to these questions and more coming soon...

HUBBA! Somehow I remembered an I Love Lucy episode where she was wearing a ... not a robe, what did they call those things, caftans? Anyway, it was sheer and long and she wore it over a full-skirted 50's kind of dress when she was having Fred and Ethel over. Ha! I always thought Lucy had to be pretty slinky underneath all that chaos to have captured Ricky Ricardo, ya know? Also I agree with Veronica -- you showcase these stamps for different companies and then I simply have to try to do what you did -- Creative Play has been seeing ALL of my extranneous income the last month!
