Pieced Bombshell

I created this card for Gina K's "You Want a Piece of Me?" challenge. It was so much fun giving this Bombshell Angel a cute outfit made from printed paper by Basic Grey. What I did first was to stamp her onto 120lb CS using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
Then I took a blender pen and removed the ink from the bottom of her original outfit that ran across her legs.
Then stamped her onto the red paper in the Ambrosia pack from Basic Grey.
I re-inked a portion of her and stamped onto the striped paper to create her top.
Then, very carefully I cut out her pants from the red.....
And her top from the striped paper. Here I cut the top a bit longer, more of a tunic length, because I didn't know if I wanted to go short or long yet.
I adhered her pants onto the original image with SNAIL adhesive.
Cut the top down a bit more and adhered that as well. I also cut a flower for her hair from the red paper as well and popped that up with a pop dot.
And here is is all finished on the card. I used my Prismacolor Markers to color her skin and hair and to add some shadows.
