I had a lot of fun with this image. I knew when I first saw her that she needed to be pink. Of course, those of you who know me well, know that pink is my favorite color and I do a lot of my cards with pink tones. However, being this bashful, I thought she needed a really pretty pink dress with lavender and yellow highlights.
Bashful Bettie as shy as can be wants to profess her love to her sweet heart. So, after I colored her up using my Crayola Colored Pencils, I framed her first with a pink sheet of card stock, then layered that over a yellow. both colors were intended to bring out the strips in the plaid card stock I used for the base. I complemented Bashful Bettie with a bright pink bow to match her dress, a little bit of ivy to highlight the green in the plaid and the leaves on her dress then used a stick pin to hold the "I Love You" sentiment. I topped the whole look off with three pink pearls in the bottom right hand corner.
What do you think? Isn't she just the cutest?
