SCD? - It's Blinging Official!!

A big hello from me fellow SCD'ers!
Yes! Today I have good news.....ring those bells
....'cos I'm now officially on the DT for Something Completely Different :)
How scary! LOL.......What a thrill to be asked :))))
When I saw this months format was "Torso's" I nearly wondered if I had made the right decision ......HOL
....but seriously it is not as daunting as you might's basically a different shape to stamp those lovely rubbery images onto
.....yeh we can do that!
So this weeks theme chosen by fellow DT Ang (Ooh! Get me!!!) is "A Bit of Bling" and here is my movie star torso....can't get more blingy than the stars of the silver screen can you?

I lightly coloured the background with DI spun sugar and brushed corduroy and stamped the Paperartsy movie star lady in brushed corduroy also -- then masked her and stamped the T!m ticket stamp......masked that then stamped the little stars (my own) in DI aged mahogany.......masked them then stamped the hounds tooth (my own) over the rest of it using a second stamping in brushed corduroy again.
Added black star gems to the red stars and a combo of gems around the big star...mainly because I did not have enough of any one colour! LOL
The little crown is Ten Seconds Studio metal in hot pink diamond....stamped and moulded.
....The wording is Paperartsy and is really good for filling in with dimensional Adirondack acrylics.

And that's not all folks!!!........I've also been creating digitally and have made a button for all you devotees of SCD to link to on your side bar
......I hope you like it :) please grab the image and save to your computer
......then add the SCD url as a link when you upload the picture to your sidebar.
Thanks for looking and happy stamping!
Go on.......give a Torso a try....I'm glad I did :)
xoxo Sioux

P.S. Don't forget that the torso's should be ATC size as we are going to be swapping at the end of the month.....if you like the rather rounded figure I've used you can download
