My first Bombshell

My gorgeous new Bomshell stamps arrived couple days ago and how chuffed was i?
These stamps are just so gorgeous! I think this might have to be my fav ~ but then its so hard to choose as they are all really gorgeous.
I had this book~designed the paper for the front and covered it, stamped it (missed few bits! so had to improvise with gems and the roses!) The main image i crackled and stamped over, then coloured it and glazed, added some flowers to her shawl and that's about it. Was pretty pleased how it came out tho!
 Closer shot of the image...
Hope to see you again soon
