I named myself The Crafting Professor, since I'm a crafter, and I'm a college professor. I went through many, many years of graduate school, and the best source of relaxation and stress relief was being in my craft room or going to a local crop. Back then, I never told anyone that I was a full-time graduate student. I was waiting for the day I would scrapbook my graduation page. Now, I run the ScrapbookerPhD challenge blog (http://scrapbookerphd.blogspot.com), and am bringing my passion for crafting and teaching together. But here, at The Crafting Professor, I'm just sharing my work with like-minded crafters from all over the world.

Rose Thorn Betty
For this project, I was inspired by the funky hair challenge at Simply Betty Stamps. I chose the gorgeous image Rose Thorn Betty. My inspiration for this project is very simple: she looks like me! I have blue extensions throughout my hair, and my husband sends me blue roses on special occasions. Why blue? Funny little story... I am a HUGE fan of the TV show Doctor Who. This color blue is an important color to the show. Yup, I'm that big of a fan!!
To color this Betty, I used my Copics:
Hair Brown:E23, E25, E29
Hair Blue (and Roses):B24, B28, B29
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, E04, R22
Dress: R81, R82, R83
I cut her out of a Spellbinders die cut and inked the edges in blue.
The sentiment stamp is from CardzTV, the Just Saying set.
