Viva la Diva!

My submission for the Inspiration Avenue challenge this week - divas!!
Those eyebrows alone would be enough to qualify Bette as a diva, don't you think? 

She always reminds me of Sunday afternoons as a child, watching "Now Voyager" and "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane" with my mum!

I started with a pencil drawing I did ages ago, and adjusted it using Picnik to make her just a little more diva-esque! The original is below ...
You'll find all the submissions for this week's theme over at the Inspiration Avenue blog.
