April Bombshell Sketch Challenge

Greetings and salutations! Today I am sharing the latest Bombshell Stamps sketch with you. I had a bit of a tough time with the original sketch, so I changed it up a bit. Check it out…

untitled

And here’s my version, using 3 different Bombshell Stamps sets.

It’s not too different. The 5 boxes on the left just weren’t workin’ for me…I couldn’t get the look I wanted. I am pretty pleased with the end result.

I colored my images with my watercolor markers. The sets that I used are Mi Amor (focal image and banner), Man’s Ruin (skull), and Pin Stripes (duh).

My cardstock is from Prism and Prima. It’s tough to see, but on the orange, there is a lime green distressed grid…makes the little touches of green that I used really stand out. If you click on any of the pictures, you can see it bigger.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you create something with this fab sketch too! If you do, you can link yours up on on the Bombshell Blog on April 13th. Show us what you’ve got!!! Have an inspiring day!

Christmas Package

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team will be sharing projects that fit the theme, "Dear Santa, I've Been Good!" I used the sweet Christmas Package stencil (which frankly, can be used for plenty of other occasions too!), and a scrap I had leftover from the Chevron Stencil. Check out the full tutorial below.



Supplies:
Stampendous: 
DWLL466: Christmas Package
DWLX7026: Chevron Stencil
MGK01: Fall Micro Glitter Kit
MGK02: Christmas Micro Glitter Kit
DWDGP: Gold Embossing Paste
DWDGWP: Glossy White Embossing Paste
DWDPK: Palette Knife
FX71: Sticky Panels

Other: 
My Colors Cardstock: Dare Devil, Parrot
Molotow: 2mm Round Pen in Signal White
EK Success: Corner Rounder
Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry

Directions:
1. Tape Christmas Package stencil to Dare Devil cardstock. Tape off the bow so that you don't get paste on it. Paste the box with your Palette Knife and Glossy White Embossing Paste. Remove stencil to wash. While the paste is still wet, sprinkle Lime Micro Glitter from the Hal…

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
