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!
