Bombshell Stamps Ms. November Challenge: “Waste Not!”

Hello! I have a new Bombshell Stamps card to share with you today. I was inspired (and excited!) by Ms. November’s (Celina)challenge, called “Waste Not!” Meaning, take your scraps and make a funky Bombshell project. Easy for me, as I usually only use scraps. I decided to work with the Homeward Bound set. I am SO happy I finally got it. I was so nervous about it at first. Didn’t think I could make anything half as cool as Kathi, Cheryl, and the other Bombshells…but I think I am doing of with it! There’s another card I did with this set  HERE. This is what I made for today.

Honestly, I’m surprised at how few scraps I needed for this card! I usually use at least 4…but here, only 2!

I colored the ship with my watercolor markers, except for the sails. For them I used my E40 (Brick White) Copic. I think it’s the perfect color for shading. And toning things down. Totally my favorite color of the 4 Copics I own! ;)

My sentiment is of course, from this set. I had this ribbon (skullies pre-printed on it) from Michaels, which I thought would be a great finishing touch along with that button. I thought this card would be great for a guy, and as luck would have it…my friend thought so too! She purchased it from me yesterday to give to a male relative for his birthday! That made me very happy.

There is a lot more to see over at the Bombshell Blog. So please be sure to stop by and give some love. The Simply Betty Stamps Zombie Teen Christmas preview is still going on, so be sure to check that out too. I have 2 rad posts lined up for tomorrow, so “I do” (hint, hint!) hope you’ll come back to visit me then. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

It's fabulous. I don't know why you were worried about using this set. It's so versatile and you used it fabulously.

I love the red sailboat and the sails and the sunset and the torn paper sea and the ribbon and even the button and run-on sentences!

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!
