Howl at the Moon: Bombshell Forum Relaunch Party

Did you miss me? It was weird to take a day off of blogging after posting for 31 Days straight. Truth be told, I should have had a post... There's not only a new Desert Island Crafters Challenge, but also a new Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls challenge. With the computer nonsense I've been dealing with, it's been tougher than I would have anticipated to get things done. When did I become so technically reliant???
But on to the good stuff. Bombshell Stamps is having a Forum Relaunch Party! It's been going on since Halloween. If you haven't been over there lately, please stop by. There are prizes up for grabs, lots of fun chatter happening, and heck...who wouldn't want to hang out with us Bombshells? ;) Mary G. came up with a great challenge that I just had to play along with. It's called Howl at the Moon, and you need to create a project with a moon in it. I broke out one of my newest Bombshell aquisitions, Homeward Bound, for this one.

I stamped the image with Frost White ink from Color Box. Then I went in with white acrylic paint to add the moon, more water, the border, and to transform the sun that's in the bottom right corner. 


This was a great challenge! And I liked making something with a complete lack of color that wasn't Halloween. I do hope you'll drop by the Bombshell Forum to see all the fun things that are going on. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
