November Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop

Hello! Welcome to the latest Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop! I kept it pretty simple this month with the theme, and issued a Color Challenge. I love doing these. Here’s the beautiful palette I chose from Design Seeds.

Autumn Breeze

I asked for everyone to use at least 3 of the colors shown above, trying to keep it as close to the original palette as possible.  Here’s what I created.

My blue is a bit off, but the rest of the colors are pretty close. I used the new Peek-A-Boo Geisha with the koi umbrella.  This is such a sexy image.

Here’s a close up of my coloring. I used my watercolor markers on everything but her skin. For that I used Copics. You'll note that I also broke out the Crafter’s Workshop stencil again, to add some oomph to my background. Are ya sick of seeing it yet? ;)

It’s really hard to see, but my sentiment (pre-printed) says “head over heels” which I thought was pretty darn perfect for this image.

I’d like to give an shout out to Sparkly Mary…it’s her Birthday today! Happy Birthday, Bombshell! Hope your day is amazing!

So since I’m only the 2nd person on the hop list, you still have a lot more to go! The full hop list is below. Tomorrow I’ll be back with another new image from Simply Betty Stamps and a new Desert Island Crafter’s Challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I really love how you have the swirls on the side and the tear at the bottom that kind of mimics the swirls.

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!
