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!
