Bombshell February Hump Day Hop! Leap into Action!

Greetings on this very rare 29th of February! Do you know anyone that has a birthday today? I knew a guy back from elementary school who does. I wonder if he’s having a big celebration. But I digress. As you probably know, the last day of every month is the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop. And I am the lucky one that gets to pick the theme each month.
This month, since it’s a leap year, and since the hop is actually on the 29th, I decided to go with “Leap into Action!” That means that I wanted the participants to make their Bombshells into heros. There are many types of heroes. Firemen, policemen, nurses, super heroes, and advocates, just to name a few. I decided to go the super hero route with mine.

How cool super rad does my Pirate’s Life Bombshell look? Don’tcha just love her Bat Girl costume? You can snag it for yourself! My friend Anita, and fellow Bombshell fan, drew this little number up and shared it on the Bombshell forum. HERE is the link. Be sure to thank Anita for it if you download this awesome costume!

I’ve had the costume for quite a while. I was waiting for the right opportunity to use it, and by golly, this was it! I went with the classic bat girl colors, though sometimes the images I found looked more purple than blue… I used a mix of watercolor markers and Copics for her.

I had fun making the background. Cutting all of those little strips isn’t as bad as you may think. But I wanted a real dynamic quality to the card, and I think those stripes gave it just that. My “super rad” is from Bam Pop!, I just had to use it here. A few rhinestones, some “explosions,” a little bit of sparkly ink. Voila! Finished!
Now it’s time for you to leap on over to Awesome Alex’s blog. The entire hop list is below. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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!
