So since I am in 2 hops, I made 2 projects! Both featuring Bombshell Stamps though. They have some fab-u-licious skulls!!! The first project is a card featuring the Sugar Skulls set.
I used the largest stamp in this set, and with Phoenix's direction, I colored it in with lots of bright, cheery colors.
The sentiment is also from the Sugar Skulls set. I tried to keep it very un-goth. No black (except for the outline). All happy colors.
For my next project, I went with a pendant. Now admittedly, this didn't turn out quite as good as I would have hoped. I clear embossed my images (from the Man's Ruin and Homeward Bound sets), and then colored the pendant, which is made of wood, with Distress Inks.
I topped the whole pendant off with Glossy Accents. From this view it looks fine, but when the light hits it a certain way, the images seem to disappear, and it's just a blur of color. I think next time, I won't emboss with clear. I'll use an actual color.
I still like it though. I'll wear it. Perhaps do up the other side differently. I am certainly inspired to experiment more. This was a lot of fun to make, I just wish the end result was a wee bit better. So there are my two projects! I hope you liked them. I always enjoy working with skulls. As I really do appreciate mine. ;)
Now, are you ready for this? It's a super huge hop! Get ready for Smeared & Smudged hop list!
