Bombshell February pin-Up Challenge: Red and Gold

Greetings Bombshell Fans! Today I am bringing you a project that I made to coincide with the February Pin Up, Christine Hill Garner. Her challenge was to create a project using Red & Gold. Here's what I made.

I used a lot of stamp sets for this clean and simple card, believe it or not. I started of course, with Bombshell Angel. But I wanted to change her outfit, so I printed out a couple of outfits from the Fun 'N Flirty Bombshell  set. I decided I wanted to glitter up the skirt, and add a pattern to her shirt, so I used the zebra print from the Bombshell Patterns set. Last, but certainly not least, I used a sentiment from the Mermaid Treasure set.

With 20/20 hindsight, I should have given her skirt a base color. I of course thought of this after I squished all of that yummy glitter on. Oh well. Next time. As a side note, my kids loved watching my put her clothes together, especially when I showed them how I was putting the pattern on the shirt. I love that my kids enjoy art as much as they do.

I had some scraps from a gold doilie that I used, and that was it. I think her outfit is funky enough without a lot of other papers and such. Please be sure to check out the Bombshell Blog to see all of the other rad Red & Gold creations. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

She's fabulous. Great job paper piecing her.

I love the way you used the doily. It looks very Steampunk.

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!
