February Hump Day Hop: Some Like it HOT!

Greetings! It's the last Wednesday of the month, so it's time for the Bombshell Stamp Hump Day Hop! This month, I decided that the theme would be "Some Like it HOT!" I cannot wait to see how the other participants interpreted this theme. I chose to make an art journal page.

I started off with my Pirate's Life Bombshell, and I added a few of the images from the Holiday Accessory set. I thought that my cauldron needed some smoke, so I used the flame from the Hula Girl set.

I colored my images with my Spectrum Noirs and Copics. I cut everything out, and then started to play with my background. I used a combination of inks, paints, and stencils.  I also decided to add "Drink Up" from the Man's Ruin set.

I loved doing the background. Though I do think it may need a few more layers....I need to work on that a bit. Pushing those layers further. But, I still think my Bombshell is hot! And, who doesn't enjoy a hot beverage?
And now, it's time to send you off! Please be sure to visit all of the stops along the hop, and leave everyone some love. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Good job. I'm interested to see the rest of your art journal! I thought about using her for this project too.

Alison, I love the journal page. And turning the pirate into a witch is brilliant! I keep saying I want to do an art journal but.... LOL

Your journal page is fabulous. I love the scene you put together and how you colored it.

I also love the background you created for her.

I told you that the "Holiday Accessory" set was incredibly useful!!!

By the way, I wouldn't drink anything from a cauldron, unless someone used it to mix margaritas!

Great use of the pirate image for the witch! And I like the flames for the smoke/steam from the cauldron.

Nice page. I miss entering challenges. I'm starting to get back into stalking around the blogs and have seen some good stuff that have gotten my crafty mind going again.

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!
