Ms. January's Bombshell Challenge & Wicked Wednesday: Friendship

Hello out there in Bloggy Land! I have 2 projects to share with you today. The first is for Ms.January's Bombshell Stamps Pinup Challenge. Ms. January's challenge is "Puttin' on the Ritz." I used a set that I just added to my collection...Lucky Bride.

So, I vamped her up a bit. A ritzy vamp, if you will. Tough to see the glitter in this pic, but you'll see it......

Sorry for the harsh lighting on this one. I had a lot of fun coloring her. The highlights on the dress were my favorite parts to color.

Behold! The glittery goodness! Tiara Stickles to be exact.

Fun challenge, right? Now....on to the next fun challenge...this week's Wicked Wednesday theme is "Friendship." And, we are sponsored by Crafty Sentiments.

Well, that sure is different from the first project, huh? That's me...multifaceted. ;) I think this is a sweet and adorable image. She kinda reminds me of Strawberry Shortcake.... which is why I colored her the way I did.

One of my favorite things about creating a piece is when, after coloring, finding the papers to match. I usually get pretty lucky and find just what I need. I think the patterned paper I used on this ATC was just right for the coloring of this image.
I hope you will visit (and perhaps even play along!) with the Bombshell girls as well as the Wicked Wednesday girls. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Two great projects Alison...I am loving the work you do for Bombshell stamps. Great coloring for both projects! I used to color and then match but became frustrated too many times. Now I choose paper and then color (when I remember, that is)...
