March Bombshell Hump Day Hop: Washi Away & WW: Flower Fairies

Hello! It's time for the March Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop! This month's theme is "Washi Away." Washi  tape is extremely popular with paper crafters right now, so I thought it would be fun to have a challenge where everyone uses it. Also, since it's Wednesday, I have the latest Wicked Wednesday challenge to share as well. That theme is Flower Fairies, and we are sponsored by A & T Digital Designs. Let's start with the hop.

Ahoy Sailor! That's the set I used to create my card. Obviously, the Bombshell and Lifesaver image are part of the set, but so is the teeny star you see in between them.

I colored the images with alcohol markers, and used an embossing folder for my background. Then there's the fab chevron print washi tape! Yum! Love that stuff! Now...my daughter wanted to get in on the act. She loves washi tape too. So she chose some Bombshells to play with too. Take a peek at her teeny creations!

She used the Bombshell Patterns. What bites is that somehow, the 3rd little square has disappeared! She made 3, and now Mommy could only find 2. :( And I looked all over. And I feel terrible. But look at what a great job she did! I am so proud of her. I love crafting with my kids.


I used Ally from A & T Digital Designs. What a sweet image! I was so excited to color it. I used pencils, markers, and watercolors for my image. And look! More washi tape!

I hope you can see the Stickles I used on her wings. I love sparkly wings, don't you? If I had wings, they would sparkle for sure! I also like the look of a light colored ink on top of darker cardstock. Usually works best with a chalk ink, though that's not what I did here. But I love the effect. Be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Wednesday gals, and all of our Bombshell hoppers! The full list is below. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
