Hump Day Hop with Bombshell and Wicked Wednesday

Hello and welcome to the June 2014 Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop. I also have a new ATC  for Wicked Wednesday. This month, the hop theme was "Red Carpet Ready," and I wanted everyone to glam up their Bombshells as if they were going to walk the red carpet. Here's what I made.

I used Bombshell Angel along with the Evening Bombshell digis for her outfit. I colored her with a combination of watercolor markers and alcohol markers.

I love this dress, and I want it for myself. I was inspired by the dress that Angelina Jolie wore a couple of years ago that was emerald green. It popped so beautifully against the red carpet.


My background was done with my Houndstooth stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils. I applied Copper Embossing Paste to the stencil and then sprinkled some pretty iridescent glitter on to the wet paste. For the sentiment, I applied the paste with a palette knife, and then the glitter again. Below is the full hop list.

For Wicked Wednesday, the theme is Teddy Bears, and we are sponsored by Crafty Sentiments Designs. 

Loved this little digi. But I have to be honest...I was (and still am) kinda unsure as to whether or not I like my background with the digi. My WW gals all said that they liked the combo....but I think the styles kinda clash. 

The drips and sprays were doe with iRESISTables from Imagine Crafts. It's textured...so it dries glossy and raised. Super cool. The image was colored with alcohol markers. Unfortunately, you don't see some of my subtle shading. My sentiment is from a Care Bears stamp set. :)  I hope you've enjoyed y projects! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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!
