I am so excited to be in my very first Bombshell Stamps Blog Hop! I am so lovin’ these stamps. They are a blast to color in, and some of you may already know, I have always loved pin-up art! So, let’s get right to it! Here was the challenge Kas gave us:
Pretty In Pink – use pink, pastel, or spring inspired projects.
Doesn’t sound like your “cup of tea” How about an 80’s inspired project…
A lot of different ways that this can be taken…it’s up to you to do your magic.
Need some more ideas? Check out some great quotes from the movie.
And here is the prize that’s up for grabs!
So I decided to go with an 80’s theme. I loved the 80’s! The big hair, the crazy makeup, the wacky clothes… ahh, memories!
I used the Bombshell Angel image for this card. I think she’s so cool. And I think she’s lookin’ like she’s straight outta 1987 don’tcha think??? Here’s a close up:
I used a lot of different markers from Sakura for this project. I drew on bright green fishnets (who wouldn’t want a pair of those???), gave her bustier a fab hot pink glow, drew on a smattering of bangles, some crazy necklaces and lots o’ blue eyeshadow! But let’s not forget her skirt! I used a piece of wired sheer ribbon (leftover from my wedding!). I scrunched one side of the ribbon and tightened up the wire, and left the other side as is. This created a fabulously full skirt! Doesn’t she look like she’s dancing? Hmmm…I think she may just be rockin’ out to Madonna! It’s too bad the sheerness doesn’t come out in the photo too well. It looks pretty cool to see her fishnets through the skirt!
Here’s a close up of what my girl is sayin’ (and yes, I still say “rad!” to this day!!!). I wanted you to see the multi colored embossing glitter I used. See the rainbow effect? Click on any of the pics to see them bigger.
I think this challenge was totally dope! Now if you’ll excuse me… I’m gonna go and listen to some New Kids on the Block! Enjoy the rest of the hop!!!
The 80s rocked and you captured the essence of the age so well in this piece. I love that the ribbon was from your wedding - it's touches like that that really make a card special.
