May Bombshell Blog Hop!

I’m participating in my second Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop! This month, the challenge is called, “Look Ma, I did it!” Kas says:

Call it a Mother's Day theme....or Just fun.
This month, we want to see what you are made of....and what you can make.
You can make any sort of project, a card, a layout, an altered just need to make a handmade embellishment. It can be a flower, button, etc... You just have to make it.
Pair it with a great Bombshell stamp and get ready for the bloghop.

Here’s my creation:


Yee Haw! This Bombshell is ready to wrestle up a bull, ain’t she??? So what did I “create?” I made my background using a stencil and chalk, plus Distress Inks. And, I made my little embellishment using a Nestabilities and one of the sentis from the Lil’ Grumpies set (obsessed? Hell yeah!). Here’s a close up of this purdy little wrangler:


Please click on any of the photos for a close up.She’s colored in with my Spectracolor colored pencils. And then to dull down the colors I rubbed a whole lotta Antique Linen Distress Ink on top, plus a touch of Walnut Stain.


Here’s a close up of my handmade embelli and background. And I also used the May sketch for my card! I almost forgot to mention that! Here’s the sketch:

So I flipped it on it’s side and changed it just a wee bit, but I think you can still totally “get “ the sketch here, right?

And there you have it! I am one month closer to enjoying my Bombshell Month of July!!! Now it’s time for you to continue the hop! Here’s the full hop list:

Alison (that’s me!)

Enjoy! Have an inspiring day!!!

Love you coloring work! Sentiment embellishments are so versatile, great idea!
First off I have always loved the Bombshell stamps. I had no clue that you were part of their dt until yesterday. I guess I am too busy reading what you post to look at the sides--lol

i really like how you colored the pinup cowgirl and used the inks to make it look vintage.

Have you done the newest Pink Ninjas challenge --random? I am having problems thinking of something to scrap for it. I posted new layouts using their kits on their gallery page though.
