June Bombshell Sketch Challenge

Hello! I wanted to play along with the Bombshell Stamps sketch challenge again. My friend and fellow Smeared and Smudged DT Member Kathi is the mind behind these great sketches every month. Take a peek at what she drew up this time around.

Bomb

Simple, yet cool, right? Here’s the card I made.

Bombshell-Sketch-June-1

For some reason the picture looks a little too green… I am having a hard time taking pics with my Ott Light lately. Any suggestions??? Anyway, I colored this fab Bombshell in with a little bit of Twinkle H20’s and some colored pencils. Here’s a close up.

Bombshell-Sketch-June-2

I didn’t like all of the negative space, so I filled it in with my swirly stencils from The Crafter’s Workshop, which I have been using quite a bit lately.

Bombshell-Sketch-June-3

My sentiment is from Smeared Ink. But it’s only a partial sentiment. I left off the “Punk?”. I thought that the first part was perfect for this card.

We are getting closer to July! Which means it’s almost time for me to be Ms. Bombshell!!! Woo Hoo! But don’t wait until next month to play along with all of the fabulous Bombshell Stamps challenges. Start now! They have some super fab ones, as you can see! 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!
