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!!!
