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.

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!!!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
