Bombshell DT ATC Hop

Hello! Today I bring you my very first ATC! The Design Team over at Bombshell Stamps decided to do a hop amongst ourselves showing off the ATC’s we made about ourselves! You should be coming from my friend Kathi’s blog. Here’s how the whole thing got started by Steph (Pink Star):

“Each participant will pick the Bombshell that is 'them' - your idea of you, bss style. you will create an ATC with that, and add in your current (or past, if you wish) DT title. {example: Bombshell March - Aug 2010... or something to that effect) I know every one of us at least has an inner bombshell, even if we don't show it in our every day life - like me - but let's show that side some love!”

Pretty cool right? So now that we all have our fantastic ATC’s from our co-DT members, we wanted to hop! So that everyone could see the fabulousness! Here’s mine…but again, I remind you, this is my very first ATC… I had no idea I should have written the info on the back of the card! Ah well...mine's unique! ;} And she looks like me! My Bombshell is totally sporting my funky colored hair!

I used my fave colors, purple and teal to create my little ATC. And of course, I needed to add some sparkle and some stars, ‘cause I put stars on everything! Even my signature!

Ms.-July-ATC-5

Here’s a closer shot of how I colored her…uh…myself! ;} I used various markers…mostly my watercolor markers though. I even gave her some purple makeup!

Ms.-July-ATC-4

Here you can see that I added some Glimmer Mist (2 colors) to my punched out stars. If you click on the photo, you can see it a little better.

Ms.-July-ATC-2

And here they all are! It took me quite a while, but it was fun! And I must say, SO worth it because when I received that little parcel in the mail I jumped for joy and gasped in amazement! I am SO thrilled to be on a team with such amazing designers! The talent is incredible! Please make sure you go through the whole hop because you don’t want to miss a thing!!!

Ms.-July-ATC-3

So hop along to Erika’s blog now! Get ready to be wowed! Enjoy the hop! I hope we have inspired you!!!

She's so fab, Alison! Love the hair and I picked up on it right away ;D Also, your name and term added to the stars is a genius touch! This is only my second ATC swap and I managed to put my info on the back, but didn't realize that most folks number them. Oh well...LOL! We're getting there ;D

I so love that you colored her hair to match your own. Too cool.

I love the coloring and all the little details.

BTW, this was my first ATC swap too. I lost count of my cards and ended up with two #16/16.

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
