July Bombshell Hump Day Hop!

Greetings! It’s time for another Bombshell Stamps hop, which sadly means that I am coming to the end of my month-long term as a Guest Designer. It makes me sad… But have no fear! I will of course continue to play along with the other challenges, and I’ll have some of my own ideas too! ;}

You should be coming from my lovely friend, Meredith’s blog.

This is what Kas challenged us to do this time around:

She's a Firecracker Alright!
I would love to see something along the lines of:
1) Red - White - Blue
2) Firecrackers (Bombshells)
3) Military
4) or sparkling like a firework!

Here is my lil project for today:

Please pardon the awful photos…I just ran out of time! I will try to take some prettier ones! You can click on any of them to see them bigger.

See the sheen on my stripey paper? It’s got a beautiful luster to it. Kind of golden. It’s from Reminisce, and I knew it was perfect for this challenge!

You can see it a little better here. I also used some gold doilies that I scored from my mom’s house (don’t worry! I asked first!). Originally I was going to draw some fireworks in using gold Stickles, but then I remembered I had the doilies, and I knew that would be even better! It has the look of fireworks, but done just a bit differently!

And of course I used my awesome Pirate’s Life stamp set! I gave my girl a little tat on her arm…to cover up an oops! I had colored in the white highlights of her hair using a red watercolor marker (lemme also mention that I embossed my images), and the marker doesn’t dry on the embossed parts. Well, I accidentally ran my finger over her hair before I cleaned it up with a paper towel! She had a red splotch! So, I inked her up! Good save, right?The fibers I used are a midnight blue with clear tinsel. Again, I am sorry for the crummy pictures!

Now it’s time to hop over to my awesome friend Danielle’s blog! But below you will find the whole list, in case you missed anyone!

Quick side note Number 1: I would like to give a HUGE “thank you!” to Shannon and the rest of the Bombshell girls! I have had a fantastic time this month, and I look forward to playing with you super talented ladies some more! This is SO not the end of me!!!

Quick side note Number 2: My fellow S&S DT member, Lady Brayton, created this amazingly fantastic card, using little old ME as the inspiration! She saw a bombshell-esque poster, and made her own version to look like yours truly! Please click HERE to see the whole story, and show her some well-deserved love! You are my sinister sister, LB!!!

Enjoy the rest of the hop! Have an inspiring day!!!

Another awesome card! I love how you used the gold doilies. At first they look like gears to me.
I love how you used your mistake to make it even better. I would have thrown it away and tried again.
Thanks for always sharing your awesome ideas.
