Greetings fellow Bombshell fanatics! It’s the last Wednesday of the month, so it’s time for another Hump Day Hop! The hop is combined with the ladies over at Gauche Alchemy, so you’re in for a real treat! For my card, I combined not only the Hop Challenge, but the sketch and GDT challenge as well! We got a 3-fer here! Gotta love multi-tasking! So here’s the breakdown…
1. The Hop: Some Like it Hot, Hot, Hot! Inspiration possibilities: the movie "Some like it Hot" and the song "Hot, Hot, Hot"
Flames on the Hot Rod stamps
…and of course Summer colors
2. The Sketch:
3. The Guest Bombshell Challenge: Courtesy BoHo Rose: Burlesque! Put simply, burlesque means "in an upside down style". Burlesque turns social norms head over heels.
Burlesque, performers often create elaborate sets with lush, colorful costumes, mood-appropriate music, and dramatic lighting, and may even include novelty acts, such as fire breathing or contortionists, to enhance the impact of their performance.
Now without any further adieu…
“Haute” ain’t she??? So, I took a play on words with the name Kas had given us for the hop, so I wrote “Haute Stuff” as my sentiment. Yeah. it’s placed in a different spot then where Kathi drew it…but I know she won’t mind! ;} As far as the Burlesque theme goes…well…do you see what she’s wearing? Wouldn’t Dita Von Tesse love this get up? It’s just missing feathers…For some ridiculous reason, I couldn’t find a single black freakin’ feather! Insanity! Especially given my love of boas…but that’s a whole ‘nuther sack of potatoes…
I visited the Crayola Factory with my family last week. A whole gaggle of us went…it was a blast! I finally found the “Multicultural” pencil set that I have been looking for. Don’t even say it…Crayola pencils are awesome! No, I’ll never give up my Spectracolors…but Crayolas are great. Anyway, I used only the Multicultural set for coloring in my Bombshell. I really wanted this set because of the fabulous browns in it, and I think the whole set worked out perfectly here! You’ll also notice that I gussied her up with some Black Diamond Stickles.
And check out the pattern on my white cardstock (Prism). It’s got a gorgeous sheen and an awesome swirl pattern to it. I thought it was perfect!
Thanks for stopping by! I’m the last stop on the hop so I hope you enjoyed it!!! But in case you’re missing anyone…here’s the entire list:
