Bombshell Stamps February Sketch

I have a new Bombshell Stamps card to share with you today. And I have to be honest…I wasn’t sure if I would ever get it done. Yeah, I know…it’s only February 7th…but I was privy to the sketch for quite a while now (one of the many perks to being on the Design Team!), and I just couldn’t do it. This had to be the hardest sketch challenge for me. Ever. Not really sure why…And, I had to change it up a bit since it just wasn’t working! Hope you like it…

I really like the colors and the way I colored everything. It’s just the layout that has me thinking it’s a bit wonky… Let me show you the original sketch:

untitled

My sizes are off a wee bit with my circles…and I changed the lines in the background. Not too much of an alteration…but it was what I needed to get it done.

 

I colored my Bombshell (Man’s Ruin) with my watercolor markers. The skull on the glass is done in pencil.

These images are from various other Bombshell sets. The skull (colored pencil), is from Man’s ruin…it has a rose in it’s mouth, which I removed. The center image is from Bombshell Angel (watercolor markers) and the rose is from Mi Amor (watercolor markers again).

Kathi, you sure did challenge me this time around! But, I am happy with the end result. I hope you play along with the Bombshell girls too! I’d love to see your version of this sketch. Have an inspiring day!

WOW... For someone who was intimidated by the sketch you did awesome. I love the colors in this and the sheer liquid in the glass. :-)

Alison, this is crazy cool! The images are perfect, the coloring is fab, and the palette brings it all together! Love the images at the bottom. They sort of remind me of lotteria cards, which is awesome! Love it ;D Hugz, Cheryl
