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:

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

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

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
