May Bombshell Hump Day Hop! Goth up Your Bombshells!

Hello Everyone! It is with great pleasure that I bring you my very first Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Blog Hop Challenge! I thought that I would kick things off in a way that was So for those of you that know me, this particular challenge won't be much of a surprise. It's time to...
Goth up your Bombshells!!!
Yup! Let's break out the heavy eyeliner, dark, edgy clothes and let's turn those beautiful pinups into creatures of the night! Don't forget to draw some tats and chokers on to your girls too! We're going to dress 'em up Alison style!

Here’s my creation using Pirate’s Life:

Doesn’t she look cool? I am so diggin’ her threads…and wish I had ‘em! She is colored in with colored pencils except for her fishnets and tats of course! Here’s a closer look.

You can click on any of my pictures to see them bigger. Don’tcha think she looks great with purple hair? Hmmm…it’s been a while since my hair was that color. ;) Her skull tat is also from the Pirate’s Life set.

The spider web punch is from Martha Stewart , and I embossed it just a bit with silver powder. You’ll also notice that the stars are reflective. I love this paper (DCWV)! The “Wicked” is from Smeared Ink’s Teen Style Sayings set.

The tombstones are also Martha Stewart and I embossed them in clear…but kept it textured.

So? Is she goth??? I had the best time with this challenge, and I am thrilled that we have so many participants playing along with us. Please be sure to hop through all the blogs (list is below), and if you like what you see…join us next month! I will have June’s Hump Day Hop challenge posted in the forum on June 1st.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have an inspiring day!!!
