July Bombshell Hump Day Hop!

It’s the last Wednesday in July (how the hell did that happen?!), which means it’s time for Bombshell Stamps’ Hump Day Hop! I changed things up a bit this month and gave us a Color Challenge. I love color challenges, and I thought this would allow us to be totally free in what images we use, and the theme. Here’s the inspiration pic I provided:

Color July

I got this lovely image from Design Seeds. They have the most beautiful color palettes. I challenged the Bombshell fans to use at least 3 colors from above. I managed to use all 5! Here’s my creation.

I used 2 images from the Hula Girl set. Aren’t they pretty? I colored them with my watercolor markers. I also used a bunch of different patterned papers. As well as this month’s Bombshell sketch. Here’s the sketch itself.

And here is a close up of the central image, which I adore.

It’s just so pretty! I love the swallow. And I love the combination of flowers. 

I stayed away from embellishments, because I didn’t want it to get too overwhelming. I think all of the various patterns was enough.

Now it’s time for you to get hopping! We have some fresh meat joining us this month, as well as some of our tried and true participants. Thanks to all of you who are playing, and commenting! These hops are so much fun, and you all rawk for participating!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
