August Bombshell Sketch Challenge

It’s that time again! Time for another one of Kathi’s fabulous and inspiring sketches for Bombshell Stamps! Here’s a look see at it.

August 11

There are so many things you can do with this sketch…I may need to use it again because of all of the ideas I have! But for now, here’s what I made for today.

I used a wacky combination of papers, that I think look pretty funky together when used with this sketch. For my Bombshell images, I used Butterfly Queen and Man’s Ruin (for the sentiment).

I colored my Queen with my colored pencils. Actually, I only used pencils from my beloved Multicultural set from Crayola. Yes. Crayola! Their pencils rock. And so does this set. Anyway, I must say, I love the way her stockings came out. They really look fibrous to me, and sheer. I think she’s h-o-t!

I had some clear cabochons that I tinted with Pitch Black Alcohol Ink from Ranger, and I adhered them using Platinum Liquid Pearls.

I hope you will play along with this sketch challenge! Just post your creation on your blog and add it to the Inlinkz on the Bombshell Blog. You have the chance to win some rad Bombshell Stamps! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

This is so awesome! I love it.:) I'm already trying to think ahead to what I'm going to do for the hop at the end of the month. I've got some new Bombshells and I'm itching to use them. Maybe I'll try to play along with the sketch so I can break some out before then.:)

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

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
