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.:)
