August Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop: Put Me in the Movies

It’s the last Wednesday of the month (I wanna know who stole my Summer!), so that means it’s time for Bombshell Stamps’ Hump Day Hop! We have 13 fabulous ladies joining in this month. I am really looking forward to seeing what everyone has created.

Here’s the theme I came up with for this month. "Put Me in the Movies." Take a movie, and/or movie poster, and use it to inspire your Bombshell Stamps project! Any of your stamp sets will work. And, you can make anything you want.

One of my latest Bombshell sets is Retro Cowgirl. And I haven’t gotten to use it nearly as much as I’d have like to yet, so I knew I wanted to go with a Western flick. Now, I don’t watch Westerns, but of course I know some of the titles. And while looking at the Retro Cowgirls, I thought of “Annie Get Your Gun.” Purrrfect! So I searched for the right movie poster, hoping I could find something I could work with.

 

This poster was exactly what I wanted! Here’s what I came up with.

How great is this Bombshell??? I found the movie’s title and poster just by doing a quick Google search. I printed out the title that I liked (love that font!) and cut it out. Then I started to work on my Bombshell.

I colored her using my markers, in colors that were close to the poster I chose. I cut out the target with my Coluzzle. I have a fabulous wood grain stamp that I inked with Versa Mark, and then I chalked over the image from brown to blue, to again, mimic the poster. I hope you can see the wood grain. You can click on any of my pictures to see them bigger.

Since my cowgirl isn’t holding her guns up, and let’s face it…I couldn’t really do this poster without any guns, I added the guns that are also in the Retro Cowgirl set. And that was that. What do you think???

Here is the complete list of hoppers. Be sure to leave us all some love! We really enjoy the feedback!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
