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!

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
