Bombshell Stamps’ Pinup Challenge: Shabby Chic

Hello! It’s time for me to share my latest Bombshell Stamps project with you. This month’s Pinup is the amazingly talented Milo. I highly recommend you visit her blog. She and her wife she (shares the blog with Milo) are such incredible artists. This month, she challenged us to make Shabby Chic cards. Using mostly white, pearls and lace. This was a bit of a challenge for me, as you all probably know how much I enjoy using color. But I broke out my Retro Cowgirl stamp set and went to town. Here’s what I came up with.

It’s much simpler than what Milo would make…but as I said, using all white is a bit of a struggle for me. And, I don’t really have a lot of white “stuff.” Though I did enjoy the challenge! I may need to try my hand at this one again! :)

I used a little light blue and 2 shades of grey to add some dimension to my Bombshell’s white ensemble. I also used the “sight” image from Smeared Ink’s Chick Dig Guns set. I added some sparkle to it with a glitter pen from Sakura.

I chalked my doily with blue, and added a boat load of  pearls using Platinum Liquid Pearls by Ranger. The gun and Bang! are also from the Retro Cowgirl set.

Wanna play along with this great challenge? You can! Just add your Bombshell Shabby Chic creation to the Bombshell Blog. You have the chance to win stamps from Bombshell! And remember, next Wednesday is the next Bombshell Hump Day Hop. Have you signed up yet? Do it in THIS thread by Monday to hop along with  us. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I'll admit I've held back from this challenge because I wasn't sure what I could do with almost all white, but you've done a gorgeous job! Looks great.:)
