Hauntingly fun Bombshell Stamps Hop!

Who’s ready for a spooktacular  hop with some of the Bombshell gals? I know I am! There is a fabulous new set of digis clothes that is to be paired with Bombshell Angel. The set includes 3 fa-boo-lous costumes, a scroll, and some wicked good sayings.


I chose to work with the steampunk/vampy outfit (thought I colored all 3 images immediately, since they’re all so cool!). I kept my card kind of simple…but it’s still cool.

How great is that outfit? Makes me wanna break out my own top hat (yes, I do own one). I stuck to one of my favorite color combos…red, black, and white (at Gene’s suggestion).

I highlighted the white in her outfit with a pale blue. I didn’t want to use grey, because I didn’t want the white to appear dingy.

I’ve been a wee bit obsessed with using my masks lately (you’ll see a lot more of them this week!)…and she just seemed like she needed to have a steampunk edge to her (that’s probably influenced by the AMAZING collection that Simply Betty Stamps is coming out with this week!). So, I broke out my Tim Holtz masks and used that awesome, large clock. I placed it, inked over it with Frost White (Color Box), and then embossed it with Judikins’ Amazing Glaze. Then I added some X-Mas Red Stickles to accent it a bit more. See the texture from the Amazing Glaze?

Please be sure to check out what the other Bombshell gals have created for today’s hop. I am sure you will love everything you see. And, if you have Bombshell Angel, be sure to snag up this awesome new digi set! If you don’t have ANgel yet, what are you waiting for? She is one of the most versatile sets in the entire Bombshell Stamps collection. :) Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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!
