It’s time for another very full post from yours truly! I hope you’re in a comfy chair! Today I have a motorcycle, a Christmas mouse, and a casket! Quite a motley crew! Let’s start with the motorcycle!
Kathi has once again come up with a fantastic sketch for us Bombshell Stamps fanatics. I liked it so much, in fact…that I had it done at the end of September!!! I was trying to stay ahead of the game. That all went down the drain real quick!
I just got the Harley Bikes set. It is fabulous! I kept my coloring super simple here, but I think the end result looks like it took me a while.
I stamped the bike on kraft paper (the color is off here) Then I simply took some white acrylic paint, and a liner brush, and painted where there should be highlights. Honestly, the stamp itself did most of the work!
I used some floral (yes- floral!) paper to add a funky pattern. Can’t tell it’s a floral though, can you? ;) Please be sure to visit the Bombshell Blog to see the original sketch, and what the other DT gals came up with. Then, be sure to play along! You could win some Bombshell stamps of your choice!
Now, I think I’ll move on to Halloween…this week on the Smudgy Antics Blog, the challenge is Blackbirds. Easy as…pie! Hardy har har! I decided to make a bookmark.
I have those wooden casket boxes from Michaels (I think most of the Wicked Bloggers have at least 1 of those!). So I used it as a stencil to make my bookmark. It’s the perfect size! I cut out 2 in kraft paper (hmmm…a theme perhaps?), and 1 in cardboard.
I stamped a fabulous wood grain (All Night Media) on the kraft paper. I had pre stamped and cut Mr. Poe and his raven on 2 shades of gray cardstock. Stuck ‘em on, added some fabulous fibers, and stamped “Quoth the Raven.” Obviously, the Poe stuff is all from Smeared Ink.
And now for some Christmas! I kid you not. Simply Betty Stamps is having another release! I know you are going to like this one! It’s great! There are 2 images being previewed today, but I am only bringing you one. I figured I had enough to share with you already today! :) Say hello to Lola and her little mouse friend.
No kraft paper here! Lots and lots of color though! I think this image is so sweet! And it doesn’t have to be used for just Christmas. It would be great for birthdays, or for thank you cards.
Look at that sweet mouse! I used my watercolor markers for this image. I love pink and teal together. It’s such a cheery combination. Especially with the bits of yellow.
Tomorrow I will have 2 more images to share from this new Simply Betty Stamps release. They will be available for purchase starting on Friday. Until then, go on over to the SBS Blog to see what the rest of the DT created. PLUS! Our VERY special GDT member is non other than my girl Kelli! We are SO happy to have you with us for this release!
Thank you so much for hanging around till the end! I really am so grateful for all of your thoughts and comments. Have a spook-tacular day!
