Bombshell Stamps Ms. November Challenge: “Waste Not!”

Hello! I have a new Bombshell Stamps card to share with you today. I was inspired (and excited!) by Ms. November’s (Celina)challenge, called “Waste Not!” Meaning, take your scraps and make a funky Bombshell project. Easy for me, as I usually only use scraps. I decided to work with the Homeward Bound set. I am SO happy I finally got it. I was so nervous about it at first. Didn’t think I could make anything half as cool as Kathi, Cheryl, and the other Bombshells…but I think I am doing of with it! There’s another card I did with this set  HERE. This is what I made for today.

Honestly, I’m surprised at how few scraps I needed for this card! I usually use at least 4…but here, only 2!

I colored the ship with my watercolor markers, except for the sails. For them I used my E40 (Brick White) Copic. I think it’s the perfect color for shading. And toning things down. Totally my favorite color of the 4 Copics I own! ;)

My sentiment is of course, from this set. I had this ribbon (skullies pre-printed on it) from Michaels, which I thought would be a great finishing touch along with that button. I thought this card would be great for a guy, and as luck would have it…my friend thought so too! She purchased it from me yesterday to give to a male relative for his birthday! That made me very happy.

There is a lot more to see over at the Bombshell Blog. So please be sure to stop by and give some love. The Simply Betty Stamps Zombie Teen Christmas preview is still going on, so be sure to check that out too. I have 2 rad posts lined up for tomorrow, so “I do” (hint, hint!) hope you’ll come back to visit me then. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

It's fabulous. I don't know why you were worried about using this set. It's so versatile and you used it fabulously.

I love the red sailboat and the sails and the sunset and the torn paper sea and the ribbon and even the button and run-on sentences!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
