Howl at the Moon: Bombshell Forum Relaunch Party

Did you miss me? It was weird to take a day off of blogging after posting for 31 Days straight. Truth be told, I should have had a post... There's not only a new Desert Island Crafters Challenge, but also a new Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls challenge. With the computer nonsense I've been dealing with, it's been tougher than I would have anticipated to get things done. When did I become so technically reliant???
But on to the good stuff. Bombshell Stamps is having a Forum Relaunch Party! It's been going on since Halloween. If you haven't been over there lately, please stop by. There are prizes up for grabs, lots of fun chatter happening, and heck...who wouldn't want to hang out with us Bombshells? ;) Mary G. came up with a great challenge that I just had to play along with. It's called Howl at the Moon, and you need to create a project with a moon in it. I broke out one of my newest Bombshell aquisitions, Homeward Bound, for this one.

I stamped the image with Frost White ink from Color Box. Then I went in with white acrylic paint to add the moon, more water, the border, and to transform the sun that's in the bottom right corner. 


This was a great challenge! And I liked making something with a complete lack of color that wasn't Halloween. I do hope you'll drop by the Bombshell Forum to see all the fun things that are going on. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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
