November Bombshell Sketch

Hello out there in Bloggyland! I have the latest Bombshell Sketch Challenge to share with you today. Here’s what Kathi created for us this month.

11-11

I turned my sketch 90 degrees, because I really wanted to work with one of the motorcycles from the Harley Bikes collection again. I used the same coloring technique for the bike as I did last month, but the rest of the card is done totally differently. Think…Nicole Maki. :)

I got these crazy awesome stencils by the Crafter’s Workshop at a stamp show the other day, and I am already head over heels for them. I have several from this company already, but this new one is called Mini Punchinella. That totally screamed to me!

I stamped the motorcycle on Kraft cardstock, and painted highlights with acrylic. The stenciled parts were all colored with Distress Inks.

This was a lot of fun to make. I loved having the bike without color, but putting almost an explosion of color all around it. There is a lot more inspiration for this sketch over on the Bombshell Blog. Please go and visit! And, it would be great if you made something for this sketch too! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Oh my goodness! I love it!

I think the stenciling is a gorgeous setting for that image and you really made it shine.

Thanks so much for the shout-out. I've been very under the weather since the weekend and have missed practically everything online.

P.S. Love your sugar skull make-up. You're the coolest!

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
