November Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop

Hello! Welcome to the latest Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop! I kept it pretty simple this month with the theme, and issued a Color Challenge. I love doing these. Here’s the beautiful palette I chose from Design Seeds.

Autumn Breeze

I asked for everyone to use at least 3 of the colors shown above, trying to keep it as close to the original palette as possible.  Here’s what I created.

My blue is a bit off, but the rest of the colors are pretty close. I used the new Peek-A-Boo Geisha with the koi umbrella.  This is such a sexy image.

Here’s a close up of my coloring. I used my watercolor markers on everything but her skin. For that I used Copics. You'll note that I also broke out the Crafter’s Workshop stencil again, to add some oomph to my background. Are ya sick of seeing it yet? ;)

It’s really hard to see, but my sentiment (pre-printed) says “head over heels” which I thought was pretty darn perfect for this image.

I’d like to give an shout out to Sparkly Mary…it’s her Birthday today! Happy Birthday, Bombshell! Hope your day is amazing!

So since I’m only the 2nd person on the hop list, you still have a lot more to go! The full hop list is below. Tomorrow I’ll be back with another new image from Simply Betty Stamps and a new Desert Island Crafter’s Challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "

Dream Big: Imagine Collaboration with Joy Clair

Hello! The Artists in Residence for Imagine had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Joy Clair. They sent us some fabulous stamps, and I really love them. The stamps have such beautiful details, and there are many many options within each set. I chose to work with the Dream Big Clear Stamp Set. It features a big dream catcher with feathers and beads that you can place as you wish.  It's linework is so fine, that I knew that VersaFine ink would be the perfect ink for these stamps. But first, I chose to spritz some Fireworks! on to my watercolor paper. I focused on keeping the color up where I would place the dream catcher later. After the Fireworks! dried, I inked up the hoop of the dream catcher and stamped it out. Then I "built" the rest of the dream catcher using the beads and feathers that are also in the set. It was so much fun to create the rest of the piece. After I was happy with the beads and feathers, I drew a "string" with a PITT pen
