Ring in the New: Bombshell Stamps January Hump Day Hop!

Happy Hump Day! The last Wednesday of the month is one of my favorite days of every month. Why? Because that means it’s time for the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop! This month I challenged the players to “Ring in the New!” Meaning, they had to have or do something new with their project. A new technique, use a new image, try a new product. It left things very open and I think, very exciting!

I was super inspirited by Bombshell Alaine’s latest tutorial. Check it out in all of it’s awesomeness HERE. As soon as I saw it, I knew that was what I was going to do for my project. So I Pinned it so that I could easily go back to it later. I also used this month’s sketch challenge which you can see HERE. So without any further adieu, here’s what I came up with.

I loved this technique! I used images from Speed Shop, and I think they are such a great choice for doing this type of coloring. I actually have the other car in this set colored up already too! I will reveal it at a later date. ;)

In comparing mine to Alaine’s, I probably should have let more of the black show through. But I still like it. It’s hard to tell, but the chrome was colored with a metallic pencil, so it’s uber shiny.

I changes Kathi’s sketch around just a wee bit….but I know she won’t mind! I was so stoked to realize that I had cardstock from DCWV that perfectly matched my car! I couldn’t believe it! I always color first, then match paper later.

So now I send you off. Off to my dear friend Laura’s blog, where you are sure to see something fabulous. I hope that, if you didn’t get to hop with us this month, you will next month! We would love to have you. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I think the coloring looks excellent. I'm sure the color is different than if you'd colored on white paper. That car really pops on the black background too.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
