SBS Hop! Featuring Big Love Gun Lola

It’s finally release day! I am sure that many of you have been counting down to today so that you can snag the new Simply B Stamps Teen Scene Steampunk Valentine collection. I am really excited about today, because not only are we doing a blog hop, but it’s featuring my favorite image from this new collection! I’d like to introduce you to Big Love Gun Lola.

She is just too damn cool, if you ask me! I’ve had her colored up for so long, I have been itching to share her with you. Lola is ready to defend her love for you. That’s why I used the words “huggable heroine” for my sentiment.
I colored her in using a mix of watercolor markers and Copics. I just love doing Lola’s hair. Especially this time around. Please click on any of my pictures to see them bigger.

I used some more of the gears from the wonderful stash my Dad gave me so very long ago (I first mentioned this wonderful mix of goodies during the latest Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop. I attached them using Glossy Accents. They are just the little touches that this card needed to finish it off.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s offering from me. And I hope you have fallen in love with this new Valentine collection! Below is the complete hop list. Please be sure to leave everyone some love. Thank you for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!!!
