Hello! It’s been a very busy week here at my Pillow Book, and it will continue to be so throughout the week. Right now, I am sharing with you my latest Bombshell Stamps card, that I made for March’s Pin-Up challenge. This month, the lucky lady is my dear friend Alex. And she came up with a great challenge for us.
“I want you to add texture to your Bombshell creations. Use embossing, elements, pastes, fabrics, lace/ribbon, flock, textured papers, anything you want to make your creations beg to be touched.”
I decided to make a card for my Dad. Today, 11 years ago, he passed away. I hate this day with a passion. All I want to do is lock myself in my Mom’s house with her and my sisters and do nothing but cry. But, that’s not going to happen today. I’ve got a busy day with the kidlings, so I suppose that’s a good thing. It may keep my mind off of this awful 24 hours for a little while.
My Dad was a total car guy. He and I used to go to car shows together all the time. I remember doing this even when I was a little girl, when he would put his own car in shows. Today, his ashes are in that very same car.
I used a lot of texture, as per Alex’s challenge. The car is embossed, as is the sentiment. The background is dry embossed with a brick patterned texture plate from Fiskars. I roughed up the edges of that deep purple oval, and of course those 3 cabochons are begging to be touched.
I rubbed some color on to the textured areas to show them off a bit more. If you click on any of my pics, you can see them, and their texture, better.
Tonight I will be back with another Simply B Stamps preview. Please be sure to visit the Bombshell Blog to see all of the fabulous creations that all have a ton of texture. Thanks for a great challenge, Alex!
Daddy, I love you…………………………………. <3
