Bombshell Stamps March Hump Day Hop

Greetings and Salutations! It's time for the March Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop! If you are looking for the latest SBS challenge, please click HERE. For the Hump Day Hop, I was in the mood for a color I found a beautiful palette from that I think you will enjoy.

Aren't these colors pretty? I thought it was perfect for those that wanted to go the St. Patrick's Day route, but not so green that the hoppers couldn't do something else. 
The participants were to use at least 3 of the colors in the palette. But I was hoping they would go for the "gold" and try to use all five! They had to try to keep their colors as close as possible to those shown above.  Color challenges are great, because you can make anything you want, any theme.

 I used every color! Go me! I really love these colors together, I went for a more subtle Bombshell route for this card. I used the big skull from Sugar Skulls, but I also used a small wing-like shape from Pin-Stripes.

I used watercolor markers and Copics for my skull. And I used a very pretty verdigris embossing powder for the pin stripe. And I must mention, that once again, Phoenix was my helper. I showed him the color pallet, and he chose what sets I should use. He also recommended the rhinestones. Move over Tim Holtz…there’s a new boy in town!

I colored my clear rhinestones with a turquoise Copic. I love to do that. I will always have coordinating rhinestones!
Now it’s time for you to hop along. Please be sure to visit everyone and leave them some love. I will have the new Hump Day Hop challenge on the forum on April 1st. And oh, is it a good one!!! Here is the full list of hoppers.
Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
