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 challenge...so I found a beautiful palette from http://design-seeds.com/ 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!

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

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

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 "
