March Bombshell Sketch Challenge

I’ve got the latest Bombshell Sketch Challenge to share with you today. Tomorrow it will be up on the Bombshell blog, but since I have another project due tomorrow, I wanted to give each card it’s own time to shine.

March%2712

 

Here’s my version of the sketch.

I actually kept it really close to  the sketch this time. I only added an additional band at the bottom of the card that I thought my version needed.

I used Rise and Shine for this card. I am really digging this set. I have a few ideas for her, now I just need to find the time to execute them! I colored the image with watercolor markrs and Copics. And I should also mention that Phoenix gave me a lot of help with the color palette. He really loves to choose colors for me, and I think he did a great job! I like to use red and green for things other than Christmas.

My papers are all from a DCWV Christmas Stack. But I don’t think the card looks Holiday at all. Phoenix loves how the card turned out, and I am really happy with it as well.

Remember, the rest of the Bombshell gals and the Pin-Ups will have their versions on the Bombshell Blog tomorrow. Also, don’t forget that Bombshell Stamps is sponsoring the latest CPS Sketch. Click HERE for the deets and HERE to see my version. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

It's fabulous. I don't have that set and you're making me want it now!

Meanwhile, I think it's great that Phoenix helped you choose the colors. He has his mother's eye for color!
Love your take on the sketch and the girls bikini and the colors your chose and the distressing.

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!
