July Pin Up Challenge with Bombshell Stamps

Hello! Today I am sharing the latest Pin-Up challenge from Bombshell Stamps. As you probably know, each month, Bombshell has a guest Pin-Up, that gets to create a challenge for everyone to play along with. Well, this month, we have Susie, and she has chosen something super cool. Your challenge is to make jewelry using your Bombshell Stamps and paper. No altered pre-made jewelry. I did ask Susie if chipboard was ok, and she said yes. So that's what I used. 




I used the focal image from Mi Amor. I stamped her with black StazOn by laying the stamp on my crafting table and bringing my piece of chipboard to her, to ensure proper placement. Then I went to town by using my brightest colors of Distress Inks. I applied those with my Cut-N-Dry Nibs. 




I used 10 colors of Distress Inks. After I was done coloring, I applied abut 5 layers of Amazing Glaze from Judi Kins. It's an embossing powder that looks like glass when you apply more than one layer. My favorite embossing powder, for sure! You can see the shine on the piece in this photo. 



Before I had applied the Amazing Glaze, I punched a hole in the top of the pendant and added an eyelet. After all was said and done, I added a jump ring and a simple black cord. I love how vibrant the colors look on this. And it looks like it's painted ceramic in real life. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Bombshell gals over at the Bombshell Blog, to see even more amazing pieces of jewelry. And then, please play along! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
