September Bombshell Hump Day Hop: Let's Hear it for the Girls!

It's the last Wednesday of the month, so you know what that means. It's time for the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop! Last month, it was all about the boys... well this month, in anticipation of October, the theme is "Let's Hear it for the Girls!" This theme is a little more specific than last month's though. I wanted the participants to create a project which could be sent to someone in October which is (here in the States) Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So let's Think Pink!


 I recently acquired the All My Heart set from Bombshell and this is the first opportunity I have had to use it. I thought that it would be perfect for the message we were trying to convey this month.


I colored this heart with watercolor markers and Copics. The color is a bit off from what it looks like in real life....but you get the idea.


The die cut ribbon is from Sizzix, and the corrugated cardboard was a great find that my mom gave me. I punched the stars out of metallic gold paper as well as using it for the large circle under the heart. It really shimmers! So this is a pretty different look from what I normally do for Bombshell. I am tempted even now to add a bit more "stuff" but I don't want it to become garish.
There are 16 total stops on this hop! The full list is below. So you better get going. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

So lovely! I love how the elegance of the gold paper complements the "grunge" look of the cardboard. Great textures.
