April Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop: Color Challenge

Hello! It's the last Wednesday of the month (and my husband's birthday!), so it's time for the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop. This month, I gave us a color challenge. I love doing those! Here's the palette, from Design Seeds.

I challenged the participants to use at least 3 of these lovely colors...though more is always better. The only shade that I didn't use is the gray.

I used Bombshell Angel and the Fun 'N Flirty digi clothes. I also used 2 stamps from the Cherry Bomb set, and the zebra print from Bombshell Patterns.

I colored my images using a mix of watercolor markers and alcohol markers. I love this outfit. It's sassy.

It's hard to tell, but the main card is cream. I thought white would have been too stark. But, I think it should have been a smaller card. Though, I do love that dotted paper. It's nice to see so much of it. Now it's time for you to keep hopping. And, if you have some Bombshells of your own to play with (you can get some free digis by signing up for the newsletter!), perhaps you will join us next month! Below is the full hop list. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
