Bombshell's May Sketch and Muse Monday

Greetings! I have 2 Bombshell projects to share with you today. The first is the Sketch Challenge for May. I used one of the newest (for me) sets, Growing Hearts.

I had a good time coloring this image. Isn't it fun to get new stamp sets? I colored the woman and my banner with my watercolor markers.

She looks so serene. I also used one of the banners from Banner Sayings and the sentiment if from Rose's Portrait.  Did you know that Banner Sayings is on sale right now? It is a wonderful set...for more than just Bombshells!

On to Muse Monday. This month, I chose to have the Design Team work with Ahoy Sailor. Another new to me set. I decided to make a tag.

My mom loves this set, so I think I will give her this tag, and make her a few more things for her.

She is colored with watercolor and alcohol markers, and I inked a bit of blue and Pumice Stone (Distress Ink) on top of the image. For the tag itself, I stamped the small icons from the Ahoy Sailor set with embossing ink, embossed the images with clear powder, and then inked on top of the tag with Distress Ink. Then, I spritzed it with some Stormy Weather Memory Mist.

I added a star button, and some eyelash yarn, and then I was finished. It's a pretty simple tag, but I like it. Be sure to visit the Bombshell Blog to see more interpretations of this month's Sketch Challenge and Muse Monday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
