August Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop: Cowboys and Indians!

Hello Bloggy Friends! It's time for the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop! This month, I chose the theme "Cowboys and Indians," which is easy since there are so many Bombshell stamps (rubber and digi!) that fit this category. My project for today features the Indian Princess set.

I decided to stamp her on an old page from a book. I then colored her completely with Distress Inks and Cut-N-Dry Nibs (I love those little suckers).

The colors I used were Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint Festive Berries, Broken China, Mustard Seed, Black Soot and Pumice Stone.

I also used one of the beeeee-utiful feathers that comes in the set to make the background on my card base. I embossed it with Queen's Gold, from Ranger. Gives just the right amount of shine. Now it's time for you to hop along! Below is the full list of participants. Please be sure to visit each one and show them some love. Thanks for topping by, and have an inspiring day!

Wow. It's wonderful!

I really love her on text paper and love how you colored her.

Have you gotten that thingy that holds the nibs? If not, RUN and get one from Mike's. It's a life changer!

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!
