Two For Tuesday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Two-For Tuesday Blog Hop! The Bombshell Girls and Pin-ups are thrilled to join forces with Altered Pages Artsociates to hold a huge blog hop that showcases Bombshell Stamps together with digital backgrounds from Altered Pages! Here's a little blurb about Altered Pages.

I used Halloween ATCs along with my beloved Bombshell, Pirate's Life. I also used the Hat from Holiday Accessory and the little Bone Element from Sugar Skulls. I decided to print the Altered Pages images small so that I could use them as a cool patchworked background. And of course, the Pirate makes the perfect witch!

I colored my Witch/Pirate with my Spectrum Noir markers and one orange Copic. I embossed the Bone Element for a bit o' dimension, and my black background has been sprayed with Iridescent Memory Mist from Dreamweaver.

 I really like my background, with all of those little vintage images. This is a fabulous image sheet that I will certainly be using again! Now, on to the fine print of the hop....

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!
