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....
