Hump Day Hop, WW, and Kickstart Day 2

Hello and welcome! It's the last Wednesday of the month so it's time for the first Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop of 2014! Also, since it's Wednesday, I have a new Wicked Wednesday ATC to share, PLUS it's Day 2 of Kickstart your Art with Smeared & Smudged. I combined the S&S piece with my Bombshell project. This month's Bombshell Hop theme was Animal Instincts. I wanted the participants to use at least one of the many animals Bombshell has to offer, or one of our animal patterns. There are many sets that could have been used this month!

As you can see, I used the animal prints from Bombshell Patterns. Those patterns plus the prompt from Kickstart was my inspiration. The prompt was "Hearts." So I decided to combine the two is primal to me. I am deeply in love with my husband, and I totally can feel the animal instincts kicking in with him sometimes. ;)

In addition to the Bombshell Patterns set, I also used Madonna Woodcut (the heart), and All My Heart (see if you can figure out which image that one is. ;) ) I worked chalk, Distress Ink, Glimmer Mist, Memento Ink, and watercolor markers. The full blog roll for the hop is below.

Now for Wicked Wednesday. This week's theme is "Zombies Need Love Too", and we are sponsored by Rick St. Dennis.

Yeesh. I don't know about you...but I will NOT be kissing this guy! Even if he does have chocolate! I colored him with alcohol markers, and added Distress Ink to the finished image.

I used a stencil from Heidi Swapp for my hearts. My sentiment is from Smeared Ink's Lil Grumpies set.
Below is the full Bombshell Hump Day Hop list. Please stop by each person's blog, and leave them some love. Also please visit the WW Gals!  Happy hopping!

Your animal instinct page is fab. I also like the ATC, even if the zombie is a bit gruesome.
