Wicked Wednesday and Bombshell Stamps April Sketch

Greetings bloggy friends! I have 2 projects to share with you today. There is a new Wicked Wednesday challenge, and the April Bombshell Stamps Sketch has been revealed! Let's start with Bombshell. Here's this month's sketch.

Here's my take on it using the Homeward Bound set.

I stamped the ship on old book paper and colored it with Distress Ink. The banner was colored with alcohol markers.

I love coloring with Distress Inks. As I was doing my project, my daughter was watching. She decided to create her own Bombshell project, and used Distress Inks for the first time!

This week's Wicked Wednesday challenge is Crazy Craniums, and we are sponsored by Smeared Ink.

My focal image is from Smeared Ink/Rick St. Dennis' Morte rubber set. My sentiment is from the Creepy Lil Grumpies set, and the tombstone is from Inkadinkado.

I used only a white pen to color the focal image. The other 2 were embossed with a seafoam white embossing powder. I distressed the focal image and the background paper with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

These are both great challenges! I hope you will play along with me for either (or both!). Please visit the Bombshell Blog and the Wicked Wednesday Blog for more fab projects and rules. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Great idea for these images. Love how you just used a white pen on the skulls.

Thought I'd pop over to say hi and say the cranium image you used by RSD is perfect....I didn't realize you only used a white pen. Clever indeed!

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!
