Bombshell Muse Monday and DICC #78

Happy June! I have 2 projects to share with you today. The first is for this month's Bombshell Stamps Muse Monday, and the second is for Desert Islands Crafters Challenge. This month, the Muse Monday set is Homeward Bound. This is a set I was a bit wary about, until I started to use it. I quickly fell in love with it, and it's now one of my favorites.

I decided to go in a new direction and have the ship sailing in the rain. I purposely did not ink up the sun, to add to the bit of gloom I was trying to achieve.

I used a lot of grays and some creams to mute down the colors. It was all colored with alcohol markers. I also clear embossed rain drops on top of the ship, as well as on my background by using the Rain stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils.

The chain is from the Homeward Bound set as well. The set has several smaller images that are so fantastic. It's one of the reasons I love to use it. My fabulous ribbon is from May Arts. I didn't glue it down too much, because I wanted it to flutter and have movement. Like the sails and the rain. Remember, the Homeward Bound set will be on sale for the entire month, so be sure to grab it if you don't already own it.

For DICC, we are sponsored by The Stamping Chef. We will be taking the Summer off after this challenge. You'll have to go to the DICC blog to see the itinerary, but know that I used #'s 2, 6, 8, 9, and 10. My image is called The Big Teese.

I don't know why, but my colors look totally mismatched. They actually look great together in person, so you'll have to take my word for it. I colored the image with watercolor markers, and I broke out another stencil from Dreamweaver. This one is called Gears, and I applied a fabulous copper colored metallic embossing paste, also from Dreamweaver.

She how the paste shines? Again, my ribbon is from May Arts. The dies I used to cut my ovals are also from Dreamweaver....they are really expanding their die selection, and I am thrilled about it. Please be sure to visit both the Bombshell Blog as well as the DICC blog to check out what my teamies have created. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
