Stars, Stripes, Sea Life & Dragon Scales

Hello again! It's Wednesday, so that means there's a lot going on i my little corner of Bloggy Land. I've got a new A Step in the Dark project, one for Wicked Wednesday, and of course, since it's the last Wednesday of the month, the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop.

The new A Step in the Dark challenge is sponsored by Smeared Ink, and the challenge is Anything Goes. I used the beautiful Tiamat from the Women of Power set. I had so much fun with her. And not just because she's topless. ;)

I colored Tiamat with my Spectrum Noir markers. My background was made with the Scales stencil from Dreamweaver. The "Praise" is from The Symbology of Angels.

She is so powerful looking.....

Now. For Wicked Wednesday, we are sponsored by Aurora Wings, and the challenge is Mythical Sea Creatures.

This beautiful image was also colored with Spectrum Noir markers, in my 2 favorite colors...teal and purple.

I used 2 different colors of Stickles and Liquid Pearls for added magic and dimension.

This 2nd ATC is of course for the Bombshell Hump Day Hop. My chosen theme this month was Stars and Stripes...completely open to interpretation. I used one of the free digis that newsletter subscribers can score, along with the head from the Pirate Bombshell from Pirate's Life.

I colored the images with colored pencils. So how about doin' some hopping? Be sure to check out the blogs I inked above, but also visit the rest of the Bombshell hoppers...listed below. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
