Bombshell "Baby Got Back" Challenge
Good morning! Yesterday I I announced the April Challenge for Bombshell Stamps here on my blog and I promised that I'd be back today with a card. I bet you thought I wouldn't come through....hee, hee...and it certainly wouldn't be the first time I dropped the ball on my blog ;D HOWEVER, I buckled down yesterday evening, and as much as I wanted to reach for one of the thousands of sheets of delectable patterned paper that I have hoarded over the years, I didn't...! I even had insane conversations with myself that went something like this..."maybe just a little tiny piece, nobody will ever notice it", "NO! I can't...I must be good!" , "awe, come on, just tear a little corner off this scrumptious piece of Basic Gray or a little sliver from this piece of glittery My Mind's Eye", "NOOOOO!!! I can't!!! I must adhere to my own challenge guidelines!!!", "okay, okay...you don't have to scream at me...how rude!". But, before you label me as completely certifiable, the voices subsided and I was able to make this card ;D
I used images from the Bombshell Stamps Rise and Shine set, which I have been wanting for a looooong time. It arrived in the mail a couple of weeks ago and I literally jumped for joy when I opened it! I love this beautiful bombshell reclining in the hammock waiting for the sun to come up...wish I looked that good in the mornings...lol! I colored the image with my Copics and popped the image of the bombshell and the "Rise and Shine" banner. I also cut out one more image of the bombshell's crossed leg and popped it as well, to make it appear that her legs were actually crossed. I sponged a white panel with Dried Marigold Distress Ink and then stamped the tiny solid flower in the same ink randomly on top. The flower is also included in the Rise and Shine set. All of the sets come with a fabulous main image and then several complimentary images that work perfectly together. I'm really happy with how this card came together and I think I may even try another card sans patterned paper next week ;D
