Today I am blog hopping with the Bombshells. Our very clever Blog Hop Captain, Kasmello, issued the following challenge:
Pretty In Pink – use pink, pastel, or spring inspired projects.
Doesn’t sound like your “cup of tea” How about an 80’s inspired project…
A lot of different ways that this can be taken…it’s up to you to do your magic.
I love the movie "Pretty in Pink" because I am a product of the 80's, however, for this challenge, I opted to go for color instead. I am not into pink, so why I decided to go this route, I have no earthly idea. This card started out as something else entirely. At 11:00pm I had colored up a Sugar Skull and was trying to situate him on the card, but I just wasn't feeling it. I sat and fiddled with that sugar skull image a good 45 minutes, before throwing in the proverbial ink covered towel. I just knew there had to be something else that would make this card work. After a little shuffling through my Bombshell Stamps I happened upon this image in the Till Death set. I have always loved this image and knew right away that this was the right one for this project. I forgot to mention that I had already securely mounted my sugar skull on my card with foam tape. I didn't want to start over, after all, I really liked the papers and layout so why not remove the sugar skull and go from there? I'll tell you why...! Because foam tape is a mother to get off! I spent an hour using my finger nail and a craft knife to scrape that foamy gunk off without sacrificing the entire card! ARGHHH!! BUT...with a little patience and the the stubbornness of a jackass, I managed to get it done. It is 2:45am at my end of the keyboard and my eyelids are starting to get really heavy. I guess I better finish this post before I nod off and end up with a keyboard permanently stuck to my forehead. Completely embarrassing when you go to Hobby Lobby or Michael's...hahaha!
