It's all about paint at Bombshell Stamps!

Welcome!  This month's pin-up girl at Bombshell Stamps is Anita Marie and she is asking us to play with paint.  I've actually been playing with quite a bit of paint lately, so I was armed when she issued this challenge.  I used acrylic paint on my hearts and then topped them with a thick coat of Distress Crackle Paint in Rock Candy .

My image du jour is from the Lucky Bride set.  This is the second time I have used her on a card and I just love her!  I know she is supposed to be a bride, but I like using her as a Spanish senorita instead.  She's way fun to color, too!  That crazy cool background image with the skulls and crossbones is from Carmen's Veranda.  I snagged that awesome stamp at the rubber stamp convention a couple of weeks ago.  I couldn't wait to use it.  I think it's going to stay pretty inky, 'cuz I plan to use it a lot!  LOL!  Did you catch that cool skull charm in the middle of the heart?  Isn't it great?!  I have a fairly decent collection of skull beads now, so that came from my stash and for the life of me I can't remember where I picked it up.  I have a few more left, though, which is great.  Yay!

Head to the Bombshell Stamps Blog and check out what the DT put together for you.  Also, while you're out and about, tooling around in Blogland, swing by Anita Marie's blog.  She has awesome stuff to share with you and inspire you.

Okay, folks, that's it for today.  I have something special to share with you tomorrow, so do come back ;D  Until then, stay crafty!
