I'm not actively on the design team for Bombshell Stamps anymore, although I still dabble in some digital stuff for them. But, in my heart, I will ALWAYS be a Bombshell Girl. Always. This month, they came up a little short on design team projects for their monthly sketch challenge, so I volunteered to make a card. Part of the reason they fell shy this month is that one of the beloved Bombshell Girls is laid up in the hospital. So, join me in sending up good thoughts and well wishes to Miss Katie!!
Here is the sketch for this month's challenge...brought to us by El Capitain Kathi. Please join us with your OWN version of this sketch for a chance to win some Bombshell stamps!! Yippee!! Just go on over to the Bombshell blog, leave a comment, and go create a card or layout, or whatever...using this sketch (and your Bombshell Stamps).
I decided to use one of my very favorite (okay...2 of my very favorite) stamp sets from Bombshell...Koi Tattoo and Lotus Garden. I pretty much followed the sketch.
OKAY, people...for me, this is following the sketch!
I stamped the images onto black cardstock using Versamark ink, then I heat embossed them with detail gold embossing powder. I added a few Versamark/embossed stamped coins to complete the sketch...and one extra in the upper right corner to balance it all out.
