August Bombshell Hop! Some Like It Hot Hot Hot!!



Woo Hoo!!!  I'm SO excited to be hopping today with the delicious Bombshell Ladies!!!  Today's theme is as follows:

"August 25th Hop - Some Like it Hot, Hot, Hot....
This is going to be a combined hop with the Girls over at Gauche Alchemy. It should really help drive new people to both sites, so let’s promote the HECK out of it! Tweet it, Facebook it, etc..
With that title you have a lot of options..
Some include:
Any Bombshell ‘cause they are all Hot…(duh) _ BUT NOT NECESSARY to have a Bombshell image Gauche Girls !!!
Summer themes
Flames on the Hot Rod stamps
…and of course Summer colors
(if you have Gauche Alchemy kits...try Banana Hammock, Lady Marmalade or Scarlett Red Fever...)
I don’t know where you live, but it has been blazing here this summer, so hot is definitely on my brain.
There will be of course the chance for a great prize package."


I chose to use Persimmon cardstock from The Paper Source as my card base.  My striped background paper is Basic Grey - always a 'go-to' for me.

I trimmed the flames out freehand and edged them with craft glue and coated them in SU! red glitter.  I used my Girl's Ruin Bombshell set for this card.  My main image is stamped in Momento ink in Tuxedo Black.  She is colored in with my Copics with the edges sponged with SU! Real Red ink.

I matted her to PTI's Summer Sunrise cardstock to make her pop off of the page a bit more.  I then ran a straight stitch in black around the edge to frame her nicely.

I stamped my sentiment 'Girl's Ruin' also in the Momento ink and colored with my Copics.  I also backed it with the same PTI SS for symmetry with my main layer and trimmed them out.

As a final touch, I added red, self-adhesive, pearls to the bottom.

I hope you have enjoyed my HOT creation and please keep on hopping so that you'll be able to see all of the delicious hotness along this hop!!

She is gorgeous and am loving those flames.

Thanks for your comments meredith - the journal isn't actually mine it's my entry into someone else's Circle Journal. Our theme is Rock in Peace and we are only 3 months in so am just about to do my 3rd entry - I suspect another Bombshell and some Gauchey goodness will be making their way in there *g*

I do want to start an art journal which is why I'm excited at Yvonne's new series in the GA newsletter.
