August Bombshell Sketch Challenge
I love this company not only because I love the vintage vibe, the gorgeous girls, cars, choppers and tattoo sets but because of the EXTREME versatility of the accessories that come with all of the sets. I love to mix and match sets to create a one of a kind creation each and every time.
My creation for today is a 6x6" card with a base of SU! Creamy Caramel. (I *think* that's the color!) I layered it with taupe, red and blue flowery DP as my main background layer.
I then stamped Butterfly Queen in Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink and colored her with my Copics and Sakura gel pens. I used my corner rounder on all 4 corners and backed it with a medium blue cardstock with the matching corners rounded.
Following the sketch not EXACTLY to a "T" I stamped the Lil' Angel and Lil' Devil images in Momento Ink in Tuxedo Black - also colored with my Copics. They are layered with the same blue DP (corners rounded by hand - hence the imperfections - I forgot to bring my corner rounder with me!) and chocolate DP.
Before I added my images to my cardbase I added a strip of blue polkadottted DP sitting vertically and taupe grosgrain ribbon laying horizontally (you can see both peeking out from underneath our gorgeous Bombshell).
I then added my Bombshell and her two companions Angel and Devil on the left hand side with 3-D foam adhesive.
My sentiment 'No Regrets' is stamped in the same black Momento ink and colored with my Copics is trimmed out and added below with 3-D foam adhesive.
I sat back and looked at my creation. I loved it but it seemed to be lacking something on the right hand side....hmmmmmmmm...
Bing! Here come those accessories to my rescue! I grabbed my long, acrylic block and added the starburst, broken heart, LP record, ribbon and music notes all in a a line. I inked them up with Momento Ink and then trimmed them a bit with a clear, sparkly Sakura gel pen.
I had SUCH fun making this!! I never get tired of those gorgeous Bombshells!!!
