Hello Lovely Crafty Friends!! I'm here with you today to bring you a Vintage Bombshell creation that I made as a custom order for a darling friend. I started with Bombshell Angel. A classic, a treasure and the most fabulous "go-to" in my Bombshell Collection.
I started by trimming out a few different ovals using my Cricut. I decided on the size that I needed and stamped Angel in Momento ink. I then colored her completely using my Copics. I decided to paper piece her bathing suit so I then stamped her onto purple embossed cardstock. I trimmed out her suit, ran very lightly over it with a paper nail file to bring out the embossing a bit, popped it into my Xyron sticker machine to evenly apply adhesive to the back and then adhered it on. Once I looked at it I realized that it was SCREAMING for me to glaze up the suit! To continue on with her super glam look I took my quickie glue pen and glittered up her shoes in sparkly red SU! glitter. I added a tiny pearl to the gorgeous purple flower in her hair and VOILA! A gorgeous Bombshell!!!
After I assembled my background using a mixture of G45 - Fashionista paper along with some sparkly purple cardstock, lots of stitching and some super vintage embellishments I worked on my sentiments. My Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Banner Sayings set. I stamped it on ivory/tanish cardstock - paper that kind of looks like old pirate map paper. I shaded and colored the corners and glazed it up. I then trimmed the banner out and placed it just above the "bombshell" stamp so the entire sentiment says "Happy Birthday Bombshell".
I continued my theme for the inside keeping it simple yet fun. I used three different Nestie circles using matching papers from the front and dark stitching to pull in the front.
I added a stamped flower colored in the same tones to match the flower in her hair. I added a larger pearl as an added little touch.
I hope you all enjoy my vintage creation today!! I had so much fun especially since this was a custom order!!!
I hope you all enjoy and have been inspired!!!
