July Bombshell Hop

Greetings gorgeous Bombshells!!  So glad you've hopped in today!!  First off, if you've come here just to say HI I'm so glad!!  But you'll want to start this amazing hop at the Bombshell Blog here!!   If you've come here from Laura's blog then you are hopping along the correct path!! =)

Today's hop features a beautiful inspirational photo:
Beautiful colors that just *barely* start to make me think and peek forward into fall.  Just a tiny bit =)  So with that said, I took my colors and was in the mood to do some paper doll work!  If you didn't know, Bombshell has a great selection of digital clothing, available here, to dress up your Pin-up!!  They work specifically with the Bombshell Angel stamp set. 

I started with printing my image three times.  Once onto my white cardstock then twice again onto each of my patterned papers.  I colored my image and then dressed her up.  I used my Spellbinders nesties to create a nice little panel for her.
I used rolled flowers - the paper ones I made by hand, the fabric one I purchased, vintage buttons from my Great-Grandmother's sewing basket, twill tape, self-adhesive pearls and a bit of scallop punch as my accents.   
These colors were super fun to work with and very inspiring as I start to think about fall wardrobes!  (you'll notice she's wearing super cute light blue tights!!  =)  YAY! 

Thank y'all for coming by today and checking out my inspiration creation and leaving bits of love!!  Please keep on hoppin' to Fiona's blog to see how she's interpreted this beautiful inspiration photo!!
