Bombshell Stamps Blog Hop - Ring In The New

Greetings Luscious Bombshell Fans!!  So glad you're here today hopping with us! Hopefully you've hopped here from my dear friend Mary's blog and if you haven't please start your hopping experience right here

 I've made a creation using the following SCS challenge as my muse.  So that's one of my "new" things is trying to incorporate some SCS challenges into my creating schedule.  And if you check out the challenge you'll see that it's an inspiration challenge based on Belleek Pottery.  I'd never heard of it before so it was very interesting to learn about as well as inspiring!!!

Here is the creation that I made.  It's a birthday card for my Dad's upcoming birthday!
I used this technique to capture the cool texture in the background.  I inked up Homeward Bound and had THE BEST TIME coloring in and practicing my shading.  

After coloring my image I matted it with some blue DP and stitched around the edges anchoring the corners with small silver brads.

 I stitched my background down, added a navy blue Grosgrain ribbon tied into a knot and anchoring it (lol! no pun intended) with a mini clothespin.  I added a few floating pearls on the top left and bottom right corners for extra detailing.
Thanks so much for popping in today!!  Glad you're hopping along!  Now off you go to the amazingly fabulous Cheryl's blog!  She is an AMAZING artist and will WOW you for SURE!!! 

Thanks, in advance, for any comments and love!

Crafty Hugs!

I like how you colored the background a different color. It makes the image pop and does something a bit different than normal.
