Bombshell Guest DT Challenge

The lovely guest DT over at Bombshell Stamps is Ms Torrey Moseley. Her challenge for December was Steampunk. Oh how I love steampunk art. It's vintage with a twist. I'm rather surprised it's become so popular with the scrapbooking/cardmaking crowd since it's generally been something of a sub-nerd convention culture kind of thing. It was good timing for this challenge though because I've recently been purchasing items to do more Steampunk cards. Here is my entry for the challenge using the Mermaid Treasure stamp set by Bombshell Stamps.

I colored the mermaid with Copics and Magical Micas. I used the Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockets set to made the gears out of vellum and colored them with Rub n Buff. I also altered the buttons with Rub n Buff as well.

Bombshell December Sketch Challenge

Whew! I'm finally getting caught up with my posts. Of course this month, besides a ton of Christmas cards, all I managed to do was the Bombshell challenges. But that is okay cause I love the challenges this month. They were just so much fun to do! For this challenge I couldn't quite decide which color scheme I wanted to go with so I just made two cards. I love how they turned out!

This time I colored the mermaids with Copics and some metallic water colors from Michaels. I used my new steampunk embossing folders and Spellbinders dies to create the gears. I added a bit of rub n buff to create some depth. 

Bombshell Stamps Anything Goes!

Hi everyone. Sorry I've been so AWOL this month. I had school, two jobs, finals, and I got myself a boyfriend so when I've had spare time I've either been working on Christmas Cards (which I did not get out this year), hanging out with my boyfriend, or just trying to relax. I did manage to get projects done for all of the Bombshell Challenge this month except for the blog hop. Here are my cards for the "Anything Goes" challenge. The first two cards I used the Butterfly Queen set and the rest I used my other stamps for.
