Bombshells and 2Sketches4U

Since I am still resting up from my back-killer of a weekend I spent some time playing with my new stamps.

I was dying to use this whimsical frame and le bandit left I got from Just Johanna's Odd Bird Planet so when I saw Laura's sketch I just had to play along. Here's my card:



I've been really enjoying the different tones I get when I stamp on kraft paper instead of watercolor.

I also wanted to try out making a layered image using the A Pirate's Life and holiday accessories from Bombshell Stamps. This was a ton of fun because after I made her she seemed small and fairy-like. The boys even said,"aww, she's adorable." To play off of that, I used a large tree pattern from Basic Grey hopefully implying she's about three inches tall.

How fun are these!

I esp love the bombshell card. She looks great with that paper. I have it, and found it too challenging to use. I flipped it and used the solid side.
