Seasons Greetings! It is time for the very last Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop for 2011! I can’t believe the year is just about over. I had a great time with the theme for the hop. This month, the theme is “Give it to Me, Baby!” What’s that mean? You had to make a gift for someone using your Bombshell Stamps. Even if that someone is you! This also meant no cards. Unless of course, you are making a super snazzy gift card holder, but I wanted the participants to it the old college try and try to make something else. I’m talking jewlery, altered art, mini canvases…anything that you could give to someone as a gift. The possibilites were endless!
I combined this theme with Ms. December’s (Torrey) challenge, which was Hot and Steamy. Quite interesting challenge titles we had this month, no? 😉 Torrey’s challenge was steampunk…which is so very Alison! Here’s what I made….
I used one of those inexpensive wooden frames from Michaels. I started off with coloring my Bombshell, then I moved on to the frame. I covered it in pretty, metallic green paint. Then I painted over it using a sand colored paint with a Tim Holtz clock stencil.
Here’s a close up of my Bombshell. It’s Bombshell Angel, used with one of the costumes in the Halloween Digi set. I used very Victorian colors. Muted, and pretty…but a bit old looking. Not sure if you can tell, but her boots, hat, and arm bands have Glossy Accents on them. I also gave her a monacle.
All of the watch parts that I used were from my Dad. He used to work for Bulova, the watch company, many, many moons ago. He gave me a fabulous bag full of parts forever ago, and I just recently unearthed it from the hole it was hiding in. I squealed with delight, to say the least. I had been looking for it for quite some time. I just knew I had to use these precious pieces on this frame. I attached them all with Glossy Accents. They look really cool in real life.
I hope you like my frame! I wonder who will be receiving it??? One of the gals listed in the hop below! Hmmm….I wonder which project I’ll be getting?! Time for me to hop around to see what the possibilities are! Here is the complete list of participants. Please stop by and leave some love for everyone. And I hope that you will be hopping with us in January! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
