Greetings and Salutations! It’s time for the March Bombshell Stamps Hump
Day Hop! If you are looking for the latest SBS challenge, please click HERE. For
the Hump Day Hop, I was in the mood for a color challenge…so I found a
beautiful palette from http://design-seeds.com/ that I think you
Aren’t these colors pretty? I thought it was perfect for those that wanted to
go the St. Patrick’s Day route, but not so green that the hoppers couldn’t do
The participants were to use at least 3 of the colors in
the palette. But I was hoping they would go for the “gold” and try to use all
five! They had to try to keep their colors as close as possible to those shown
above. Color challenges are great, because you can make anything you want, any
I used every color! Go me! I really love these colors together, I went for a
more subtle Bombshell route for this card. I used the big skull from Sugar
Skulls, but I also used a small wing-like shape from Pin-Stripes.
I used watercolor markers and Copics for my skull. And I used a very pretty
verdigris embossing powder for the pin stripe. And I must mention, that once
again, Phoenix was my helper. I showed him the color pallet, and he chose what
sets I should use. He also recommended the rhinestones. Move over Tim
Holtz…there’s a new boy in town!
I colored my clear rhinestones with a turquoise Copic. I love to do that. I
will always have coordinating rhinestones!
Now it’s time for you to hop along. Please be sure to visit everyone and
leave them some love. I will have the new Hump Day Hop challenge on the forum on
April 1st. And oh, is it a good one!!! Here is the full list of hoppers.
