Hello! It’s the last Wednesday of the month, so that means it’s time for the latest Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop! This month, the theme I gave was “Celebrations of May.” There are a lot of fun, interesting, and sometimes bizarre holidays in the month of May, so we had to pick one, and create a project based on it. So what did I do? It was May 22nd, and I had yet to pick a holiday. I just didn’t have one that jumped out at me. Turns out, that May 222nd is World Goth Day. How did I not know about this holiday?!?!?!? I am ashamed to admit it, actually. But anyway, their catch phrase is “Get your goth on.” So, of course I took it and ran.
I used Pirate’s Life and Sugar Skulls for this card. Both sets are perfect for a goth-y type project. I jazzed up the pirate gal with a few armbands, purple hair and red eyeshadow. Which, since I’ve colored her, I have really been in the mood to wear. I may need to break it out and smear some on. Yes, I really do have red eyeshadow.
I colored my Bombshell with mostly watercolor markers. I used Copics for her skin.My sentiment was stamped using a Just Rite alpha stamp. And my Sugar Skulls were clear embossed. I wanted to bleach them on to the paper, but for some reason, my black paper wouldn’t bleach out! Go figure.
I distressed the edges of the black paper, and of course, I needed to add some staples for hardware. Now it’s time for you to hop along! Here is the full list of participants in today’s hop.
Enjoy the hop! I will be back later with a new image from SBS! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
