***I apologize for this not being up on time. I thought that I had set the time properly, and then I lost my wireless connection, and I guess it didn’t take. Grrr…..and now back to your regularly scheduled blog post.
Ok seriously. Where is this summer going. This is one summer that I wanted to stretch out like a cat basking in a window sill. But alas, it is moving quickly….and since it is the last Wednesday in July, that means it’s time for the always-fabulous Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop! This month, my theme was “Iconic.” I wanted evryone to work their crafty magic by using those itty bitty awesome little icons that come with all of the Bombshell sets. I “allowed” the hoppers to use 1 major image, but I encouraged them (no, there were no whips or chains involved), to not even use 1. All icons. Wanna see what I made?
I am on a bit of a jewelry kick, which, if you know me…shouldn’t be too much of a surprise. Jewelry and Christmas presents. But that’s a whole ‘nuther bag of tricks. Anywho. I broke out my very first (and still one of my most favorite sets) from Bombshell, Pirate’s Life. This pendant also goes hand in hand with the July Pin-Up theme.
I had some more wonderful bleached chipboard from Technique Tuesday, which I stamped my icons on using StazOn. Next I added the eyelets, in an antique gold color. Then I took some Distress Ink and went to town. I used Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain and Weathered Wood. My original four colors, if anyone was curious. Then I embossed the hell out of them with my JudiKins Amazing Glaze, as I did with the other pendant I had up a few days ago. Check out that pretty little number HERE. I attached the pieces together with jump rings, and called this baby done.
So now it’s time for you to hop along to the next stop. The full hop list is below. Enjoy, I know this is going to be a rockin’ hop. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
