My dear friend Alex is a Pin-Up once again for Bombshell Stamps, and I am beyond thrilled about it. As Pin-Up for the month of October, she has the privilege to choose a challenge for us to all participate in. She decided to go with “Halloween Bling,” which just sounded fabulous to me.
I used one of the outfits from Halloween Costume from Bombshell Stamps. I’ve gotta be honest. I love how my witch came out. And I love the papers I chose. But, I am not happy with the end result. I don’t know if it’s the layout, the combination of the papers with the colors of the image…I’m just not happy with it. But, I’ll give you a closer look at the witch so you can see some of the “bling” I used.
If you click on the picture, you will see it bigger. I received some FABULOUS gifts from my very thoughtful friend Kathi last week, and they included Bedazzlers from Ranger (Suze Weinberg). So I chose my colors based off of one of those little jars of bling-y goodness. I used watercolor markers and Copics to color her in. And I embossed the edge of her background with glittery embossing powder.
I used the same embossing powder around my sentiment (from Stampendous!), and I dotted Turquoise Stickles. My paper has lots of lovely foil which really makes the whole card shine. But again, I am not happy with the end result. Which is ok. I’ll just let it sit for a while and maybe I can fix it. If nothing else, my Bombshell looks pretty rad. Thanks for an awesome challenge, Alex!
Now it’s time for you to continue hopping. Please be sure to visit the Bombshell Blog to see what many of our DT members have created for this challenge. And then of course, there are all of the wonderful Wicked Bloggers from the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. They are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!

The colors on this are outstanding. I would never have thought of those colors for a Halloween card, but they are fantastic. I really like the gold and blue metallic in the paper, it makes it even more magical.
the color combo you used to fabolous! i really like that image, you may not be happy with it, but i am 😉
I think it turned out wonderful, great coloring on your image! And I love the bling you added around her neck, bottom of her skirt, and hat. I think you did a great job!

Alison, I think the card is gorgeous – colors, layout, papers and bling. I don't know if you do this but if I've spent too much time on something, I have to walk away and come back later to see if i like it. So I think your plan of leaving it be for awhile is good!
Ooo La La!! Gorgeous witch!!
