Greetings Bombshell Fans! Today I am bringing you a project that I made to coincide with the February Pin Up, Christine Hill Garner. Her challenge was to create a project using Red & Gold. Here’s what I made.
I used a lot of stamp sets for this clean and simple card, believe it or not. I started of course, with Bombshell Angel. But I wanted to change her outfit, so I printed out a couple of outfits from the Fun ‘N Flirty Bombshell set. I decided I wanted to glitter up the skirt, and add a pattern to her shirt, so I used the zebra print from the Bombshell Patterns set. Last, but certainly not least, I used a sentiment from the Mermaid Treasure set.
With 20/20 hindsight, I should have given her skirt a base color. I of course thought of this after I squished all of that yummy glitter on. Oh well. Next time. As a side note, my kids loved watching my put her clothes together, especially when I showed them how I was putting the pattern on the shirt. I love that my kids enjoy art as much as they do.
I had some scraps from a gold doilie that I used, and that was it. I think her outfit is funky enough without a lot of other papers and such. Please be sure to check out the Bombshell Blog to see all of the other rad Red & Gold creations. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
This is so pretty! Love the gold doily.

Like the way you dressed her up with the doilies
She's fabulous. Great job paper piecing her.
I love the way you used the doily. It looks very Steampunk.
