Greetings, cyber friends! I am excited to share Ms. July’s Challenge for Bombshell Stamps. Michelle’s challenge to us is Red, White, and Blue! Perfect since Independence Day (here in the USA) is tomorrow. I decided to create a fun pair of earrings using the Ahoy Sailor set.
I’ve got to be honest. When I first got this set, I wasn’t sure how often I would use it. I’m not really into the nautical thing. But I LOVE this set! If you frequent my blog, you will have seen that I have used it quite a bit since I have received it. It’s a lot of fun to work with. Don’t be afraid to give it a try!
Here’s me wearing the earrings, just so that you can see the scale of them. They are definitely shoulder dusters! But that’s ok…I love long earrings. I made my little charms using white Shrinky Dink paper. I stamped the images using Memento ink, and colored them with Spectrum Noir and 1 Copic marker. I really need to get the “Reds” set of Spectrum Noirs!
The Shrinky Dinks didn’t shrink perfectly…my images are slightly distorted. Not sure why…it could have been because of the paperclip I inserted into the hole of each charm as I heated it with my embossing gun. But, I still think they look cool. Now, head on over to the Bombshell Blog to see what some of my other Teamies have created for this fun and patriotic challenge. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
