Bombshell's Hump Day Hop!!

Welcome to the first blog hop for this new term of Bombshell Stamps' new Design Team members!! Not only did some of the design team change, but also our Blog Challenge "Captain" changed as well- we had to say goodbye to Angela (aka Inky Button) who did a great job coming up with the challenge ideas for the blog hop over the past 6 months. She has passed her crown on to Kas who will be our fearless leader for this term. Kas is an artist and a fabulous stamper. I KNOW that her creative mind will come up with some fun, funky, and probably over-the-top challenge ideas for us!!

Okay, here is our first challenge..."Metallica-rt". Our challenge was to make something using metal, metal accents, metal embellishments, or even "Metal" music...Here is my submission for this challenge:


I used the hot rod image from Bombshell's Speed Shop hot rod stamp set. The image is stamped onto GP110 white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. I used a silver metallic Spica pen to outline the "chrome" on the car. I sponged the edges of the image using black ink and layered it onto SU's Silver Metallic cardstock and then onto Basic Black. I added some silver brads from the SU Hodgepodge kit and some screw brads to the other corners. The card base is Basic Black, with a layer of patterned paper from the SU black and white DSP set (I can't ever remember the names of the DSPs- sorry!) I embossed a piece of the silver metallic CS in the Cuttlebug using the Diamond Plate embossing folder, then added a couple more screw brads. I inked the "Hot Rod" portion of the Hot Rod Classic stamp from the Speed Shop stamp set and stamped it onto white cardstock and then attached a square frame from the SU Hodgepodge kit using silver brads. I think this works for the "Metallica-rt" challenge, don't you think?

Since I am unable to post the entire blog list, please go to Kas' blog to start the blog hop. You will NOT be disappointed!! Oh! Don't forget, leave a comment on each of the blogs for a chance to win a fabulous prize from Bombshell Stamps!
