Rise and Shine

Hey there. I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Quick post right now to share my take on the Bombshell Stamps February Sketch Challenge. Here is my entry. I loved the symmetry of the sketch this month and will be using it more in the future.

The lovely lady is Ms. Rise and Shine, as are the portholes. I went fairly simple with the coloring and used only a few colors. B91,93,95 and Y32, 35. Her hair is E11, 13, 15 and her skin is E50, 51, 53.
The only thing a little mixy is that I first colored under her outfit with E51. Then I went over it with the C0, 1 and 3 family. This was to make it a little sheer. Then I added the "lace" at the top and leg with a Multiliner pen.

I picked this set mainly because of the portholes and how the circle mimicked them. I thought it added some additional umph to the sketch. I found this rope looking fiber sitting around and used it to "hang up" the hammock. I gave this card to a co-worker who loves the 50s pin up style.

Thanks for stopping by. You should go check out what all the other lovely Bombshells have done with the sketch over at the Bombshell Blog or the Bombshell Forum. And... if you enter, you might have a chance to win some RUBBER. Nothing bad with that!

Talk to you soon.

  1. I always learn something new from your blog, this time you made your own lace and it looks fantastic - nice added touch. The card is awesome and, as always, you did an amzing job coloring and setting up the card.
