Itty Bitty Sketch

It is that time again Bombshell Peeps when the sketch comes out on the blog and the Bombshells strut their stuff with their interpretation of the sketch.   This time I went little bitty. Not intentionally actually.. there is a story.

You see I got my new to me stamps in, and had the lovely Mermaid Anchor to color up. And color her up I did. I turned her top into seashells, and I was so freaking proud. Then I colored her hair and skin and it was all glowy and beautiful. And had colored most of her tail. But then I went to layer a color on it, and apparently I received that marker a tad overfilled. As I was coloring lightly an entire blob of color came out and saturated the area. I worked it and worked it until I thought I had it done. Then I bled some of the marker off and went to finish up the rest of the tail with that color.  Yeah, didn't bleed off enough. a freaking POOL came out of the marker. There was no salvaging this. It had gone up her belly, etc. etc. etc...  So I had to improvise.

I cut her out and made up this tiny gift tag. 2.25 x 3.25.

Now - here comes the best part - - if you take Kathi's sketch - - flip it, flop it, interpret it - use Bombshell Stamps and upload your take on the sketch by the end of the month, and you have a chance to win a wonderful prize - a $20 gift certficate to Bombshell Stamps. You can upload at the Bombshell Stamps Blog or on the forum... or double your chances and upload your take in both places.


Have a great rest of the week, and I hope to see you again here soon.



  1. What a great tag, Alaine!
    Hugs and smiles

  2. Great tag and a great save! I especially love how you morphed her top into seashells. I wonder if she sells those seashells by the seashore. Hmmmm.
