Bombshell Hotness

Hey there everyone. I haven't made a big deal about this yet, because this is my first OFFICIAL post, but I have been honored to be selected to be a full time member of the Bombshell Design Team. I am so extremely thrilled with this. I LOVE their stamps, and everyone on the design team is so incredibly talented. It is really exciting to be a part of this wonderful group of ladies! 
Every month, in addition to just having fun with the stamps, the Bombshells bring you a couple of challenges. The first is a Sketch Challenge, and the second is a challenge selected by the monthly pinups. For this post I am concentrating on the Sketch Challenge.

Kathi came up with this very wonderful Sketch:

I used Girls Ruin for this sketch, and a couple of pieces (little ones) from other stamp sets. For the Main image, I colored it with my Copics.  Before coloring it I added some squigglies in the top and the tops of the hose as well as some scallops on them as well. This was to make it look like lace.

I colored her entire body with the E000, E00, E01 first. This included her chest and legs. Once I was done and had them looking the way I wanted, I went over her chest and the hose with C0, C1 and C3. This made them look like they were transparent with the skin showing through. The shoe is R22, 24, 27, 29 and 39 along with C3, 5,7,9. Once I was done with all of the coloring, I layered it on red cardstock, and then decided I did not like it, so cut through both layers. This gave it a little more heft and made it easy to stick down and stay. I then went back over the shoe and her hose and bra with a little clear Spica. It made it shiny and sparkly. You can really see that on the red shoe in the close up picture.  On the red squares I used black liquid pearls. I need to practice a bit more on this. I will say it looks much more even in real life than this picture indicates. The camera shows every flaw.
Please head on over to the Bombshell Stamps Blog On Wednesday April 13 to check out what the other ladies have done.  You can also check out the Bombshell Stamps Forum which is always hopping with great ideas!

 THANK You for stopping by. I hope you are having a great week! And I hope to see you back soon!
