Bombshell Stamps May Blog Hop


   For today's hop the challenge was to goth up your bombshell, add tattoos, heavy eyeliner, and use dark colors.  The hop begins at Allison's blog, The 21st Century Pillowbook, so if you would like to start at the beginning that's the place to go.  If you have arrived here from Kelli's, Cajun Stamping Queen, you are in the right place.

     My take on this challenge was the darker victorian sided of Gothdom. I went with a triptych since I just could make everything I wanted fit onto a card. I used the Bombshell Angel and gave her my version of a victorian morning gown complete with veil and fringed parasol.  
     The background was brayered using Adirondack inks then  a cloud stencil was used with black ink to give it a foggy night look. All three panels were distressed with black ink. The center image has black tree branches stamped behind the central image and colored in with Prisma pencil.
     The fencing for the cemetery was from a Circut cartridge as were the tombstones.  The sentiment is framed with a spellbinders label die and covered in black liquid pearls.  The sentiment itself was generated on computer using the Morpheus font found on the Bombshell Stamp website.  The little bats on the two side panels are from a Martha Stewart border punch.

     Next on your gothic journey is Sugar's Cards and More  Enjoy the rest of the hop and the incredible creativity of the rest of the Ladies.
