Indian Princess

     Today is a special day.  The Bombshells are having a blog hop to celebrate two new sets of stamps, Indian Warrior and Indian Princess.  Don't you just love these vintage Indians.

  These two sets are available for pre-order right now.  If you cannot wait for the rubber sets, you can purchase the digital images now and get started creating something special right now in time for Thanksgiving.

If you just joined in on the blog hop and would like to start from the beginning just pop over here at the Bombshell Blog to get started.  If you have arrived from Glittery Kate's Blog you are on the right track.

For today's blog hop, I used the Indian Princess stamp set and a faux leather technique. Of course, I wouldn't be the sparkly engineer if I didn't add a whole lot of sparkle so I went to town with my stickles.

 I used a paper tole technique on my Princess so she has loads of layers.  She was colored with my favorite
Prisma pencils and OMS and then I added lots of sparkled to her head dress and jewelry.   Finally I popped her onto a faux leather background I created with Tim Holtz embossing folders and distress inks.

Now it's time to follow the trail on over to Allison's 21st Century Pillow Book and see the beautiful  pendant she is creating.
