Bombshell Hump Day Hop AND Caardvarks' Sketchfest Tuesday -- Take #2!

Oooh. So much going on. *grin*

Yep. It's officially Wednesday, so that means it's time for the Bombshell Hump Day Hop! This week Inky Button, aka Angela, challenged us to use glitter and bling! Since I'm a human magpie, who loves all things glittery, shiny, and blingy, I was up for the challenge. I will say that I'll be finding glitter everywhere for the foreseeable future.

I decided to use Caardvarks' Sketchfest Tuesday sketch again. Here's the result!

I'm not so sure if I love this one, but it's done and it does use a ton and a half of glitter. The witch hat, bats, broom, and bones are all from the Holiday Accessories set by Bombshell Stamps. The broom and hat were colored with Copics. Then I added Prisma Glitter to the hat and black and purple glitter to the floor to be swept up. The bats were stamped in VersaMark and then heat embossed with pretty glittery black embossing powder. The bones were stamped with white pigment ink and the I colored in the bones with the same ink, added sparkly embossing powder, and heat set it. There are also glittery stickers in the corner. The patterned papers are by K & Company & Doodlebug. The sentiment stickers (which I should have distressed) are by Making Memories.

Now that you've seen my entry, here's the list of the Bombshell Hump Day Hoppers!
