Late to the Hop!

Eek! I'm late to the Hop. . . the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop that is! This week's theme, set by Angela/Inky Button, our Head Hop Hottie, was "Single Ladies", which meant that we were to use one layer.

Got busy. Got tired. Blah, Blah, Blah. Yeah. Excuses.

But, better late than never! So, without further whinging, here's my take on the theme!

I will say that making a one layer card is not easy for me. I'm a multi-layered patterned paper gal! I used the Mermaid Anchor set by Bombshell stamps. I stamped my images, colored them with Prismacolor pencils blended with Citrus Thinner, used a diecut as a mask over the image, used removable tape as a horizon line, inked an ocean/sunset, pulled off the mask, then chalked the interior sunset. I'm not sure how I feel about it, but it's done! Yahoo!

Thanks for visiting my blog to check my take on the Hop. Now go check out the other Bombshell Hump Day Hoppers!

Here's the list!

  8. I love the bright colors of the sunset, it's so lifelike. I wouldn't guess that this is just a one layer Image.
