"Wild Thing" challenge!

Bombshell Stamps' Ms. June, Emily, set this month's "Wild Thing" challenge. We were dared to create a project using an animal print stamp.

Here's mine!

I decided to use the "formal pin-up with fan" from Bombshell's Lucky Bride and dress her in leopard print silk! I stamped the leopard print stamp from Bombshell's Bombshell Patterns set several times with StazOn black ink onto Shantung Silk specialty paper by FiberMark. This paper has the sheen and feel of real silk! I then stamped the pin-up onto plain white cardstock and colored her with Copic markers. A touch of glitter pen was added to her eyelids and a few gemstones were added as bracelets. Then I stamped the pin-up onto the leopard print stamped silky paper, cut out her dress, headpiece, and fan, and paper pieced her back together again.

The pin-up was cut out, popped up on dimensional foam, and adhered to a metallic black cardstock oval die cut. I used the other part of the leopard stamped sheet for the die cut, which was edged with Stickles (that I actually left overnight to dry. See? I can exercise patience!). A border punch was used on both sides of the plain silk paper and mounted onto a black metallic card.

By the way, if you play along with Ms. June's challenge AND share it at either Bombshell's Blog or on the Bombshell Forum, you can be entered for a chance to win a free set of your choosing!

Thanks for visiting today!
