Bombshell's Hump Day Hop!

Alison, our lovely and talented Hump Day Hop Head Hottie, has set this month's blog hop theme, which is "A Very Skelly Halloween".

I don't have my "Skelly" project completed for the hop yet, so please return later.

Thanks for returning to see my project, which is a winged warrior skeleton, who is gracing my refrigerator at the moment. The skeleton cast a lot of shadows, which are in the photo. Sorry about that.

I used the Muertos Doll digital stamp set for this project. He was printed out, colored with Copics and palette chalk, cut out, heat embossed with sparkly VersaMark ink and several layers of UTEE. I popped the bones in the freezer so that they would crackle. He was assembled with small star brads, so he can be poseable, though in looking at him, I might have confused my right and left and his wings are likely on upside down. I'm gifted that way. Besides, perfection is overrated. *chortle*

He needed some accessories, so diecut golden wings, jeweled crown, and a silver and gold jeweled sword were added. While looking through my dies, I discovered a skull, so I diecut that and added several layers of UTEE and sparkly eye sockets. The "perfect" is a magnet that we got eons ago when we got one of our Macs. My Muerto's Doll is a magnet now and might end up on a project some day.

While I have your attention, I do have a project to share with you using the brand new digital Peek-a-Boo Geisha set!

The set is flirty and fabulous with three versions of the Geisha for you to use, plus one sentiment. It's a "Steal of a Deal" at $4.99! I'm entering this card in the Asian challenge over at Copic/Promarker forum at Outlawz.

I do plan to finish my "Skelly" project, but meanwhile, be prepared to have your socks blown off your feet with what these talented paople have created to inspire you.

Without further ado, here's the list!

  6. ok- LOVE it Kathi and adore the Geisha as well!

  7. Love your winged warrior skeleton Kathi. Great idea to make a magnet. And the geisha is gorgeous...gotta have her!

  8. Wings on upside down? Left arm on the right? Who cares??? It's totally cute and reminds me of Shakespeare's Hamlet-- "Alas, poor Yorick...I knew him, Horatio". I love the "freezer/crackle" technique. Gotta try it!

  9. Had to come back and see your skelly. I like the wings upside down, otherwise they would be hard to see. I think he is adorable and original and people are bound to comment when they see him on your frig.

  10. Perfect is always in imperfection. And I think he is just perfect. Wings upside down and legs on backwards...he looks happy and that's all that matters! I think you did a great job! And your geisha is stunning! I love how you popped her parasol!

  11. Whoa! Kathi, your Skelly warrior is freakin' amazing! So original and gorgeous! And, of course, your geisha card is beyond fabulous! What a couple of gorgeous projects! Hugz, Cheryl

  12. Your skellie project is lots of fun! A refrigerator magnet is a fab idea for adding some Halloween bling this time of year. Love it!!

  13. Awesome Geisha card! I am definityely adding that set to my wish list.

  14. Woohooo I LOVE your skeleton even if if parts are upside down or turned around,who cares??? He looks GOOOOOOD! And I had to chuckle you popped his parts in he freezer!

  15. Kathi...your Geisha girl is SO beautiful. And, since she's a digital stamp, I can actually afford to go get it! Yippee!! Domo Arigato for sharing your talent with us!
