Bombshell Stamps Challenge!

Holley Barnhart, Bombshell Stamps' Ms. February, has shared her challenge over on the Bombshell Stamps Blog. Her challenge is called Bring The Heat.

You should play along with her challenge! Share your artwork with us for a chance to win a fabulous prize.

Here's my card using the Bombshell Angel set and the All My Heart set.

This is the first card that I've created after my second cataract surgery which has given me a pair of bionic eyes that have marvelous distance vision. I still need spectacles for mid-distance (computer and cooking) and reading and will also need to make a spectacle of myself sporting fabulously cool sunglasses!

As soon as the doc said I could drive (Driving sans specs is beyond weird and it's kind of totally amazing to wake up and be able to see well with both eyes!), I hied to the nearest Dollar Store and bought four pairs of readers in various strengths for a buck each. It was timely since we got a freakin' !#$% foot of snow yesterday here in New Jersey. I hate driving in snow AND I have discovered that snow is really, really bright and sparkly!

Anyways, these two images are the first that I've colored and fussy-cut. The card is simple, but my eyes tire really easily.

Basically, I stamped the cherub from the Bombshell Angel set and the flying flaming heart from the All My Heart set, colored both imges with Copic markers, fussy cut them, airbrushed a B21 Copic marker background, used sticker letters, and called it done!

It's not my best work ever, but since I worried that I would not be able to paper craft post surgery, I think it's pretty darned wonderful.

Thanks to visiting today!
