Bombshell's Hump Day Hop!

Greetings! Bombshell's lovely and talented Challenge Captain, Alison, has set this month's blog hop theme, which is a color challenge, based on a fabulous color palette from Design Seeds.

Here's the palette:
You should have arrived here from Monika blog, where you no doubt, saw something totally fabulous!

Here's my card, which features rubber stamps from the Bombshell Patterns and the Hula Girl sets. Apparently, I was only supposed to use colors from the palette above, plus neutrals. However, I'm an anarchist and used green for my leaves.

The Hibiscus Pattern stamp from the Bombshell Patterns set was stamped several times onto Neenah cardstock using Peacock Feathers Distress ink, then colored with Copic markers. It was then diecut using a Spellbinders Corner die, which was part of a set that I got for $10.00. Gotta love a bargain. The four corners were set aside.

The Aloha Banner stamp from the Hula Girl set was stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento ink, then colored with Copic markers. It was also stamped onto Eclipse tape, fussy cut, and the mask was placed over its counterpart. Previously die-cut and saved Memory Box clouds were temporarily adhered to the background, which was then airbrushed with my Copic airbrush system. The masks were all lifted and the clouds were outlined and detailed with CO and CO0 Copic markers.

The corners were adhered, the entire piece was edged with Peacock Feathers Distress ink, and then mounted onto a plain white A2 card.

Thanks for stopping by today! Your next stop on the hop is Alaine's blog, where she's sure to wow and inspire you with her fantastic coloring and great design!
