Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop

Welcome to the Bombshell Hump Day Hop! The Bombshell Design Team Members are bringing you a fabulous hop each and every Wednesday! View rockin' projects at each stop along the way and leave comments to win a fab prize.

This week our theme was created by Jacquie, Ms.October, and is a "Color Challenge" - since it is the month of Halloween...(and I LOVE halloween), the color challenge will be to use Orange, Black, Green and Purple (Optional).

Here's how it works:
Start at any of the Design Team Member Blogs and take a peek at their Hump Day project. Leave them a comment and tell them what you think about it! Then follow the links to the other DT member blogs and leave them comments. The more comments you make, the more entries you will have to win a great prize from Bombshell Stamps at the end of the month!

I'm so excited to see what everyone comes up with!! -you never what's gonna be around the next blog corner! So stop by, add your comment, and then hop on over to the other Bombshell DT Member blogs, and don't forget to join us again next week!!!

So this week The Bommbshell Girls are sharing with your the mistakes and horrors that we ALL have lurking at the back of our craft cupboards:

What was I thinking?

We've all done it; made one of those purchases that just seem perfect in the middle of a store with a coupon in hand. Then, when you get home, you look at it and say, "What was I thinking?" So that's our challenge for this week. We've pulled that purchase out of your stash and got crafty with it BOMBSHELL STYLEE!!

So I FINALLY dug out the shrink plastic! This was an impulse purchase from a close out sale at a local craft shop. Whilst the plastic shrinks perfectly without to much unnerving curling and crazy whipping about- it seems however to be allergic to any colouring medium!! No matter what medium I use and no matter the technique I use to apply this shrink plastic repels it!!!
So when faffing around with the plastic I stamped on it with black Staz-On and didn't bother to colouring it, then I shrank it. I really liked the effect- my 'DH' said it looked a little like Scrimshaw (so he got a big kiss for being so nice!!).

The earrings were made using a Skull die from QuicKutz which I stampedwith the flowers from the Hula Girl Bombshell Stamp set.
The keyring was also made from shrink plastic cut with the QuicKutz Revolution and stamped with stamps from Retro Cowgirls and A Pirate's Life Bombshell sets.
I threaded the shrinkies onto Tim Holtz Swivel Clasps and attatched various other Tim Holtz charms (I love their grungey look!)
Remember to punch a hole in the Shrinkies BEFORE you shrink them so you can thread a jump ring through. Make this hole larger than normal to allow for shrinkage!

What a great way to use your shrink plastic. Gives me a way I could use mine that is just sitting somewhere.

Oh my! I love that keychain. It's awesome. I love the shrunken Bombshell images. Sooooo cool.

The earrings are great too and they do look like scrimshaw at a fraction of the price!
