Here are some MORE Bombshells!!!

This is a Mexican alter that I bought from 3dJean ages ago.
I knew I wanted to use my Sugar Skull and Alter Skull Bombshell sets with it!

~First of all I used watered down PVA glue to stick strips of old book text to it:

~I then painted the shrine with Tim Holtz Distress Inks (I used an aquabrush to pick up the colour from the inkpad).
~I stamped the Sugar Skull, Words and the candle stamps with Staz-On onto some white Fimo.
~I cooked the Fimo as directed on the packet then used Lumiere paints on the Sugar Skull (for some glitter!) and colours from my Distress Inkpads on the Candle and Sign.

~I stamped the rose from Love & Luck onto red foil using Staz-On twice.
I cut out the WHOLE rose AND I cut the centre out of the other and mounted this onto top of the whole rose using silicon glue (for depth)
I stamped the leaves out on Green foil and cut them out and then mounted the rose and leaves onto the shrine.

I added a couple of little paper roses and the shrine was done!
Hope you enjoy!!
