Mary G has challenged the Bombshell team to come up with a Bombshell project that reveals their inner Bombshell!
As a Gemini I find I have two distinct sides to my personality and my crafting! Sometimes I'm neater and nicer and like to go with pretty, glittery and happy. Other times I'm inky, grungey, showing a dark sense of humour and loving skulls and tattoos!
So my Bombshell project is kinda my Gemini self!
I layered multiple Bombshell images by using masking.
First I stamped the Bombshell Bride onto my card with Memento ink.
I stamped her again onto some scrap paper and cut her out to make a mask. A little repositionable Hermafix on the back of the mask and placed it over my stamped image:
Next I lined up where I wanted my second stamped image and stamped her over the mask:
Then I had my two main Bombshells 'Lucky Bride and Butterfly Queen' next to each other:
I stamped Butterfly Queen onto scrap paper and cut her out so I could make a mask for my second stamped image, I could then start stamping over the two Bombshells without making a mess of them. Here are both Bombshells, masked with some of the next layer of stamping going on:
As I progressed I added more masks so that I could over stamp more of the card:
Not all the masks were stamped on scrap and cut out- for smaller images, sometimes all I needed to use were strips of paper to protect an image below:
Once all the stamping was done and the masking removed the card looked like:
The final job was to colour the images in and add some extra images with 3d foam to make the pop off the card
I really enjoy this technique as you get a really dense layered look but you can still focus on the main subjects of the card. It's quite involved but i find it quite relaxing and my 'DH' commented on how quiet the colouring in kept me!!
I've used this technique before:
and if you leave the images uncoloured apart from sweeping with Distress inks it forms a cool background:
