August Bombshell Blog Hop

I can't believe that it's the end of August already-where does the time go?!
I still owe you a tutorial on the splodgy backgrounds, I'm totally blaming our holiday to Dorset cos it chilled me out so much that time got away from me ;)

So this month's Blog Hop challenge from Alison is based on the movies, here's what Alison says:

It's time for a new Bombshell Hump Day Hop challenge! This month, the theme is "Put Me in the Movies." Take a movie, and/or movie poster, and use it to inspire your Bombshell Stamps project! Any of your stamp sets will work! And, you can make anything you want!

To get the inspiration flowing...think about using a hot rod set for Cars 2, Sugar Skulls for a horror flick, ship for a Pirate's of the Carribean movie, etc. And that's not even mentioning your Bombshell gals!

 So I decided to play with my cool "Mi Amor" Bombshell stamps for Alison's challenge based on these film posters:


 I stamped Mi Amor onto Kraft cardstock and embossed her with clear embossing powder.
I built up a few layers of copper embossing powder on some cardstock and then stamped the rose into the soft embossing powder. I cut out the roses and added them to the edges of the card.
The background to the card was made in the same way as the roses but using a text stamp instead.
The frame of the card is a Spellbinders Square Fleur de Lis die.

I hope you enjoy my interpretation of Alison's cool theme (there were so many other ideas buzzing around in my head for this one!) and I hope you play along!

Ok so now it's time to hop as you head off to Kapree's Blog

Happy Crafting!
