Bombshell Hump Day HOP!!!

It's Bombshells HUMP day Blog hop for January 2012!!
Here is our Blog Hop Captain *salutes* Alison with your challenge...
"Greetings and Happy 2012! It's time to find out what the January Hump Day Hop will be! And, since it's a new year, I figured, what better challenge than to actually "Try Something New?" Make anything you want, as long as there is something "new" for you in it. Never made jewelry before? Give it a go! Never attempted a tri-fold card? Now is the perfect time! Perhaps you've never used pink with your Bombshells....why not experiment? Wow us with your experimentation! "

 Here's my project:

I created a 7x5" canvas representing the Story of America!
The challenge I set myself was to use stamped Bombshell images and NOT COLOUR them!!!! *gasps*
The second challenge I set myself (I was in an experimental frame of mind!) was to use clear shrink plastic for the first time:
I stamped Anchor Mermaid onto the shrink plastic and created a little hanging charm for my canvas!
I hope you like my take on Alison's Challenge!

Now here's the BLOG Roll so why not hop along to the next blog and see what Kathi has come up with!! Remember to play along via our BOMBSHELL BLOG for the chance to win lovely Bombshell goodies!!!

You are a brave, brave woman. I can't imagine the restraint it took NOT to color these! I applaud you! This turned out really amazingly. It has such a warm, worn feel to it!

I love this piece of art. Sometimes it's nice to leave images uncolored to let the paper shine through.
