Bombshell Challenge by Ms July

This month's challenge from out guest DT Susie was to make some jewellery with our Bombshells. Why not pop over to the Bombshell blog to see what the DT have come up with.
Here are my two projects; first of all a brooch made from a paper flower and Butterfly Dreams 

 I glued some Cosmo Cricket paper to some thin card and die cut several flowers using Tim Holtz's Tattered Florals die .
I inked around the flowers with Distress Ink and after punching a whole in the centre of all the flowers I joined them together with a fancy brad!
I stamped a small butterfly from the Butterfly Dream Bombshell set on a pice of the Cosmo Cricket paper and embossed the image in gold. I added a few drops of Distress Stickles to the butterfly for a bit of extra bling; I attached the butterfly to the flower with foam pads and added a brooch pin on the back of the flower!

I also made a charm style brooch using Classic Tattoo Bombshell stamps

I created a Lucky Cat charm by stamping in Staz-On ink onto some clear shrink plastic . I coloured in the hat with a Copic Marker.

I punched a whole in the shrink plastic so I could attach it to the charm brooch then using my heat gun I then shrunk the cat.

I used various Tim Holtz Idea-ology items to create the charm brooch; I used mini gears, game spinners, long brads, Muse Tokens, jump rings and a Swivel Clasp. I added a mini bottle of glitter and some beads too for extra bling!

 I had a great time making Bombshell jewellery and my mind is still buzzing with lots of ideas of projects to make!
Why not have a go yourself; come on over to the Bombshell Blog and enter our monthly competition for a chance to win Bombshell goodies!!

Happy Crafting!

Loving your jewelry! Don'tcha just adore that Tim Holtz die? I think it's fab, and I like that you made it into a pin. Love the broach you created with all of those wonderful trinkets!

I also love the flower pin.

Katie...I wanna crawl in your creative head for just 5 minutes (okay, maybe 10). I LOVE your dangly brooch! It is super-deee-dupelicious. I'd say it's "off the chain", but clearly--it's all connected to a chain so, yeah.
