Bombshell Blog Hop- November!

Hello everyone!
Hard to believe another month is almost at it's end and it's so close to Christmas now!
With the end of the month comes the Bombshell Hump Day Blog Hop and here is Alison with this month's theme for your inspiration!

This month's theme is Water World. So I want you to incorporate water or water loving elements into your projects this month! There are so many sets that you can use for this such as Homeward Bound, A Pirate's Life, Mermaid Treasure, Mermaid Anchor, Ahoy Sailor, Lotus Garden, Koi Tattoo and our Hawaiian themed stamps.

I'd love to be able to paint with watercolours so this is my version of it!






I stamped Koi Tattoo onto some Ranger Water Color cardstock with Versamark ink and embossed it with Wow! Platinum embossing powder which has a beautiful silky look with a hint of gold to the deep silver.
I took a thick paint brush and covered the watercolour card with water so it sat on the surface and quickly applied splodges of Tim Holtz Distress Stains, I used Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, Picked Raspberry, Fired Brick and Seedless Preserve. 
I splodged the Distress Stains onto the wet cardstock and allowed them to wick out and go where they wanted- I liked the way they mixed and flowed.
When I was happy with the look of the Koi I used some kitchen roll to soak up the excess water then left the piece to dry.

It was a bit scary leaving things to chance but it was also fun to see the colours develop!

Now hop to the next Bombshell to see her cool project!
Leave some love on each blog and you will increase your chance to win your own Bombshell Stamps- or why not play along and show us your Water World inspired Bombshell project?
