July Bombshell Stamps Blog Hop

It's time for the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop in July!  

This month, Alison our Challenge Captain, has picked the theme "Paint the Town" and we can use paints and/or sprays and our Bombshell Stamps to create a project for the hop.  Fun right?!  So, at first I was going to use paint, but then I saw my neglected Glimmer Mists and decided I would use them instead.

For the background, I used a piece of 6x6 sand dollar paper from Authentique's Fresh Collection.  I misted it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Sand and Riptide. 

 For the shells, I cut out a 6x6 shell stencil from the Silhouette Online Store with my Cameo.  I used a piece of paper from the Fresh Collection for the background and first misted the RipTide Glimmer Mist and dried it a little with my heat tool. Then I misted SeaGlass Glimmer Mist on top.  I removed the stencil and dried it again.  Then I fussy cut out the shells.

The mermaid is from Bombshell Stamps "Mermaid Anchor" stamp set.  I paper pieced the anchor and the fins from papers in the Fresh Collection pad.  I also painted some clear glitter glue onto the fins.  The top of the mermaid was colored with Spectrum Noir markers and then pieced with the bottom of the mermaid.  The Hold Fast banner is from the "Ahoy Sailor" stamp set (also by Bombshell Stamps) and was stamped onto a piece of grey paper.

I rarely ever use my Glimmer Mists but after this project I'm thinking I need to use them more!  Okay, so now that you know one of mine, what is one of the most neglected items in your crafty stash?  I would love to know!

  2. This is so pretty! I love that you used Glimmer Mists, and want to use them more now. I tend to neglect my stickers. I have tons of them, but I need to really try to use them some more. Again, beautiful project!
