Bomb Away the Blues

It's a rainy day around these parts and what better way to bomb away the blues than with an awesome Bombshell project.   I used my Bombshell Angel stamp, this months sketch challenge from Bombshell Stamps blog.  There's so much detail to this card, I just had to make the image a bit larger than I usually do.

The background is this great two sided print from Echo Park.  I thought of my Bombshell Angel stamp the moment I saw that paper in the store.  It used to be a crisp black and white.   I took a Spellbinder Embossing folder and some SU Going Grey classic ink to it.  I shaded the paper before embossing and then did another round of shading/distressing after running it through the embossing folder.    The blue paper is a print from Creative Memories that's got a few years on it, but I'm good with "vintage" paper if you will.  I love it all. The accents are some Basic Grey ribbon and a line of brads.

Now to the main image herself.   She's my Bombshell Angel from Bombshell Stamps.  I stamped her using Memento Ink (Rich Cocoa) and then colored her using my Copic markers.  I dressed her up like a paper doll using this coordinating cutting file from Bombshell Stamps. I cut the dress using Make The Cut software and my KNK Zing.  I shaded the blue dress (and the blue used for the mats) with some SU Classic ink.

And here's the inside of the card.  I ran a piece of white cardstock into the die cut machine but only an inch or less and rolled it back out.   I added some shading around the edges and a few scraps of printed paper (also shaded).  Viola... done!

Here's the card sketch used from the Bombshell Stamps forum.
