Green Hot Rod Holiday

This post is also featured on the Bombshell Stamps Blog today.

Happy Holidays from one roaring mean hot rod. Speed Shop is my newest Bombshell Stamp set and I couldn't wait to break it in.   This big ole hunk of a hot rod winked at me and just begged to be stamped and colored.    I had good intentions of using him in a sketch, incorporating him with other accents, and just dressing him to the nines.   But that's not what he apparently wanted.  He wanted the stage to myself.   So somehow, I ended up using a Bombshell stamp in a clean and simple card... and I love it.

I carefully ran the colored image through the printed to add a greeting, added some brads and then a bit of layering.  The layers are pop dotted up from the page.   And if you look closely, there's a bit of shimmer on this beast's paint job... just the trim work.
