Welcome Back Everyone!

I wanted to share with you a card that I created recently using a sketch designed by Kathi at Bombshell Stamps. You can see all of her great sketches compiled thus far right here! Kathi is always creating fresh new sketches that you can play along with in the Bombshell Forum as well! As part of the challenge you have a chance to win something! (And really, who doesn't love free stuff?!)
This card features the Bombshell Stamps Ahoy There set, Kathi's December 2011 Sketch and Spare Parts' teal brads. (I found mine at Hobby Lobby.)



I love the detailed sparkly brad bits!!

Anyways, I hope you love this sketch as much as I do. (Check out the sketch challenge in the forum! Its always fun to see what everyone comes up with!)
Cheers!

Woman of Power

Image
Good Morning All!
Over this last weekend I purchased some great digital images to change things up. I'm not really a digital images kind of person, but lately I've been getting more into them. One of my favorite digital images right now is Luna, Woman of Power from Smeared Ink.
I used this color palette for my inspiration.
I also used liquid applique on the lips and added the tattoo on the arm using Bombshell Stamps' Ahoy Sailor small nautical star thingy. It was the perfect size for her tattoo.
What do you think? I love this great image. I'm sure I'll use it in the future. I wanted to keep this card pretty clean and simple until I could find the perfect sentiment to go with it.

What do you think?

Cheers,

In My Studio

Hello Bloggerland!
I hope today is treating you well. Here's a little update on what's happening in my studio!
I'm designing with Bombshell Stamps for a client and slowly piecing together some lovely cards for her Day Spa in Seattle.
This greeting is far from done, but it's coming together nicely. I still have quite a few design elements to add onto it.

What do you think of this so far?
Cheers,

BSS Sketch Challenge May

Hello Bloggerland and thanks for joining me again today! This month's Bombshell Sketch challenge (pictured below) just screamed scrapbook layout to me.

First it started out like so:


But it soon morphed into its finished product.

I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. What do you think?

Cheers,
Xo, Rachael

Stuff I Love: Crows

Image
I love crows and ravens. They're highly intelligent and beautiful, even if they do get a little noisy at nesting time. If you are interested in the difference between crows and ravens, check out this site.  If you're interested in crows and their intellect, you will enjoy this documentary that was done in Seattle recently. A Murder of Crows.


Cheers! Xo, Rachael

CPS Sketch Challenge #263

Image
Playing along with CPS Sketch Challenge again. This week I decided to use mica flakes paired with teal. I love the paneling idea in this sketch!

Also got to use a butterfly stamp which had never touched ink before! ;)
Cheers,
Xo, Rachael
