July Bombshell Blog Hop!

Hello!  Today you should have hopped here from the abundantly awesome Alison’s blog.  If not, you can go back to the beginning at the Bombshell Blog to start this super cool hop!  Our theme this month was “Iconic”.  What’s that mean?  Well, Alison instructed us to focus on our fabulous little Bombshell stamps.  You know, the tiny shapes and “icons” that come with the stamp sets.Smile

Well, I used a bunch of those little stamps!  I used stamps from Retro Cowgirls, Butterfly Queen, Bombshell Angel, Homeward Bound, Hula Girl, Vintage Raceway, and Lotus Garden.  That’s a lot of Bombshell Stamps!

So, what did I make?  I decorated a little round box…

I stamped the images on to tissue paper…

Then I colored them, or colored around them…

Then I Mod Podged them on to the box I had painted…

But wait!  There’s more!  I got overly ambitious and decided to play along with Ms. July’s Challenge to make a piece of jewelry with one of my stamps, so I made this…

Wow. I love the jewelry and the box. It's purple, which makes it perfect. The icons make it perfecter, which is now a word.
