Bombshell METALLIC-ART Blog Hop

 It's the end of the month. Man how March flew by. Today is Bombshell Blog Hop Day and this one is BUSTING at the seams with inspiration. If you didn't start at the beginning, hop on back to Kas' Blog where the fun has all started. If you started at the beginning and have been following along, you popped on over from Steph's Blog . Man i love her work.

The them for March's Bloghop is METAL -
Try using metals in your project : Make something on metal, metal accents, metal embellishments, or even "Metal" music...Your choice just tell us how it fits with the theme. This one made me go directly to my tenSeconds Studio stash. And I reached for one of the most beautiful Bombshell Stamps in my collection. Homeward Bound has so many options and I just love all the small stamps in this set.

I wanted to create something that really showcased the stamp and the metal, so this is what i came up with. I think it is my favorite Bombshell project I've created.

I stamped the image using Staz-On ink to the silver side of the Slate metal sheet. Then took a small tipped stylus from their basic tool set and traced over the entire image. Puffed up the clouds, textured the sails, then added alcohol ink to the entire image after I burnished it with a sanding block. The background is stamped with the compass stamp from the set and heat embossed with Zing pewter embossing powder.

Here is a close up for you to really see the detail in the image.

Isn't that just amazing what a great bombshell stamp can do with a little imagination?
