Well another month has rocketed by and here we are at the last Wednesday of January which can only mean one thing...it's BOMBSHELL BLOG HOP time!!!
Alison's theme this month:
It's time to announce the January 2013 Hump Day Hop theme! I don't know about you, but I am cold!!! That's why I decided to make this month's theme "Baby, it's Cold Outside." Make a winter themed project, use the title of the hop as a sentiment, dress your Bombshell up in warm clothes (or not!), etc.
Here in England we've just had a thaw from a week's worth of snow. People in other parts of the world who have snow regularly will laugh at how little snow brings the UK to a halt- we're really not used to a lot of snow!
So with the snow and the ice in mind I decided to go with the beautiful Koi from the Lotus Garden Bombshell set and created an icy pond.
I created a background for the Koi with Distress Inks, blending soft blue, pink and lilac together.
I coloured the Koi with Spectrum Noir pens LG1, LG2, LG3, HB1, HB2, HB3, IB1, IB2, IB3, BT2, BT3, BT4.
I cut out the Koi and stuck them onto my inked background.
I coated everything with a layer of crackle medium and immediately sprinkled on some DRy Rock Candy glitter. As this dries it crackles and shimmers because of the glitter rather like an iced up pond!
I covered some white paper with the crackle medium and sprinkled it again with glitter. When dry I used this paper to cut leaf die cuts from (I used QuicKutz Dies) I inked around the leaves edges with a pale blue Distress ink.
I mounted the Koi image onto the card and added the glittery leaves around the edges like a frame!
