What a Bombshell :P

Ooer - I think this is the first time I've participated in a blog hop... This one is hosted by Bombshell Stamps in conjunction with Gauche Alchemy! WHOO! WHOO! WHOO!
Thanks to the lovely Nicole having sent me some Bombshell images not long ago, (thank you, thank you, thank you Nicole!) I was able to finally have a play with these little beauties.

The theme for the hop is 'Some like it hot, hot, hot!' I used the Gauche Alchemy kit Scarlet Fever to create the sparkly tutu and Purple People Eater to create the flower for her hair piece.whoopidooings - Carmen wing - Bombshell Stamp beautyOf course she is a smokin' hot Alice fan - a burlesque laydee of taste fo sho! I love this image so much and am saving her for a journal page when I finally do one I like.

I think I'm safe sharing this page too - it's the latest one I created for the Rock In Peace circle journal I'm in. I'm almost certain the recipient doesn't read my blog so this wont spoil the surprise.I finally had a proper play with my huge collection of Copics too - I have 8! I know! You are stunned at the vast size of my collection aren't you? I can tell. Also the sparkly Spica pens that I won not long ago - I believe they are from the Copic family. (I may be wrong) I SO would not have bought them had I seen them in a shop but let me tell you this; I will be hunting them down when I've used these up!  I don't know if you can tell from my pictures but Burlesque Alice laydee's hair is sparkly as is Skellie's tux and his girlfriends hair. It might not show up so well in the pictures but it has a lovely shimmer.

If you'd like to play along in this blog hop these are the rest of the motley crew:
Gauche Alchemy
Merdrey Chew
Carmen ~ You be here. Arrr!

If you play along you have two chances to win. Now you're paying attention eh? Gauche Alchemy will pick a random commenter from the comments on the Bombshell post on their blog. The winner will receive a triple colour kit containing: Banana Hammock, Lady Marmalade and Scarlet Fever. and the Bombshell gals will pick a monthly winner from all the comments received on the blog hop posts.

So, if anything, your generosity in sharing the images with me Nicole has only made me even worse. I need some Bombshells of my own. In particular the sets containing these two images as they were so much fun to play with.

Thank you as always for stopping by :)

If you are wondering where the flip my WOYWW is and why I'm rambling about nudies (as Ruby calls them) I'll be back later - am going to try and schedule this to post at 5am as I *think* that is when Wednesday starts in America. I'm most likely horribly wrong so in fact although it's Wednesday now as you read this it's still Tuesday in my physical reality and as I don't have a Tardis I couldn't take a piccy of my Wednesday desk for this post... ya get me? Come back and see me later, Pwease?
