What did I buy THAT for?? Bombshell Hop!

It is wednesday!! Time for another Bombshell Hotties Blog Hop!!
The theme of this weeks Hop is...
"What was I thinking?" We've all done it; made one of those purchases that just seem perfect in the middle of a store with a coupon in hand. Then, when you get home, you look at it and say, "What was I thinking?" Well, that's the challenge for this week. Pull out that purchase you made, and let's get it on a card and out of your stash. It might be ribbon, DP or an embellishment, but whatever it is, get it out and use it! And...if you're so inclined, share the story behind the purchase. Remember: One stamper's trash, is another's treasure. *giggle
I decided to use my Flower Soft on the bombshell from A Pirates Life....Why did I buy Flower Soft? Well it LOOKS cool! It IS cool! but me using it...NOT SO COOL! I have the glue...I let it "breathe"..put some in a seperate container to fluff out...It just doesnt look right to me, AND i am not really a flower girl..Stamp wise ONLY... anyone can send me some real flowers at ANY time LOL!

So in trying to be COOL I tried to use my flower soft again...it turned out okay..I wish the tacky glue was easier to use.
The rest of my bombshell was colored with colored pencils and layered onto bazzill cs and dp from K&company. The sentiment and North Star are from the same bombshell set!
Stamps Used: Pirates Life-Bombshell Stamps
paper Used: White cs-GP, pink and green Bazzill cs, K&company greenhouse dp, chocolate chip-SU
Ink Used: Versafine onyx black, chocolate chip-SU
Accessories used: colored pencils, goo be gone for blending, sponge, flower soft sweet Pea, tacky glue

THis has been such a fun challenge - I've never heard of Flower Soft before. From what I can see, you did a great job using it.

Isn't that stamp awesome? I've colored her dozens of times and keep coming back for more.

Darsana said...

Oh girl...flower soft scares the heck out of me. Your's looks great though. I love the coloring job you did and nothing like a pirates life for that flower soft outfit.

Erica said...

This card rocks! I love the touch of Flower Soft, i would never have thought of using it that way. I am the same way with glitter. I love it but me and glue don't agree. HAHA! Great job chicka! Hugs!

Gabby said...

I think you rocked the flower soft! ;)

Rebecca said...

Oooooh, I think your flowersoft is perfect for this! PS I scratch my head over how to use mine too .... but I "had" to have it, lol!

Angela Knopf said...

I'm with you. I've almost purchased it several times...but you did a FABULOUS job with it. I love the dimension it adds to her outfit. So super cute!! Work it girl!

What a great way to use this stuff up.

Shaz said...

she is so HOT!

Renee Drew said...

I, too, HAD to have some at a recent convention. Finding a way to use it involves FIRST finding where I put it! LOL It's a perfect addition and shows a soft side of her that may usually be hidden.

Jen said...

You did a great job with the flower soft. (I have no idea what that is by the way.)But you used it really well, it compliments her outfit perfectly. This is just awesome Jac!

Sara said...

I love the addition of the Flower Soft to the Pirate's bodice. It looks great.

Btw, I have a bunch of Flower Soft and haven't used it yet. :D

Miss Magoo said...

I love it! You've encouraged me to try flower soft... I've been tempted but afraid at the same time. Thanks!!

Bombshell Stamps said...

Fantastic color up and use of the flower soft! Although I'm with Nicole on not knowing what it is ;) Yeah Ms.October!!!

Alyssa said...

Love her! What a fun way to use FS - I never would have thought of it! I have that Flower Soft too and have only been able to use it a couple of times. It's a weird texture.
Great job on the coloring too ;o)
