Guns, Glue, Glitter and Glory

Happy Monday everyone! :D

There's a brand new challenge waiting for you on the Gauche Alchemy blog: Create something fabulous using this ad from Vintage Scans as inspiration:
Oh my, this doll is driving fast and packin' heat! Here's what I made (click any pictures for larger view):

My original thought was to cut a piece of cardboard from a box but when I cut the side off, it formed this three sided billboard-y thing so I just went with it. :D Here's the left side:

I decided to keep the color scheme from the ad so it's entirely black and white. I gave my new Bombshell stamps a whirl (I stamped the pin-up onto a piece of foreign newspaper from the Wholey Sheets kit) and used a menu from my favorite sushi joint and a measuring tape from IKEA. :D Close up of the middle section:

I used a TON from Gauche Alchemy's Black Out Mixed Media Color Kit and Wedding Night Mixed Media Color Kit. The right side:

Don't forget to visit GA to drool over what the DT made and to link up your creations! P.S.-The winner of this challenge will get Gauche Alchemy's Wholey Sheets kit and believe me, you want to win this kit - it is AWESOME! AND it looks like Toot made it on Yvonne's project so go check out the challenge HERE. Thanks Yvonne, you are sooooooo awesome!

Have fun everyone! :D

  4. Do you know how good this is? I will tell you. I have been scrubbing my kitchen today which includes my oven, the oven that has never been scrubbed (what? I thought self-cleaning meant just that!) I am now aching my back is actually protesting so loudly that the neighbours have complained about the noise. But still, I crawled to my keyboard after seeing this to type a response and tell you how maaaaaaaahvellous it is dahlink! THAT'S how good it is :P

  13. OHHH I am in love... just wish I could reach through my screen and fiddle. I'm super impressed by all the bits and bobs you've used, as I'm a fairly safe and conventional (read BORING) scrapper.
    The Bombshell image is FAB and you showcased it beautifully.
