Bombshell "Hot Hot Hot" Hop!


It's that time-- last Wednesday in August, which is the Bombshell Blog Hop! The theme is Hot Hot Hot, and I have used my delicious Bombshell Flames on this decorated hard-cover notebook.

It's done with dye inks in red and yellow. First I swiped the yellow and red dye pads in a line next to each other on a non-stick craft sheet. Two spritzes with water and a roll with a brayer to mix the two patches to make some orange in the middle, and I'm ready to stamp.

I stamped the flames all over a sheet of white card (Stampin' Up), re-inking the sheet as I went. All the flames went in the same direction. When I was done, I brayered more ink directly over my previous stamping. It intensified the stamped areas and coloured the rest of the paper.

I then wrapped the paper around the book and stamped the spine edge in black with the same flame and inked the word "Hot" once, stamped it above the fire repeatedly upward until the ink ran out.

Next time I may try changing the direction of the flames slightly as I can see that any overlap is just going to add interest.

There's lots of others involved in the hop this month: Drop by and give them some love! And remember, there's always a great prize package to be won, and every comment you leave counts as an entry!!
