Rebel, Rebel!!

Rebel, Rebel, you've torn your dress
Rebel, Rebel, your face is a mess,
Rebel, Rebel, how could they know?
Hot Tramp?? I love you so!!

Yes I am definitely showing my age here lol! - 1974 David Bowie woot woot! I had just met my future husband the year before and ....Oh....... I am way over David Bowie.....but seriously folks....

This new digi is called Rebel - knew this was going somewhere right?

Welcome to another Wednesday Hambo Hoedown!

This week the challenge is sewing - real, faux,.... whatever kind of sewing you can do WITH A HAMBO IMAGE! Don't forget you need to use a Hambo Image in your creation in order to meet the challenge criteria. While we LOVE your cards whichever way you make them, a Hambo Image is a must......

I also used Tuesday's colours in the Splitcoaststampers Colour Challenge - which were orange, turquoise and marigold - actually they are Stamping UP! colours but I don't have those so I used Orange Zest, Hawaiian Shores and Summer Sunrise!

I used my black spica pen to make some faux stitching around the edges and on the oval sentiment. The clouds are cut with a die that actually has the little stitching embossed right into them, so they were perfect!

I used the Moroccan Cuttlebug folder to give the HUGE "sun" some texture an a Hawaiian Shores button with "twine"! I luv's me my twine!

I coloured up this digi image with my copic markers - what would I do without them?? and then cut him out.  

I actually coloured his head and his gun twice, cut them out and popped them up to add some dimension to my card!

Rebel with a blue gun, blue gun, blue gun..... Rebel with a blue gun on.....okay so it's Devil with a blue dress.....looking forward to the weekend (already) and I am regressing a bit into the oldies lol!

If you played in last week's challenge and you emailed your photo to Monica (check out the Hambo Hoedown Blog for that info) then you will receive a free digi this week! Isn't that the coolest??!!


  1. What an awesome card and an awesome post, Bonnie! I love your dimension and texture in your card! It is so colorful and happy! And the songs.....oh my....where did the time go?

  2. You crack me up Bonnie! I didn't recognize that as a David Bowie song, but in my head I was chanting it like a cheer!! hahaha! You card is so awesome. I love how you popped his head up for some dimension.. Love it, love it, love it. I want to learn to color like you when I grow up.

  3. Hey Bonnie! we miss you!!! I just love this rebel soldier digi - how fun is this?!! great coloring on him!
