CBH Dec 28 - Bubbles -


This week over on Created By Hand and Quietfire Design the theme is Out with the Old" or "Bubbles". Yup you guessed it I chose bubbles.

I put a Peel Offs fish (ecraftdesigns.com) onto some Sookwang double sided tape (Be Creative tape) and glittered it with Ritz mWarm Highlights, then colored it with Sakura Gel Pens and moved it around with my water brush. When dry, cut around the elements and adhered them to my background. The background was colored direct to paper with Distress stamp pads, Broken China, Stormy Sky and a touch of Dusty Concord, then misted with water and dried. The edges where touched with a Krylon silver leafing pen. This was mounted to a dark purple cardstock. Words written with a micron pen.
"Are bubbles synonymous with toil and trouble?"

What a cool idea to use the peel off this way! I especially love how you blended the colors in the grass. Bet this is extra fabulous in real life. Hope you had a nice Christmas, Yogi!
