2sketches4you challenge

Hi there, over at 2sketches4you Laura has drawn this sketch for her challenge this week. I thought long and hard about this card as I wanted to use some of my new goodies that I bought with Mum on Monday in Belfast. So this is my finished result. I inked up some pink/brown paper that I bought recently at The Papermill (they have some fab colours at the mo) as my base card, next I "bubbled" some pink card using my new texture tiny bubbles plate for my cuttlebug. Stamped onto the pink card with pink embossing powder the text "It's your day ... spoil yourself Silly!" which was in my new Penny Black Bubbly stamps, put some ribbon around the card and stuck on some pearly flower sequins. For the image itself I used my new cat in the bath stamp that was in the Penny Black stamps that I bought, painted the bath with cosmic shimmer, colour the images in using whisper water coloured pens and for the bubbles I used the clear Sakura stardust pen. Did you notice the cat is drinking pink champagne? Very posh! Just to add a little more dimension to the image I decoupaged the little mouse and had him bathing in grapes as something a bit different. Inked the edges of the whole image using chalk cat eyes. I am really really happy with the finished card and as it's my Great Aunts birthday soon, I will be giving her this card and I know she will just love it :-)
