Sketch and a Bubble Bath


Once again I'm posting at the last minute, but such is life lately for me. I think I need to do what this card says, but I don't have time. Sigh..... I did this for this week's sketch challenge at House Mouse and I still love sketch challenges. I used my Basic Grey "Porcelain" papers for all of the DP's and Sahara Sand for the main CS. I colored my image with Copics and tried my new Shimmerz on the bubbles. I plan to send this to a friend who hosted a huge but lovely party for mutual friends. She deserves the bubble bath, but knowing her, she doesn't have time for one either. Hope you like my cute little mousie and I'll be back tomorrow with a Memorial Day post. Have a wonderful holiday tomorrow.

Oooh la la, this is beautiful!! Very calming and elegant, loving the Shimmerz bubbles, I may have to check that out for myself, lol. Crafting and the evergrowing wishlist....

To respond to an older question, I color with watercolor pencils mostly. I'm going to ask Santa for some Copics for Christmas though, then I will be able to participate at CCC!! Yay!!

Take Care,
Stephanne

Karen, This is an adorable card. I love that sketch. The image looks fabulous in the circle. Almost like it is floating away in a big bubble. Wonderful choice of paper and embellishment also. Finally did a card with my first House Mouse stamp this weekend. Stop by my blog and check it out.
