Bubblebella

Today's card uses an image of Bubblebella that was sent to me by my DSS last round. Isn't she cute? I finally was able to find some of the $1 clear sets on a recent trip to Michael's and I thought this swirl with a flower would make the perfect accent for Bella's bathtub. I started by coloring the image with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. Next I added a shadow with a Tombow gray marker and stamped the swirl flower in the center of the bathtub. I used Fruit Punch Stickles to make the bubbles sparkle and also on the Prima flowers, that are secured with a fancy Making Memories brad. The enjoy sentiment is from the same $1 clear set. The layout is Jen's Sketch for You To Try this week. The dp is from the BasicGrey Perhaps collection and cardstock is Bravo Burgundy and Pretty in Pink.

Just a little note to remind you about the Verve Visual card contest. The contest deadline has been extended to this Friday, September 28, and the winners will be announced on October 1. Be sure and get your entries in, because there are some fabulous prizes up for grabs, including a couple chances to win our fantastic new sets that will be debuted in October. All you have to do is make a card using either Thoughtful Phrases or Fancy Florals and leave a comment on the Verve Visual blog with a link to a photo of your card.
