Tomic challenge #14
time for a fab new challenge on TOMIC and this week its "Make your own background paper"
First though, i wanna share with you that i am someitmes or most times a bit dippy, i seem to get things wrong, or misinterpret things and then get it all wrong, so dippy here, when i read the dt specs for this week i just saw make your own background, so i made a triple easel that i was so pleased with, loaded long before the challenge was due. Just as well someone on the team is on top of things and they pointed out that i had made the wrong thing for our challenge this week. So i scuttled around like a headless chicken and came up with this instead: i will share the card "faux par" later in the week.
For my card on the Tomic challenge this week i made my background paper using a stamp that has bubbles on it, made by a local company. I stamped the bubbles with top boss, on white cardstock, embossed with an embossing powder that has a light shimmer to it, no name left on the bottle its really old. I then used Adirondack die ink pad "name this color" to resist the embossed bubbles and voila! i love my bubbly background paper.
colored my image "swimming Tilda" with copics, and found these bubbles that i bought at Hobby lobby last year and made a shaker around my image with clear micro beads in it. I added pink dew drops around the frame of my shaker, a pearly flourish down the side of my card and some fluffy wool that to me resembled seaweed. I added a few glass garlands into the mix of flowers and left the inside of my card pretty clean and simple, but you can really see the nice bubbly paper.
