Birthday Bubbles Card

Over the Christmas period, I noticed on Instagram that there were several posts where people were sharing photos of bubbles they had made using various techniques.

I'm still under the weather and didn't want to do anything too technical, but decided to paint my own bubbles.

I drew round a couple of objects, drawing two sizes of circles, some overlapping others and also drawing some off the edge of the water colour card.

I used "Cosmic Shimmer Iridescent Shimmering Water Colour Paints" to colour my bubbles, using a white Posca Pen for highlights and a 2B pencil too.

I stamped the "Birthday" sentiment using a stamp from the Hobby Art "Greetings for friends - CS158D" stamp set, stamping in Versafine Clair "Medieval Blue" ink.

On the computer, I typed the word "Bubbles", printing it in a similar blue to the stamped sentiment.  I then die cut the sentiment and stuck it below the "Birthday" word.

Finally, I mounted the water colour card on to a piece of dark blue card and then on to a white 6x6" card blank.
