Just Relaxin' ~ ATCs With Attitude Challenge 46
Sorry I haven't been around much this week. I have been really sick and the antibiotics are just beginning to kick in. Hopefully I'll be back up to speed soon. We have a new theme at ATCs With Attitude for this fortnight. The theme is Relax which sounds good to me! Somehow being sick isn't relaxing although you aren't doing anything. I was able to play with a fun image from QKR Stampede who produces some of my favourite characters ever. This sweet little elephant digi is called Making Bubbles so I went with that. I coloured Bubbles with Prismacolor pencils and used a Spellbinders scalloped oval die to cut out the image in a bubbly shape. Glossy Accents was added to the bubbles in the water and Dew Drops were added to the ones in the air. Broken China Distress Ink was applied around the scalloped edge.
The background was cut from navy blue cardstock and embossed using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The raised bubbles were highlighted with Patina Gilder's paste applied with my finger. The sentiment was computer generated, cut out, and matted with turquoise cardstock. The words were then popped up on foam tape for added dimension.
Bubbles and I thank you for popping by today. He's going to continue to play in the water but I will begin catching up with blogs and DT comments. In the meantime, be sure to check out the ATCs With Attitude blog to see the rest of the "relaxing" ATCs created by our DT. We'd love it if you played along.
Life is good; so is art.
