Walking On Sunshine Blog Hop - Stop 3

Hi Friends~
Welcome to the
Walking on Sunshine Release
by Elisabeth Bell
If you are here from Heather's blog then you are in the right place; if not, please click -->here<-- to go to Aud's blog so that you can start at the beginning of this fantastic blog hop!!!  You really don't want to miss a stop along this hop because the stamps are definitely will need to go and purchase these!  I love them all!!!  The set can be found -->here<--, and as always Susana is so sweet and offers the whole set at a discount price!
Meet Bubbles from the Stamper's Edition #4 by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD! When I found out this would be the image I was showcasing I couldn't wait to start my project.  I have had this little wooden tote in my "things to alter" bin for quite sometime...but wanted to wait for just the right project to use it...and this definitely was the right time! 
My card has been made with MME papers...I actually had different papers picked out when I colored this cutie but after coloring her the papers didn't mesh too well and I had to go and find some betters ones.  In the top left and bottom right corners I have used my Kiwi Pearl Pen.  I absolutely love the color of this one!!!  
And a close up of Bubbles....she has been colored with my Copics, and the background has been airbrushed with my ABS.  I attempted to make a scene for her....I hope you can see the clouds in the background.  The ground got darker than I would have liked...but there's always a next time! lol! My favorite Viva Pen...the Hologram Glitter Liner was used on the bubble bottle label.
Here you can see a close up of the pin arrangement that I put together.  The pin is a Maya Road Heart Pin....Susana has some awesome pins over at her store and holy cow are they --->here<-- to go and see them all!  The bow of course was made with my Bow Easy....if it weren't for this tool my cards wouldn't have bows.....and that's no joke!
My flower collage was  made with Prima flowers......Mini Roses and Hydrangeas.  Then of course I had to add Viva Decor Hologram Glitter Liner to them for lots of sparkle.
From this view you can see the shine of the bubbles....don't they seem real?!?  I used my Viva Transparent Gloss Pen over top of the already colored bubbles. I love how these pens really do make everything 3D!
Here is the wooden gift tote with two 4 oz. jars of bubbles!  The tote has been painted with pink acrylic paint and then edged in white Distress Crackle Paint.  I then added Rock Candy Distress Crackle paint all over the rest of the tote to give it that shabby chic look!  Flowers on the tote are Zva Creative also glitzed with Viva Decor Glitter Liner!
My final picture is a close up of the Crackle Paint.  I love the texture!!!  Don't you think it looks shabby chic?

I hope you've enjoyed your stop at my blog!  Have fun with the rest of the hop....Your NEXT STOP along the Hop is the ultra-talented Ms. Suzanne Dean!
