I used some acrylic paint I had sitting around and put it with my washing up liquid in the lid of an A5 storage box. My twist was to use two colours, I started with blue and when that was dry went on to purple. What came out looked just right for water or sky.
I have a stencil from Dreamweaver of Koi Carp which I thought would look good on my bubbles. I have used Flitter Glu and gilding flakes to colour my fish.
The corners of the bubble card are punched and then a thread has been run around the edge to frame the image. There is also a little distress ink added to the edge to bring the colour in.
I have used a small snippet of oriental paper to make a ribbon effect and added a coin (thank you Karen) with some glossy accents in the middle. The phrase on the left is stamped and embossed in gold, I don't know what it says (I just hope it's something nice!) but I like how it looks.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
The Technique Twist - Bubble painting
4 Crafty Chicks - Bling ( I hope gilding flakes qualify)
Time 4 Scrap - Chinese New Year
