Walkin' on Sunshine!!!

Helloooo out there in stamping land!! Woo hoo, it's finally here, the day you have been not-so-patiently waiting for all week!! The latest and most gorgeous addition to Susana's amazing collection of EXCLUSIVE images, Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Sampler #4 Collection!! To showcase all the GORGEOUS images, we are kickin' off the release with a fabulous inspiration-filled BLOG HOP! So WELCOME from Marti's blog!

Today I have the honor of presenting you with Bubbles. I am SO in love with her!! Look at that darling little face. What a cutie pie!

I am joining in over at PaperPlay Challenges for the first time this week! Their challenge ('10 Week 17) is PRETTY PASTELS. Well, here you go! Also, ANOTHER new one, SophistiCat Challenges this week is a card for a child (#30). Well, perfect. :) Thanks ladies! I am excited to find some fun new challenge sites!

Card details for today. I stamped Bubbles in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on PTI white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. I pulled the colors from this beautiful Basic Grey paper (Wisteria). Accents and highlighting on my little one with the Ranger Inkssentials White Gel Pen.

I added some flowers too, a white wild rose from Petaloo at the top, and some standard Primas down near my sentiment. I colored the center of the wild rose with Copics to coordinate with my papers and add more pop. I used the VIVA DECOR Pearl Pen in Dark Brown for the centers of the small flowers. Have you SEEN this amazingly awesome new product yet??? I love that it dries just as it goes on, meaning you can add pearls in any color, to anywhere with just a squeeze!! Susana is carrying a huge range of their pens, from the glitter to gloss, pearl to glass and she has the HOLOGRAPHIC GLITTER LINER PENS in stock now and ready to ship!! These are a fabulous tool, I love mine, I need more. heehee. Suzanne Dean and Pezadoodle have videos on how these babies work.

Last detail and then I'll send you on the rest of the hop. The picture shows it a bit, but the bubbles turned out SO fun on this! I painted over them using Smooch Illuminate Pearlized Top Coat ink to give some great sparkle. This is a GREAT product, it gives a clear-finish dazzle to anything you add it to, without changing the color (other than to add the iridescent sparkle). It comes with its own little applicator right in the bottle, no searching for a paint brush!! Yayyyy! Once the Smooch was dry I covered the bubbles with a coat of Mono Aqua glue. This is a gem of a product, in my book, it's a crystal clear glue that dries shiny, and as applied. So I put a generous amount on the top of my bubbles and it dried shiny and slightly raised. Perfect! Those bubbles could pop right off the page!

Your next stop is Carolyn!! Enjoy the hop everyone! When you're all through, head over to the SCACD store to get your new Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Sampler #4 stamps!
