Was this a fun card to make (even though it took a long time!)
Stamped image and coloured with prismacolour pencils. Cut first layer then used SB die to cut 2nd layer. Used a Nellie's die to cut around image.
Used distressed inks on Tim Holtz Resist kraft cs until the colour matched my main card. Added more distress inks on 2nd layer and edge of main card.
Put image back into die and sponged around the inside of frame. Distressed edges a bit just to add very subtle colour. Layered and mounted image on pop dots. Added the epoxy bubble stickers along the edge (sometimes I just love M's - this was a 79 cent bargain!) Added a very thin layer of liquid applique to marshmallows then heat set. Added stickles to steam. Would love to hear what you think.
This was a sketch challenge and I also made it for a 16 yr old's (Abby's) birthday. Abby is facing some major health challenges and through a Teapot Tuesday challenge (Destination Station), I'll be sending this to her. tfl

Oh my goodness! This is so very precious! I simply love the fun image and wonderful colors you chose! And don't think I didn't notice the bath bubbles up the side of the card! Tee hee! And the ones in the teacup! Awww...the life! Hope she doesn't get interuppted by some stinkin' cat somewhere! Ha! Love it!
Please put CFABBYAPR in keywords and then the other teapotters will see it too! Whoot!
