Greetings friends. Today I want to share with you my favorite item from the January release and use it for two very different cards. Does it surprise anyone that I chose a new background? I really love the new Bubbles Cover a Card.
For the first card, I watercolored my bubbles with soft pastel colors so that it would work well for a spring/Easter card. I must admit, that I almost picked the Follow the Bunny clear set as my favorite. He is just so cute includes such sweet sentiments.
I used Copic markers to color the bunny and then fussy cut the image to layer onto the card. The oval die is part of the new Butterfly and Scalloped Frame die set.
For the second card, I changed the color scheme to reds, pinks and greys for a more Valentine look. I chose Valentine colors since the holiday is coming up, but I designed a card that could be used year-round. After all, don't we all need a hug from time to time?
To color the sweet dogs, I stamped them in black Versafine ink and then painted them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a waterbrush. A tip for coloring animals (even humans) is to leave the center of the face a lighter color than the rest of the object.
To finish the card, I paired the dogs with some of the new hearts and layered everything onto my favorite new background.
What about you? How would you use the Bubbles background?

Your use of the bubble background is very nice. I gravitate to round shapes and this design, as well as the color combinations you used is very eye-catching.
