Challenge #27

Good morning all challenge #27 is starting over Through the purple haze 
This week our theme is "Love is in the air" and we are sponsored by the lovely 
We got a choice of digis to choose from and I chose the adorable Bubble bath Sassy

And this is what I made

The image was coloured with Promarkers
Skin : Pastel pink
Hair: Cinnamon 
Eyes: Cyan, sky blue
Bath: Cool grey 5,4,3,2,1 and blender pen
Bubbles: Cool Grey 3,2 and blender pen

The card is a purple colour side step card and the background card is white with purple  flowers both from Payper Box, the layer of card the digi is sitting on is white pearlesant paper with has been put through a bubble embossing folder which had been lightly inked with purple ink, then clear embossing powder was added and heated to give a slightly wet like effect

I highlighted the bubbles by using a versamark pen and heat embossing with clear embossing powder

The card was finished with a computer generated sentiment, a small handmade bouquet of flowers,
a Purple Ribbon and some diamantes from my stash
