Just for me... Create With TLC card

I love working on the design teams that I am currently on - I wouldn't be doing it if I didn't... But I have to admit that occasionally I love working on something "just for me". You know what I mean... when you see a stamp and it is just singing to you, so loud and clear! Well, recently I discovered a site "Create With TLC" and there were sooooo many of her stamps doing just that! Singing to me!!

Paulette is amazingly generous with freebies on her sight and her ability to match her word art sayings and designs with her vintage images is pure talent. I found this adorable bubble image over there and couldn't wait to get a chance to work on a card with it.

I kept the vintage feel as well as keeping it fairly simple in design so that the image would remain center focus. I used a lot of sepia ink to tone all my colors down and in keeping with the vintage feel. The bubbles were so much fun to color (using my Copics of course). I used very light tones of turquoise, violet and yellow to give them the translucent sheen look. I added touches with my glitter pen, then covered them all with glossy accents. The lace has been inked to age it and the cheese cloth torn apart to give just a hint of ragged edges behind the image.

I hope you stop over to Create with TLC and check out all Paulette is doing over there. You won't be disappointed.
