Magic Bubble Bath

Wowser - October already ...When did that happen??
I know its the month of Witches and Hauntings and anything BOO....
but I could not resist creating something ultra cute
I used the wonderful image
Magic Bubble Bath
You can find her in The Paper Shelter Shop here
Is'nt  she just adorable

I dusted around the edge using spun sugar Distress Ink
I coloured using Graph'It Markers
With a sprinkling of Glamour Dust on her wings.
I used her along side the Paper Pack
Country Dream 
also from The Paper Shelter store - you can find that here.
(The only paper used not from the pack was the Blue/White checked which I paper pierced the bath and made some bows from)
The Background paper, flowers, buttons and hearts are all from the pack.

I fussy cut some buttons, hearts and flowers out of the two Embellishment sheets, which really are swit swoo...
Inside the flowers I used a potion of Glossy accents and Glamout dust they really sparkle in real life.
The bubbles have all been glossy accented 
Finished off with a few pearls on center of bows and some pink and blue liquid pearls dotted about
Don' forget The paper Shelter has a brand new challenge starting today which is Pearls, pop across and join in the fun (you wont see my card over there as its my turn next week)
See the fabulous prizes you could win!!
