Spoil Yourself

Another cute little Penny Black image!  I colored with my copics.  Can I just tell you, these pens are so worth the money, especially if you artsy at all.   Long before I stamped and scrapbooked, I drew and I painted.  I have had a love affair with art since I was a kid.  Markers always disappointed me though, I hated the streaking and how hard it was to blend or layer colors.  Well copics are so perfect for those things.  They are fairly easy to use once you practice a bit.  They are pricey but so worth the money to me.   Anyhow on to the rest of the card:  PTI paper in Aqua mist, select white, and pink patterns.  Berry Sorbet swiss dot bow.  Love those swiss dots.  Hope you like it!
Switching subjects:  I am sitting here watching the Bachelor.  Oh I am so embarrassed that I got sucked into this drama.   I sit her with my mouth open for the most part as these women fight to win a "prize".  Its no wonder 99% (yes I know about Ryan and Trista) of these match ups fail!  This stuff is just crazy!   Although I would have happily gone to the private concert by Robin Thicke, LOL

Darling card! I love how you used the slick paint drops on some of the soap bubbles! I just did a cow in a tub card yesterday and may go back and add some of that to my bubbles.
