Blowing Bubbles

Good Day friends!  This week's challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar is a Shaker Card OR Recipe challenge (3 Flowers, 2 Buttons & 1 Ribbon).  Our sponsor this week is Denise from Whimsy Stamps and she has kindly provided some digital images for us to play with.  Thank you Denise.

The sweet image Maya Blowing Bubbles is a digital image by the very talented artist Crissy Armstrong and can be purchased at Whimsy Stamps.   I had a lot of fun colouring Maya with my Copics and found it challenging working and blending the colours for her skin but I am happy with the results.  I drew inspiration from Crissy's video tutorial and from Zoe's card.

I'm entering the card into the following challenges:
Thank you for taking the time to visit and I look forward to seeing your creations.  Make sure to take a look at the DT's inspiring creations for more inspiration.

Hugs,
Maria
