Challenge 8 at Scrapbook Sisters

The theme for this week's card challenge at Scrapbook Sisters is "Tic Tock"

So I thought,tic tock,clock,time... follow my train of thought?
What a good excuse to ink up MFT's Time for the Bubbly. This is the first time I've felt brave enough to colour this image,I've played at colouring it in the past but that was before I had copics I have paper pieced the image before but to be honest,it took me so long I vowed I'd never do it again. I did resort to using mirri card for the mirror but surely that's the best way to go.


I shaped the bottles and glass and mounted them using foam pads as well as the main image then added 3 flat backed gems to the corner of the card.

I used some 3d glaze on the bubbles and a touch of stickles.I've not tired of using the cricut yet so used it to cut the large scalloped border in both pink and white, adding a strip of white ribbon to the top.
Now it's your turn,there's lots of ways to interpret the theme,just let your imagination go wild!
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x

I am now shamefully jealous of your Cricut - those big scallops are just gorgeous! Mirri card for mirror - OF COURSE it's fab! And I think I need that stamp set now.
Sigh.

Hi Julie

Fabulous card. And a real pang of guilt at this end, I used to make scallops on my Expression so often and since MS punches it really had been sidelined.
