Hello lovelies, just popping in with a quick card for one of my favourite challenge blogs Just Us Girls As soon as I saw this week’s theme I just couldn’t resist, the fabulous Sue has chosen CAS and I do like myself a bit of CAS.
I used this lovely ovalish die for my aperture I still haven’t found out who it belongs to, I really must be more careful with the packaging! The little birdie is from Spellbinders I think it’s called little chickadee. For the background, I used the bubble technique that I saw Chris Stokes using so much fun. I added Stamping Up Melon Mambo ink to a cup of water a few drops of washing up liquid and using a metal straw made lots of bubbles then swooshed (technical term) my paper gently across the bubbles let it dry and Ta-dah a bubbly background is born. I made it into a shaker just to add a touch of colour and a sticker sentiment from Mr Holtz.
Here’s a close-up for those of you who like myself suffer from bloggers’ blindness.
I’m also entering into Happy Little Stampers watercolour challenge as there was plenty of water and colour used in this card.
Do pop over to HLS and JUGS as both DT’s have some amazing cards to inspire us all.
Beautiful card Marie. Pretty colours. Love the effect you have made with the bubbles. Have a happy Sunday xx

Oh Marie this is just gorgeous. Love it’s a shaker and the bubbly technique you used – wow. I must try it. Such softness. That bird is sooooooo sweet.
Thank you so much Ina
Oh my goodness! This is is so cute. The bubble technique sounds fascinating and is really effective. I love the way the little birdie is looking up at the sentiment and I feel like it’s eyeing the sequins as seed 🤣
The colours work beautifully together and the oval aperture is just perfect
Love this card, so pretty ❤️
