I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles

It's the fabulous Magda's turn to host the Stampotique challenge this week, and she has chosen circles. Here's what she has to say.
 I like using shapes in my projects especially circles. They can give interesting effects on projects depends in what way they are used. I would love to see circles on your creations. How you will use them, depends on your imagination. 

Here's my postcard.

I started with 3 colours of DecoArt Americana Multi Surface Satin paint.
Carefully applied :-)
Then a second coat, and stamping with Splattered Mug and Splatter Circle.
I credit card swiped quinacronine gold and magenta onto some card and stamped Screaming Bunny, and paper pieced his tongue and ears.
His bubbles have been stuck one, by one, by one, by oh dropped that one, by one, by blob of glue in hair, by one, by time for chocolate....
Unleash Yourself has been stamped, and this time I was careful with the painting :-)
Neil's asked why I've 'started sticking everything in books' Really simple, everything I make except for the odd card gets thrown into a big box in the corner. Once a year (or whenever I get sick of it) the big box in the corner gets thrown into the big bin outside. Bit of a waste, and lets face it crafting is not cheap! So now although things wont get 'used' at least it will be kept and not just get bashed about and then binned!
I hope you get chance to join in with our challenge this week, remember there are 2 $30 gift certificates up for grabs for April's lucky winners.
I'm entering this into the Craft Stamper colour challenge, Mixed Media World's use bright colours, and Pan Pastels anything goes.
 Hope you like it, and thanks very much for looking x
