Bubbling Up

It's Monday! And with every Monday, a new Outlines Challenge is issued. This week, the challenge is to make a Halloween/Fall project. (And because there are so many wonderful Halloween/Fall images available from Outlines that will be next week's theme as well). Each week, you will have a chance to win a $25 gift certificate from the Outlines Rubber Stamp Company. Make sure you join in on this season's fun!

This week, I chose to use "Witchy Dog" (G-1103) from Outlines. (I knew if I didn't, my Sloopy would get all witchy on me). I stamped the image onto X-Press It cardstock using Marvy black dye ink. Then using the out-of-the-box technique, I cut around the image with a circle Nestabilities die. I colored the image with Copic markers, and added a little sparkle on the bubbles using a Sakura glitter pen. I paper pierced around the circled paper, and then sponged around the edges using SeaShells Conch Shell dye. I framed the image with a Nestabilities cut black circle, in hopes that the image panel would take on the look of a bubble.

Then, I proceeded to make other "bubbles" using black and white cardstock and varies sizes of Nestabilities circle dies. I paper pierced each bubble.

I placed the "bubbles" onto a large panel of Core'dinations cardstock that had been dry embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and sanded. A strip of Bo Bunny patterned paper was also used. I paper pierced around the large card panel and framed with black cardstock.

A small bow of Baker's Twin was adhered to one of the "bubbles".

Some spectacular Halloween/Fall projects have bubbled up on the blogs of the design team. Don't miss them.
