Ruby Bubble Trouble

I am joining you today with my very first creation for the I ❤️Promarkers Design Team. When I first started colouring several years ago and was on one design team I used to set myself my own wee challenge each week or so and head over to Paper Playful to find challenges that would fit in with my 'enter 5 challenges' plan.  I would choose 5 challenges,  a colour challenge,  a Promarker challenge,  a sentiment challenge, an embellishment challenge and one other then I would make a card that would fit the 5 challenges.  Always a bit challenging but great fun and it was a super way to focus in the early days when the craft world felt like a very big place and rather daunting at times :).  I never dreamed in those days I would be on this awesome team and feel very privileged to be here now.

The challenge this fortnight at I ❤️Promarkers is
 'One For The Girls'
and the sponsor for this challenge is Bugaboo Stamps with $12 gift code for the Store 

For my design creation I have used the Bugaboo image Ruby Bubble Trouble after all, which girl does not like a lovely bubble bath to ease the aches and pains of the day and a glass of wine (or in my case coffee) to make the whole experience one of total delight :)

I have coloured the image with Promarkers (now that was a bit daunting as it is ages since I only used Promarkers on an image lol) and used Pan Pastels for the background.  The image layer was then cut and mounted on black.  Next I created the sentiment layer and lacy border using a Tattered Lace die and the HB2U stamp from Creative Stampers magazine.  I then coloured the sentiment circle and lacy border with the same Promarker used for Ruby's towel.  Next I coloured a bit of card with, you guessed it, the same pink Promarker and then embossed this using Crafter's Companion snake skin die as it at the effect of random bubbles lol.  Finally I mounted all the layers onto my card blank which I covered with a gelli print background I made a while ago and also looks a bit like bubbles.

I am entering this card in the following challenges : -
