Thinking of You Sophie - HSGDC1

This is my 1st entry for round 2 of the Hanna Stamps Guest Designer Challenge! Keep your fingers crossed that I get selected!

Isn't Bubbly Sophie the cutest? She looks so relaxed! I need to take more baths and sip champagne myself - that's the life! Sophie was colored with copics, masked off and the background was airbrushed using YG00. I wanted it a little darker in some spots, so I sponged some Kiwi Kiss around the edges. I kept the nestie on it, to create the white edge. I used some Rose Red, Pretty in Pink and Kiwi Kiss to go along with this Raspberry Tart DP (SU). I used a Martha Stewart fern punch, a prima and a pearl (Kaisercraft) to create the flower embellishment. The ribbon is Kiwi Kiss also.
Here is a close-up of Sophie. I added a little Liquid Glass to the bubbles and puddle. I switched to Gina K's 120# cardstock and {heart} the way it blends!
These are the Copics I used.

Supplies: Bubbly Sophie - Hanna Stamps, Sentiment - Amy R Friend Sentiments; Paper - Gina K 120 # CS, Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss, Pretty in Pink, Raspberry Tart DP; Ink - Memento, Copics, Kiwi Kiss; Accessories - Copic ABS, sponge, Liquid Glass (CTMH), Prima, Pearl (Kaisercraft), Fern Punch (Martha S.), Word Window Punch (SU), sewing machine, Kiwi Kiss Ribbon (SU)

Thanks for stopping by and wish me luck - I need it. There is such a talented group of ladies that made the 1st cut!

This is great Tori! I love the color combos and I can really see giving this to a girlfriend or someone who's just finished up their Christmas shopping and needs a great wind down. :)
