I Brake for Bubbles and a Baby.

Hello IBFS fans !!!

It's Crystal here , I hope you are all doing well.  I have a baby shower this Saturday and I am going to share my card with you today ( shhh don't tell the new mom to be ). I am going to share a bit of my process on this card . I had a 4.5 hour road trip one way last Sunday , I am not good at sitting doing nothing so I color in the car , yes you heard me right I color  , I stamp out several images and have a 12x12 tote with my coloring needs and I have a lap desk and a 12/12 clip board , for this trip I took my prisma colored pencils and blending stumps and baby oil and pencil sharpener .
The image I am using is super sweet and called Baby and Bubbles and can be found in I Brake for Stamps on-line store

here is a look at my car set up  , its not so fancy but it works for me , oh ...for this to work you must be a passenger and not driving the car , just wanted to make that clear   the green sponge has baby oil on it in a sealable container I poke my paper stump onto the sponge and im ready to blend my colored pencils and no fumes and the oil doesn't spill because its in the sponge.

here is my card , I added diamond stickles to the bubbles , the script word die is from Avery Elle , the bow is a lil Inkers die
for the inside of my card I used my Silhouette and a gel pen and had my silhouette write the inside sentiment , the gel pens I am loving to use in my silhouette these days are from Ikea .

I hope this has inspired you to take your colored pencil on your next road trip and before you know it you will be to your destination with many newly colored images ready to make into cards .
Thanks so much for stopping by.
For this image and so many more visit the IBFS store  .
