Forever Blowing Bubbles!!

I have discovered that if I stop using the stamps off the top layer of my stamp box and dig a little deeper then there are actually brand new stamps in there which are beautiful and have never been used ... until now!! 

I bought this Elzybells image when they were closing down, I just wish I had got lots more than I did as they stamp beautifully!! (If anyone wants to sell any of theirs please do let me know!!) So I inked up these cutesy bears, did a bit of colouring, a bit of inking and a bit of glossying!! 


I had a play with the grass again and first coloured it with copics, then inked over it with a sponge and dew drop, I love this effect and keep on using it since I tried it on my Jack card a couple of weeks back. 
The papers are Cosmo Cricket, which again have sat in a box unused (How naughty am I!) the sentiment is Lili of the valley and the punch is an EK Success one!
