Lollipop Crafts Sponsor Spotlight #76

Happy Wednesday everyone!!

Hope you all are doing well today.  Yes, I have two posts today!  This one is for Lollipop Crafts Sponsor spotlight on Kitty Bee Designs.  For my Flutterby Wednesday post please scroll down.  :)

This week we have a new sponsor, Kitty Bee Designs.  Here is a little info on Kitty Bee and her designs:

"Kitty Bee Designs" is proud to render its original artwork of whimsically cute characters with seasonal themes, that you can't help but fall in love with. Being born and raised in the most beautiful place in the world, Hawaii has so much to offer. Being known as the 'melting pot of the Pacific', Hawaii is a proud host of the many cultures and traditions all in one place. Kitty Bee Designs is slowly introducing our island favorites to the national main stream, sharing a little bit of Hawaii. An artist at heart, and a familiar fixture at local craft fairs, there is never a slow moment in the studio. With a wonderful family with three teens and three kitties, there is never a dull moment."
Make sure to hop on over to the Lollipop Crafts blog today to see what the rest of the A-Team created using images from Kitty Bee Designs.  There are so many KAWAII images it was really hard to choose just one for me, so I had to choose a few which I bought.  (Always willing to support our small businesses.  Click HERE to go to my Easter post to see one of the other images I bought)  I used the adorable Bath Time Pup digi for my card today.  When I purchased this image I was thinking it would be perfect for a baby card.  I have a quite a few co-workers who are preggers and I know that I will need to stock up on these kinds of cards to either use or distribute to those who might not have time to run next door to buy one.

After printing him out on Neenah white cs I used a circle Spellbinder to cut him out.  Now normally I would keep the die in place and use some distress ink to frame him out giving the image a nice white border, but this time I decided to try something I learned at my Basic Copic class a few years ago.  (Always nice to try new/old things.)  After coloring up the parts I wanted colored I used my 0 marker and went around the edges trying to saturate it enough so that when I did put color down it would give a fading effect.  I went back in with BG000 and from nearest to the image I started flicking outward.  It might not look like it, but it does look like it's fading IRL.  (lol)  Chose a couple of my favorite boy themed papers and kept the layout pretty simple.  The sentiment is an AmyR one.  Lastly to give the suds a more real effect I used baby blue stickles and on the bubble (circles) I used diamond glaze.  O!  And I also diamond glazed his nose. hehehe.

Well that's all I got today.  Plenty right?  lol!  Have you entered your cards in to this week's challenge?  If not, you still have time.  Go here to upload your card or project and remember to follow the challenge details and upload a direct link to your post else you won't be considered for this week's prize or our top 3.  Mahalo for stopping by today for two posts!  Hope you all have a lovely Wednesday!
