Self-Made Speech Bubbles

Hello Crafty World!!!
I am been having a fabulous time creating. One of them has been with my Brother Scan n Cut. I recently used the canvas free online software to create some designs. One of them was Speech Bubbles. You can see the Vee-dio on my YouTube Channel.

After filming, I cut out some images and created some cards. I used all but one of the bubbles. I can still use it on a colored or printed card as it is the white base layer.

Out of them all this one was my favorite and was the one with the incomplete cut. I disguised it with the Heartfelt flowers that were cut in white and inked with distress inks and shimmered with some of the Tattered Angels Shimmer Water Color paint. 

I also used it to paint some of the embossed flowers on the card. I used green to go around the edges in order to get a bit of contrast between it and the white card background Simple, simple, simple. The gems are from Prima.

These two are on a black base A2 top folding card. Since I stayed in the same color family I could use similar embellishments on both cards.The sequins are from a Dollar Tree set.

There is a bit of glimmer on the You & Me.

This final one is in my eyes a fail. The concept did not work. I colored the words using the Tattered Angels Water Color paint and the white base layer. Once finished I felt it needed more white. So I used the Tim Holtz White Enamel and nope. Kept covering it and it just went from bad to worse. 

I think I will cut the words again and glue it on top of the enamel coating and give it a popped-up look. Only way to know if it will work is to try it.

The Vee-dio for the cards can also be found on my YouTube channel.

Thanks for stopping by today. Keep inking in the name of love.
Until then.
