Birthday Kisses...

This is one of my favorite Mo Manning images - "Bronte's Kisses".   It is so very versatile, I find myself pulling it out frequently.

I started with some of my favorite Basic Grey 6 x 6 papers - the first two layers starting from the base CS up.  Since this is for a small boy, I wanted to keep the embellishments to a minimum, so I went with the bubbles punch on two layers.  A piece of white paper was taped behind the one layer to let the bubbles stand out.  My husband thinks they look like Bronte may have a digestive issue going on (ewwww)!  Unintended, I promise!  Image was colored with Copics, edges inked for definition with Distress Inks.  The sentiment is computer generated, punched and matted with SU punches.
