The Technique Twist #15- Bubble Background Plus An Extra Fun Card

This week over at The Technique Twist our challenge was to create a card using bubble background  and of course having a twist on it.

Here is my card as well as another fun card that fits the theme I am going for this week- Doctor Who (the beloved 50 year old BBC Sci-fi show). 

Right away I wanted to make a card using the phone box/police box from SU's retired set Feeling Sentimental because the bubble background reminded me a great deal of the opening credits to Doctor Who. My twist on it is that after I did the bubble background, I embossed it with the honeycomb embossing folder because the inside of the TARDIS (the Blue Police Box) has honeycombed walls. 

I punched out the heart for the Police Box an attached and than of course if you know Doctor Who (he has Two Hearts) stamped using a Paper Pumpkin set the hearts and the arrow love this. 

I used basic British Colors in my card as well with Real Red, Whisper White and Pacific Point.

This would make a great Valentine's/Birthday Card for a fan of the show. 

I was doing on Pinterest and did a search for Doctor Who cards and saw a version of the 11th Doctor card and decided what the heck- let's make a companion card to my bubble card.

So I took punched some real red hearts and circle to make my bow tie. I used a dimensional to pop the center of the tie. 

I than used Soft Suede card stock to create the Doctor's coat. I than lined the coat with some Very Vanilla  and added two Real Red Hearts that I punched out as well as some white pearls. 

Both cards are super fun and I would love to try more of the bubble background technique with the kiddos. I think they would get a kick out of blowing the bubbles.
