Dare To Dream

Time for my weekly post for Artistic Outpost and this week I am showcasing the Generation Redux plate.
The backdrop of my card has been created by spritzing soapy bubbles with Dylusions Sprays and then pressing the card into the sprayed bubbles.
The focal image has been stamped in the bottom corner with Potting Soil Archival Ink and then repeated in a spotlight circle.
I have added ribbon and a decorative embellishment and key for added interest and dimension. I have secured the ribbon using a Tiny Attacher.
I have added a decorative button and brass piece which I received from my fellow team member Linda to add a touch more dimension to my design.
I have added the sentiment 'dare to dream' to the bottom of my card and added background stamping using the numbers from the plate stamped with Aquamarine Archival Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

What a brilliant bubbly background, and another great echo of your main stamped image in that rosy circle. Lovely!
