Today's card is a fairly quick one.  Well, it was quick to put together, but painting the image usually takes at least an hour, much longer than using my Copics, but I love the relaxation 'therapy' of the water-colouring.

I've created a shaped case card using a large Go Kreate die, embossed the backing paper and inked around the edges for some definition.

Although it's quite a simple card, I added some bright red embellishments against the white background, and sneaked in a couple of blue accents to bring out the bubbles which I highlighted in glossy accents for some bubble-shine!
