Have a "Bubble"Licious Day

Hello everyone and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner.
I hope your week has started off nicely for you.  I'm still trying to get back into the swing of things after a few days away from home. My hubby and I took a much needed trip in the RV to just get away for a bit. It was a wonderful trip and now I'm trying to play catch-up.  But that's okay, the trip was totally worth facing a mountain of laundry today!

I took a few stamps and my Copic markers with me on our trip and colored up the cutest little gumball machine! Once we got home and I got everything unpacked, I knew just what I wanted to do with this fun image.......

Materials Used:
* Candy Tube Box - SVG Cutting Files ( I did alter the pattern to hold 3 small tubes and I added a higher back piece)
* Sentiment mat - Silhouette Online Store
* Images and sentiment - bubblegum4me stamp set by "The Stamps of Life"
* Glossy Accents
* White Gel Pen
*Atyou Glitter Pen
* Twine - Timeless Twine

Isn't this sentiment fun?!

After coloring all the images with my Copic markers, I gave the gumballs a coat of Glossy Accents.  I used an Atyou Spica Glitter pen in Silver on a few of the "metal" parts of the gumball machine.

 I really love the way this project turned out!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope to catch up on my blog visits over the next day or two so I'll be seeing you soon!

Until next time,
