The lime green around the edges is acryllic paint with clear crackle paint on top. I also rubbed some lime green glitter on top. The image is painted with Inkabilities rainbow inks dropped into about 1/2 ounce of water. It really like the vivid colors these inks yeild.

Layer #0: I used black paper, edged with a gel pen.
Layer #1: I stamped the cat on white paper, painted the eyes with Twinkling H20s, outlined the eyes with a black pen, put epoxy stickers on the irises, embossed the pink in the corner, and painted the corner with Twinkling H20s.
Layer #2: I stamped the cat on green paper and embossed, painted the fur with turquoise, shimmering purple, and silver glitter paint, painted the nose and teeth, and cut out the eye holes and ear.
I think this is my best card. I really like it. Thank you, Esmerelda!

I really wish I would have paid more attention to this image before carving. I think that the edge of the bathtub needs to come up about a centimeter. It looks like her head is resting on air like this. I'll have to pay more attention in the future.
Finally, I've never admitted this publically, but I have a problem with taking out too many details when I carve. I put them in initially, and end up carving them away one by one. This bubble bather's "towel" was supposed to be hair. I butchered it. Could you tell?
[I forgot to tell how I did the "wall paper." I just used a mask to cover up the bather, and watermarked a flowery stamp in the background. When you chalk over that, the flowers stand out in a darker shade.]
