May you never outgrow bubbles

Hi and welcome to a late night post to announce the start of a brand new challenge over at ATSM.
This week it is our free for all challenge -


This is great for participants but I never know what to go with as there are so many ideas floating around in my head! Anyway here is what I finally made as my inspiration for you.

I bought these cheeky StampingBella chicks a few weeks ago, I just couldn't resist, well could you?
They were put away for use later and then when I saw the sketch over at LIM, I knew I had to use them! The circles in the sketch made me think of the bubbles.
Must admit I took a bit of a liberty with their sketch in this layout, hope that's OK, the basis is the same just flipped! I investigated how to colour the bubbles, using my Copics and although I didn't have the same colours, the overall effect is very effective I believe. 
After colouring the chicks, I fussy cut them and placed them on a pain white base card, adding a few extra bubbles in between. I then popped the chicks up on pads, leaving the extras uncoloured. The sentiment was stamped onto a die cut banner and slipped under the popped up chicks. 
For more inspiration check out the rest of the team here.

Hope it's not too much of a liberty with the sketch
