Scrap Africa Challenge : Filmstrip

So the latest challenge over at Scrap Africa really broke me out of my comfort zone!  I’ve seen the filmstrip chippies in shops; I’ve seen the filmstrip chippies on LO’s.  I love them, but they never really seemed to “grab” me. 
However, I thoroughly enjoyed working with the chippie!  It took me a good 30 mins to plan and plot WHICH photo’s I was going to use and in WHICH order they were going to go!  I was also really excited to have found a roll of filmstrip washi tape at our local plastics warehouse! 
So here is what I put together for this challenge:

For the title, I inked some cardboard lettering I'd scrounged up from out of nowhere (!!) with a dark teal, then I used the same bubble stamp (inked with silver) that I used as a central background behind my main pictures.  While still slightly damp, I coated the letters with glossy accents, that way, the bubbles were ever so slight smudged so that it gave off an underwater viewing effect.  I love it!

Hope you like it!  It was SO much fun to work on!  Amazing how the simplest of LO's take the longest!!!
