SOAK YOUR CARES AWAY

Hey there, here's another card for the Hope You Can Cling To breast cancer card drive through Splitcoast Stampers.  At the end of the week, I'll mail my first group of cards to the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas to benefit breast cancer patients and their families.  I'm so glad I was able to participate this year!  Taylor's challenge, "Fight Like a Girl!", is challenging us to create a project with some girlie embellishments on it...flowers, lace, glitter, bling, pearls or ribbons.

Seriously, what girl doesn't want to pamper herself?  I chose this awesome bathtub image from Our Craft Lounge's Pretty and Pampered set.  I've been able to use so many new products on all these cards (this set being one of them)...well, I'm just tickled PINK!  Ha!  The bathtub was stamped on white card stock then masked so the bottles could be stamped behind it.  Everything was colored with Copic markers. 
You probably can't see the sparkle, but the bubbles have a Clear Spica pen under the Glossy Accents.  It really shines!  The roses are rolled flower dies from Die-namics. They were colored with Copics, spritzed with water and mushed a little when they were being rolled for a little distressed look.  The bow is ribbon I had in my stash and was tied with a Bow-Easy.  I've been making bows like this for years, but I used two nails and a chunk of wood...it's nice that someone came up with a better product!  I suppose that's it for this one.
