Prairie Fairy Fridays 58 Guest Designer - another card

This is another card for Prairy Fairy Fridays 58, again using the inspiration photo given for that challenge:

For my card I used the sketch for CPS 228:

Papers are DCWV and the embossed panel was produced with CraftConcepts folder 'budding vine' and sanded to reveal the white core of the textured card.

I stamped the lovely Kanban bath, bubbles and 'relax' sentiment and heat embossed with clear detail powder, colouring the bath and taps with copics. I stuck a line of gems across the card (I wish I could have used pearls, but I only had large ones that looked out of place, so used the gems instead).

I'm also linking for these challenges:

Little red wagon 91: heat embossing
Pixie cottage 80: emboss it
My craft spot 18: emboss it

  8. I really like the bath tub image, Hazel
    what a fun card it makes

  9. You have really captured the spirit of the prompt. Great card.

  10. Hi Hazel, love this card - love the bath image. Isn't it strange that with all the stash we have there are times we just do not have the very item we need - in your case the pearls for this card. Thanks for popping by earlier and ref the Hougie board - I really find it so useful for several reasons, 1. it's marked out in inches on one side and centimetres on the other so I can follow any instructions no matter what measurements are called for. 2. It measures 12"x12" which makes it fine for scrapbook papers too. 3. As long as you get the book, sold separately, there isn't any shape of card you can't make, there's boxes, including exploding, there's also instructions for simple embossing and the concertina flowers that are so on trend (get me!) at the moment. No, I'm not on commission, it's just a great tool to have in your arsenal :) Elizabeth x
