Bubble Bath

More bubbles....!

I took some inspiration from Mel's bathtub card post for this card - love all the detail she puts into her art! I sewed some clear seed beads on first, here and there, then added more bubbles using Crystal Lacquer and microbeads (teeny, tiny hole-less beads) - they sort of 'clumped' (aaahhh!!) so I moved them around with a toothpick until I got them where I wanted them, then let them dry over night.

I used Crystal Lacquer to make some water spill over the side of the tub and onto the floor. The image was painted first using reinkers mixed with Shimmerz.

What else did I do here... the bow was made with a Bow-Easy - I threaded the ribbon through the button holes. All the stamps I used are from Heartfelt Creations. If you like bears, they have a bunch of cute scenes to choose from... you can see them all here! The one I used is called "Bubble Bath".

Here's a closer look at the bubbles - sort of hard to see still, but hopefully you get the idea.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
