Hello everyone! Today our Inventory Reduction Challenge theme is Paper Piecing. This is a very fun technique for me and I loved doing this week's card!
I received my order for the Princes and Princesses stamps a bit ago. I just adore Tilda in Bath Cap and the Bath Tub stamps. And they were easy to paper piece.
The cardstock used is SU Bashful Blue, Marina Mist and Not Quite Navy and Cryogen White. The DP is DCWV Sweet stack from 3 or 4 years ago. The flowers are from Magnolia and Wild Orchid Crafts. Pearls are from my stash. The ribbon is from Magnolia. The bath tub paper is from Cornish Heritage Farms Scrapblocks Layers. Unfortunately the papers are no longer available. The bubbles are covered in Star Dust Stickles.
Then I stamped the tub on the Scrapblocks paper, colored the gold trim and red hearts, cut it out and glued it over the image on the background paper.
Tilda was colored with my Sketch Copic markers, cut out and glued over the image on the background.
I went crazy with the Stickles on the bubbles!!
The swirls looked like an elegant curtain pulled up and to the side of the bathroom. But it was too plain, so I added some pearls to the swirl ends.
I really love how this turned out :D Sure wish I had a fancy tub and bubbles to soak in!!
The Pampering sentiment is from House Mouse Stamps and is just perfect for this card.
I colored the stamp with SU markers first and then stamped it on the paper.
The sentiment panel was die cut using a MFT Die-Namics Textile Rectangle.
The jotting panel was cut using Nestabilities Labels Fourteen and edge inked with Marina Mist.
Thanks for allowing me to pamper you for a few minutes. Isn't it fun to just imagine you're enjoying that bubble bath!?!
Be sure to splash on over to my team mates' blogs to see the paper piecing creations they came up with.
