The four hour card!

I'm not kidding. This card took me four hours from start to finish!! No, I wasn't working on the card for that entire time because these crazy kiddos needed something about every 3 minutes! It is one of those stamping kinda days. It's a good thing I like how it turned out. Do you know how upset I would be if I spent that much time on a card only to hate it when I was done?? LOL!
I used the new set Rejuvenate for this SCS color challenge card. The colors to use were Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango and Kiwi Kiss. I love Tangerine Tango even though I hardly ever use it. I know that I will be bringing it back out around Halloween :) I was a little unsure about how these colors would look with the bathroom scene, but I think they worked out just fine. The images were all colored with Prismacolor Pencils and blended using OMS. I have a lot of layers popped up on dimensionals to give some depth. I stamped some extra bubbles on scrap paper, colored, added shimmer using a Stardust Gelly Roll pen, cut and placed around the bathtub image.


See you tomorrow for Stampbook Wednesday!
