Lacy Sunshine Add Flowers


I'm cutting it so close to the end of the Lacy Sunshine Add Flowers Challenge that I'm gonna have to come back and fill in the gaps.  Phew!  Just made it with 3 minutes to spare.  I was thrilled to find out that as a member of the Creative Artist Team for Lacy Sunshine, posting once a month on the Lacy Sunshine Blog(where you find out what's New and Now in the Lacy Sunshine world), I'm still eligible to enter the challenges on the Challenge Blog and contests on the FB Group because I love playing there.  This card is doing double duty.  The current FB Contest is to use any of the Bubbles stamps so I'm entering this there, as well.  My plan was to make this look like a fluffy white towel on a towel bar using some cool textured paper from Sizzix.  I hand cut the towel shape and used my Spellbinders to cut the hole for Bubbles to peek through.  the sentiment was hand stamped with individual letters from an ancient set which took me FOREVER to get straight.  Why I didn't use my computer to generate it, I'll never know.  Guess I thought "practice makes perfect" but sheesh!

 
The adorable image is Bubbles Bath available in the Sticky Wings Section of the Shop.  She's colored with Copics and I've added some fun holographic bubbles and Stickles to the suds.  The additional daffodils are rubber stamps from Heartfelt Creations, cut with the corresponding dies by Spellbinders.
 

The center step design worked well for my plan and here you can see a bit of the dimension as several portions of Bubbles' daffodil bathtub and towel were fussy cut and popped on the image.  I tried to curl the "towel" to look like it was hanging on the (coffee stir stick) towel bar as well.  The whole thing actually turned out better than I expected.  Woohoo!
