Wind Down!

Today's Color Challenge over on SCS is Pretty in Pink, Kiwi Kiss, and Baja Breeze. I love this combo! Such a feminine color combo! I made this card with one of my new stamps from MFT. Have you checked out their Bubble Bin? Some really great deals! I can see where I am going to have to restrain my self from buying every week!

When I was growing up, my grandparents had a bathroom in their house that was completely tiled in Baja Breeze colored tiles. I LOVED that bathroom. I can still visualize it to this day. I loved taking baths in that big blue tub and can remember tracing the tile designs with my fingers along the walls. It is such a vivid memory that I can remember the smells of my grandfather's aftershave and the faint smell of bleach from my Grandmother's always clean as a whistle house! Just had to share that with you all! Thanks for listening!

I stamped my image in Momento's tuxedo black on watercolor paper. I used my reinkers and an aqua painter to color the image. I used a gold gel pen to color in the claw feet and hardware on the tub. Card base is Pretty in Pink, and I also used baja breeze and kiwi kiss to mat. The dp is from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie collection. Added some gold brads in the corners to tie in the gold hardware on the tub. The ribbon is pretty in pink taffeta.

Thanks for stopping by today! I always enjoy your comments! Have a great day!
