Ice-cream-colored room

HGTV is kind of the default TV station in our house, which really has nothing to do with this card, except to say you just don't see bathrooms like this on HGTV very often. And speaking of not seeing things very often, that is sort of the challenge at Simon Says Monday Challenge. Specifically, the challenge is "I ought to use this more," using supplies or techniques we tend to overlook. I have several in this card, including:
Digi images (this one by Bird). I automatically look through my rubber or clear stamps first.
Ribbon. In proportion to how much ribbon I own, I don't use enough.
This die. It's a lovely frame, but most images aren't that big, so I don't use it much.
Glossy Accents. I used a ton on the mirror in this image. I can go months and months without using the stuff, but when I use it I love the shine.

The image is colored in pencils, and there's some silver gel pen on the claw feet on the tub, and on the frame of the mirror, which soaked up the last of the gel in the pen. (Yippee, an excuse to go to the craft store).

For Clear It Out Challenge, we were supposed to use the color of our favorite ice cream flavor. Mine is mint chocolate chip, hence the pale green. I also like anything with raspberries, so that's the purple-ish color.

I'm entering this card in these challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Monday -- I Ought to use this more
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday -- anything goes
Clear It Out -- Favorite Ice Cream Color
Word Art Wednesday #138 -- anything goes
Sister Act #62 -- anything goes

  3. I don't watch HGTV but I have to laugh at your mentioning that you wouldn't see bathrooms like that on there. I'm too practical for a bathroom like that... I need a small space (so the rest of the house can have more room) and a shower. As cool as claw foot tubs are....! Fun card and I love the idea of that challenge. I'm sure everyone has those "I ought to use this more" items. I have the in droves.

  4. What a fantastic card. I love the colors. I remember having a tub like this when I was a kid. Thank you for joining us at Clear It Out for our Ice Cream Challenge.
