Hydrangeas in Tub

Welcome my crafty friends,

Hope that you are all doing well.  Summer seems to be zipping right along I do wish it would slow down a little as here in Maine Winter sure is long.

Last week on Facebook I re-posted a picture of several bathtubs with different plantings so I decided to create a card with a bathtub of flowers.  I had some flowers left from the last card along with one of the backgrounds I recently created so that is what I have used.

Card base is 6" X 6" edged with Distress Oxide Antique Linen ink.

Background piece was created using 6" square black cardstock then used a few Distress Oxide Sprays.  Edges were torn then inked with Distress Oxide Antique Linen.  Adhered to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

5" square white Soft Finish Cardstock  was cut using 2 largest dies from Spellbinders Candlewick Squares taped together.  Square was attached to card front using dimensional tape.

Bathtub  (an old Karen Burniston die set from when she was with Elizabeth Craft Designs) was cut from white Soft Finish Cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back ( I cut 2) adhered one on top of other.  I rubbed  clear VersaMark over bathtub lightly trying not to completely cover then clear embossing powder was poured on then tapped off heated with heat gun.  Then I did some shading using inks to give an aged look.  Couple pieces of dimensional tape was adhered to center back of tub then adhered to card front.

Garden Notes Hydrangea 2, Baby's Breath, Ostrich Fern and Ivy Vine were used to fill the tub using Kids Choice Glue to attach.

Hope you are inspired to go create a card - think outside the box look at your dies see what you might have that can be a vessel to hold your flowers.

Thanks for stopping by and until next time - Happy Crafting!
