Relax....

Take a break.....

I did this card for today's sketch challenge on SCS. I received these beautiful new images from My Favorite Things in the mail....Thanks Kim! I love the lavender blooms that are peeking out of this tub so that was my color scheme.
I used the "sprout" DP from Memory Box. The background I stamped CHF's newest ScrapblockTM (Scroll) and embossed in white....so purdy.

For the main image I paper pieced the stripe DP onto the tub then went with my silver Krylon Leaf Pen and did the accents of the tub. This gave me the chrome finish I was looking for.
The blooms were colored with my copics and I airbrushed the edges of the scallop before removing my nestabilities die (to give that extra layer appearance).

We're off to the lake today to enjoy the weather! Have a good one!

Such a pretty card! I love the pattern on the tub. The colors of your card are so pretty too! I love the beautiful papers too! Most definitely a "relaxing" card.
