... So without further ado ... we have another new fortnight challenge over at Julia Spiri. Our theme as always is 'Anything Goes' but for the more adventurous, how about trying our twist, 'For a Child'. For our DT inspiration we were to make a card, but I couldn't resist to create this little fun bath tub and use the image 'It's a Boy' as I so enjoyed creating the little bag for the last challenge!! For more wonderful images, challenge details etc, these can all be found by following the links at the bottom of the page!! And so here is what I created... I hope you like it!!
Julia Spiri - It's a Boy image
Crafter's Companion - Watercolour card
ProMarkers - Tan, Caramel, Cool Aqua, Pastel Blue, Powder Blue, Ice Grey 1 and 2
Copic Ciao - Skin White and Pinkish White
Indigo Blu - Gee-Sso White
Docrafts - Artiste Pearl Ice Blue acrylic paint
Creative Expressions - Cosmic Shimmer Golden Jewels gilding flakes
From my stash - Small plastic tub, air dry clay for bath feet, gems, teddy embellishment, clear pebbles and topper sentiment
I first of all printed, coloured and carefully cut out the image and set to one side. To create this little fun bath tub, I found in my stash a little clear tub which I new would be so perfect for this. I first of all coated it with a layer of Indigo Blu white gee-sso as a base, inside and out. I then painted a layer of Docrafts ice blue acrylic paint. Once dry I added gold gilding flakes around the rim and created the little feet out of air dry clay, which I covered in gold gilding flakes to match and glued to the base. I also added gems and the sentiment too! I then lined it with white tissue paper, added the clear round marbles and iridescent pebbles to create the water bubbles effect! To complete the scene I attached the image as shown, added the teddy (also with gems attached) and a couple of little rubber ducks which no tub time should be without!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you join in with our new challenge, if you need more inspiration, then hop over to our blog and see all of the fabulous cards created by my fellow DT girls... why not leave them some love too!!
