Babs Taking a Bubble Bath


I love this Rubber Romance image, Babs. She is probably my very favorite, I have her in regular size and ATC size. I think she is so useful especially for gifts. I love to give homemade bath products, spa gift cards and gift sets from Bath and Body works as well. She makes a perfect card to go with that kind of gift. She's great for packaging up bath type gifts (I actually have another project using her later in the week).

For today's card I embossed and sponged to get a nice effect on the card without multiple layers. If you would like to see a small tutorial on how I did this, check out the Rubber Romance blog. I was able to quickly and easily finish this card. She is going to be one of a set going to my friend for her birthday. I plan to use the other ATC sized divas and use this same format to make a set.

There is also a sketch challenge posted on the Rubber Romance blog. A new one is posted on the 10th and 20th of every month. If you have some Rubber Romance stamps get them inky and enter the challenge, there is a Rubber Romance prize for every challenge.
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are having a great week.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Babs from Rubber Romance
Ink: Memento, Bashful Blue

I love the simplicity of this card. The image is too cute and you're right it would go perfect with a spa kit or anything from bath and body. I really like the blue edge under the scallops too.

LOVE IT! I love how you used the die and kept the card front simple so that the focus is on the image. Great job.
