Mother's Day Spa

Happy Wednesday to you all. I had a wonderful vacation last week, however I really missed my stamp room. I was able to spend some quality time with my neglected stamp room last night. I started a card using my May QKR Stampede DT stamps...and will hopefully be back with that tomorrow. Since every other Thursday is my day to post on the QKR Blog, I thought I would try to post on my blog EVERY Thursday with a new QKR card. Wait to you see some of the new stamps I got too....sooooooo cute! I wanted to share a card I made using a new stamp set I purchased at my LSS this weekend. I thought it was just adorable, and also perfect for mother's day. So I made this card my my MIL.

This stamp set is from Inky Antics, and is called Spa Turtle...I bought the whole clear set so I got more fun stamps to play with. I stamped the tub on a piece of CS I pulled out of a magazine. It was actually an ad for some CS company, and I thought it was perfect to stamp on too (recycling!). It is hard to see from the photo, but it is a pearly, shimmery, cream color. I cut out the tub and added the little turtle. For the bubbles I used crystal lacquer to make them shiny. I colored everything with water color crayons. For the towel turban, I colored it pink, and added some sparkly pink fun flock I recently found at my LSS. I layered the tub unto some cream CS that I scored and clear embossed to look like tile. Last I used some of the different stamps from the set on the base to make a background. Here is a close up of the turban...OH...almost forgot about the eyes!!! I picked these eyes up at Bass Pro in Harrisburg, PA last weekend. A fellow stamping friend has mentioned these before, and since I was there I thought I really NEEDED them. Yes I spent $14 at Bass Pro on little My hubby was a little confused when he saw the charge for Bass Anyway...I have lots more of these little eyes I will be using on cards.

Well that is all for today. Hope to be back tomorrow with a very..."owly" fun card for you.
