Burt's Bath

Hello High Hopes Fans

TGIF!!!  The weekend is almost here and I am thrilled to share with you another card I recently made, using some adorable High Hopes Stamps!

Inside of Card

This is Burt's Bath (R103), It's Your Day (G036), part of sentiment from Swinging Birthday (H191) and Chilax Sentiment.  These stamps are so fun to use!!!  

I coloured Burt with Tombow Markers and water. After the image was all coloured and dry, I added some Glossy Accents to the all the bubbles in the bath, along with some yellow stickles to the centres of the flowers on Burt's shower cap.  Some navy blue ink was sponged lightly around the edges of the image, after it was die cut using a Spellbinders - circle die.  A piece of navy cardstock was die cut using the Spellbinders - Petite Scalloped Circle Die to layer the image.  The sentiment on the outside of the card was heat embossed with navy blue embossing powder. I used a 3/4" & 1" circle punch to punch out the bubbles(circle) for each word.  Each of the 3 circles were then placed in a Tim Holtz - Bubbles Embossing Folder to add some texture.  A white gel pen was applied to accent the bubble like circles, to help create more depth on the card.  Foam tape was used to adhere the sentiment and add some dimension.  
For the inside of the card, the sentiment was heat embossed using white embossing powder, on navy cardstock.  It was then cut out with a 1 1/4" circle punch.  Two additional navy blue circles were punched using a 3/4" and 1" circle punch.  The white gel pen was again used to add some accents on all of the bubbles.  Glue Dots were used to adhere the bubbles on the inside of this card, in order for the card to remain flat and to be able to close it completely.  The additional " Happy Birthday" sentiment - which is only part of the Swinging Birthday stamp was inked and stamped with navy ink.
