I'm really going to date myself here and ask, does anyone remember the commercial tag line, "Calgon, Take Me Away!"? Well this card was inspired by that commercial tag line. This image, Birdbath Chick, reminds me of the blissful ladies in their bathtubs full of Calgon bubbles. To maintain that calm, soothing feeling, I limited the color palette to blue, white, and peach. It doesn't show very well in the photo, but I added Paper Glaze to the bath bubbles after lightly coloring them to give them a glossy look.
Today's FTHS Sketch, number 41, is getting earmarked to use again! I like the flexibility and simplicity of this design.
My recipe for this card is:
Image: Birdbath Chick
Paper: Doodlebug Up,Up, and Away, Digitally created blue stripe, and
American Crafts cardstock
Coloring Medium: Copics
Quickutz die cut bubbles

Update on Greg's Dad: He is out of the hospital and in a rehab/nursing home facility. No intestinal blockages or cancer was found! The doctor's best guess as to the cause of his deterioration is spinal stenosis. At this point they are concentrating on physical therapy and medication as the course of treatment. He is not strong enough for any surgery. The immediate goal is to get him walking.
