Hanna Stamps Final Project - Bath Time!

Edited to add the frame.




Happy Saturday Hanna Stamps Fans! Hanna Stamps is in their second round of challenges for a Guest Designer. I am so super excited that I made it through round one. In the second round we must complete 3 projects, with one being a non-card item, using this adorable Riley taking a very relaxing bubble bath while enjoying some bubbly. You can now get your very own Bathtime Riley at the Hanna Stamps on-line store. All 15 girls will be showcasing thier final projects today. You can go to SCS and type in HSGDC3 to see the final projects. Be prepared to be astounded by all the talent.

My project is serving two purposes. One of course being the Hanna Stamps submission. The second as a "Thank You" gift for my Secret Sister Catherine. I still have one more Riley project to complete tonight to go along with the salt box and votive. I have always wanted to make a frosted votive holder and I thought this would be a lot harder than it was. The key was to make sure to use the embossing buddy before stamping and embossing. It looks really cute with a candle lit. For the Saltbox, I printed out a pattern I had from Stampin Up onto designer cardstock, cute it out and used my nesties to cut a window. I recycled the window film on the original salt box for mine. I colored up Riley with copics to coordinate with the packaging. For the Frame I decoupaged some paper to a wood frame(hopefully the colors coordinate with Catherine's bathroom), added some cuttlebugged letters, letters, and finally added some natural dried flowers. The whole room is colored with copics and also uses the new Hanna Stamps floor boards and brick wall. My thoughts for the wall was a studio apartment with some old exposed brick. There is crystal effects on the bubbles and bath bubbles. I hope Kristi, Vicki and my sistah Catherine like my projects. Keeping my fingers crossed! Have a great weekend!
