A Nice Soak

This is "Edna Soaking," a rubber stamp by Art Impressions. Isn't she a hoot!? You can find her here. She is colored with a combination of Copics and Prismacolor pencils (blended with Gamsol) and I also used a few chalks. like for her cheeks - I found a bright pink color that I had to use for Edna's rouge! I embellished the bubbles with a Viva Deco pearl pen and some clear dots and I used some other bling for her big pearl earrings and flashy diamond :) I actually cut a square rhinestone in half (using wire cutters) and then, once it was placed on Edna's hand, I topped it with Glossy Accents so it would look round on top. I also used Glossy Accents on the puddles of water on the floor. The card was cut from Bazzill cardstock, Avalanche, and then I added some printed paper that I have had for a long time (since 1999), Provo craft 8.5 x 11 printed paper "Fishing Time" (blue squares)! After I switched to 12x12, I put all my small sheets in a folder.
Every once in awhile, I pull it out to look through what I bought all those years ago! Oh well, I knew then I would need it someday, right? - ha ha :D The cute towel-like paper didn't have any identifying information on it but I know I have seen these sheets in the specialty paper section of the craft stores. I cut out the frame using Nestabilities Labels Two and Bazzill cardstock, whirlpool. I used Disney Cinderella sticker letters for the sentiment. Doesn't Edna look like she would say, "dahling, there's nothing a nice soak won't fix." She looks like quite the sage and has seen enough in her life that she just can't sweat the small stuff! It made me feel better, anyway ;)
