Relax...ahhhh - Tiddly Ink Challenge - Photo Inspiration

Hi ya everyone!
  This week at the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog we are asking you to get inspired using this gorgeous photo that Meredith - DT member and coordinator of Tiddly Inks chose.
Isn't this gorgeous!! I love it and so I took it a bit literal! LOL - I found this ever so cute bubble bath image at Tiddly Inks called Take Me Away and she can be found HERE.  I colored her in my Copics and added a bit of Stardust Stickles to her hair holder and the bubbles in the tub.
Next, I grabbed as many crinkle ribbons as I had and picked out colors that matched the curtain or as close as I could get anyhow.  I took a sheet of white paper and covered it in my ATG tape.  Next, I layered each ribbon from the bottom up with a scrunch sort of pattern.  I then punched holes in the top and added some eyelets and then ran a bit of twine through.
I used paper from the DCWV stack called Black Current.  I also used a pale pink paper from Cricut.  With this I cut out a few flowers with my punches glued two together and placed a cinnamon colored pearl in the center.  Oh, and that piece of brown scroll paper in the back that says relax is the paper that comes wrapped around my crinkle ribbon that I get from Prairie Bird Boutique on Etsy.  I just stamped the sentiment using a clear letter set I have.
Come over to the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog and join our photo inspiration fun!  Christy has put so many new and adorable stamps in the store too.  Here's a sneak of just a few:
All of these and more can be found right HERE in the What's New Section!
