Hershey Bath from SMC

Hey all! Today I have Hershey Bath from SMC to share with you. I have been working on this card all day and though I thought it was going it be a cinch to put together, it proved quite difficult. I had it colored and the papers picked out before I started today, but it was just not coming together the way I saw it in my head. UUggghhh, don't you hate it when that happens. Anyway, here is the card.






This is a gate-fold card, my first, and I don't think it turned out too bad. I have stitched around the image and the DP and added some brads. All of the papers have been distressed and inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in vintage photo. I'm sure this could use some more embellies, but I was striking out with everything I tried, but that could just be because I was looking at the thing off and on all day, lol. I may have to revisit this one later. I had to think outside the box this week as I had earlier told you I ran out of Neenah paper. By Tuesday I figured I had to come up with something, so I printed this out on craft paper and gave it a go. I discovered you could do this st the copic creations blog and of course the DT make it look really easy, but for someone who's only been using copics for a few month I did find it a bit difficult.

Here's the inside. I know there's still a lot to be done, but it will wait till I find something to use it for. I can see really liking this type of card and I'll have to try another one soon! The bulk of this is made out of craft paper the one DF is some really old DCWV. the bubbles are a mixture of a white paint pen and stickles and I've even glossed up the water on the bottom below the tub.
Well, that about covers it. I'll be back real soon with anther SMC project.

Fabulous card Autumn, love the papers and fabulous colouring of that adorable image. Some cards are difficult to embellish aren't they? I've seen some little dog bones that would be perfect for this but where to get them ???
Thanks so much for playing along with us at Copic Creations.
