Shopping Our Stash 170 - Shower Time

Scrub-a-Dub Tuesday!! It's Shower Time!! That's this week's SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge theme.

This week we'd like you to use your shower curtain as inspiration for your project. If you don't have a shower curtain (or one that you'd like to use) you can use the shower curtains of any member of the SOS crew.

Check out the SHOPPING OUR STASH BLOG for all the details of the challenge, to see our shower curtains (that sounds kinda stalker-ish) and while you are there show my SOS crewmates some crafty lovin'

So here's what my shower curtain looks like, we have an "under the sea" theme going on...

And here's the card I made based on my shower curtain (my card is based on a fab card I received from my crafty friend Deb in a card swap):

I wanted to pick up the orange from the star fish as an accent colour. I used my marker spritzer to add some orange spritzes all over the card, distressed the edges and inked those up in the orange as well.

Shite I used to make this card:

  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (SU)
  • Hashtags stamp set (Tim Holtz)
  • Mowed Lawn and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink (Tim Holtz)
  • Pumpkin Pie marker (SU)
  • Marker spritzer (SU)
  • Silver sequins (Joanns)
Hope you'll play along with the SOS crew this week, let's see your shower curtain and how it inspires you to get crafty!

What a great way to interpret that curtain! Love the grunge-y look of it.

Fantastic card, Donna!! What a fun theme over at SOS! My shower curtains all have moose, or deer or bears on them--I don't have one wildlife stamp to match!!! Figures!! LOL!! XOXO-Shari

I love this take on your shower curtain! And so much better to have a card with a slightly grunge look than a grungy shower curtain... :D

Donna, i just fell in love with this when I saw it. It is a wonderful concept design and everything translates so nicely. Just fabs!

OMG, the HOOKS! Eek! Those are adorable! And now that you say it, it does sound a little stalkerish. Whoops. I love the perfect spritzing! I wonder if I still have any marker spritzers (I used to, and then Connor found them. Sigh.)
