The Pink Elephant Challenge #12




Hey everyone!! It's time for another super fun challenge from The Pink Elephant! This week is a sketch challenge brought to us by Carol Houghton. I just love her sketches!! They are always so much fun to work with.
Here is the sketch:

This sketch was the perfect layout for belly bands and labels, I thought. So, I decided to make a fun pampering gift set. Wouldn't this be wonderful for a mom on Mother's Day? I know that I would love to receive something like this!


Here is a close-up of the bath salts container. This is a container I picked up at the Goodwill a couple weeks ago for .20. I think it transformed nicely. I just cleaned it really good, added the band and filled with some yummy bath salts.


Here is the candle. Pretty straightforward. I created the belly band that will slide off to burn the candle.

And finally, the gift card to gift with the pampering set. I think my MIL will love this!


Materials: PAPER: Cascata-Coffee, Colormates-Totally Tan, Awesome Aqua (WorldWin Papers), STAMPS: Sentiment (Anna Griffin by Plaid) INK: Memories-Chestnut (Stewart Superior) OTHER: Prima Flowers, Embossing Folders-Swiss Dots, D'Vine Swirls, Silver Brads, Scalloped Scissors

Wow you do amazing work. I wondered what belly bands were until I scrolled down. It certainly would make a lovely gift - great idea Robin. I also love the card you made, those colours are lovely together. TFS
