Lizzie Anne Sneak Peek!


How fun to get to sneak a peek at a cute set called In the Powder Room!  This set, with its retro feel, really makes me smile!  I remember those pink sponge rollers (you'll see 'em on Lizzie's blog today...do they still make those?!) and I can still recall washing my hands in a sink that looked almost exactly like this one!  Ok, now I guess I'm really dating myself!

I'm not sure these old-fashioned sinks came in anything but white, so when coloring with my Copics I kept to warm grays for the porcelain and cool grays for the knobs.  This time I actually colored my image before choosing paper, so I was pleased to find that this Max and Whiskers designer paper matched with its warm and cool tones.

The bubbles were colored with Copic 0000 markers in blue-green and red, then given a dusting of superfine glitter to add some iridescence.  A sheer twinkle bow (tied with the Bow Easy) and button knotted with sparkly white cording lend more emphasis to the squeaky clean theme.  The simple layout is intended to be reminiscent of a bathroom wall with floral wallpaper and striped border.

Check out today's sneak peeks from all the Lizzie Anne girls (links are to the right on the sidebar), and come back tomorrow for the release.  Such cute stamps, you won't wanna miss it!

  1. This is really cute! I love your attention to detail, in the way you rounded the bottom corners of the panels to mimic the silhouette of the sink.

    Your talk of the retro sink made me giggle. My inlaws still have the original bathroom sink in their home, which was built in the late 40s or early 50s... but it's *blue*, about the same color as the "readers" portion of your Feedburner tag on the right. It matches the tile, the tub and the toilet. Seriously.
