Pink and blue bath

Do you remember the bathrooms from the "olden" days?  The ones that had the Pepto Bismol pink tile and the aqua toliets?  You laugh, but my sister bought a house about five years ago that had that exact color scheme in the bathroom. 

When I saw the challenge over at Squigglefly this week - SFC1712 - use pink and blue, I knew exactly what image I wanted to use - Beautiful Bather by Fawn Palmer at Squigglefly.  I knew I wanted to color those little tiles white and pink!  I couldn't wait!  I used the palest pink to color the tub, in the hopes it looks white with a tinge of pink with blue trim.  I colored the bubbles the palest blue and added baby blue Stickles as highlites. 

Here's what I used:
Copics:  E53 E55 RV17 RV21 YG01 YG05 RV23 YR02 YR00 B34 B21 R02 E00 B0000 E0000 RV0000
White Signo pen - Uniball
Victorian Velvet Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Ranger
Pink Say it With Crystals - Prima
Day Dream paper and My stickease - CTMH
Baby Blue Stickles - Ranger

Hope ya'll had a great National Scrapbooking Day and a Happy Cinco De Mayo!
