SCS Challenge "Rock, Paper, Scissors"
This card was a bit of a stretch for me, for sure! I made it for the SCS challenge LSC189. What?! We can't use ribbon??? And no Cuttlebug embossing or Nesties? You have severely handicapped me, ya know! LOL. Fortunately we could use decorative scissors, plus brads, pearls, glitter, etc. Otherwise, I'd have never been able to make the card!
I just got some wonderful Pearlescent Watercolors today from My Favorite Things. After coloring the image with Prismacolor pencils and odorless paint thinner, I used some to add shimmer to the iceberg the bears are on. The starry sky has silver star adhesive brads, tiny silver ball adhesive brads and adhesive rhinestones. I added some swirls with a Copic Spica clear glitter pen. A touch of Stickles was used on the baby bear's scarf. You can't see it, but both bears have shiny noses, courtesy of Judi Kins Diamond Glaze.
The cardstock layers were cut with Stampin' Up! wavy scissors. I wanted it to look like waves in the sea. What do you think? Did you think of waves? ;-)
