It's time for another challenge over at A Gem of a
Challenge, and this week (Challenge #91) the theme is "Pearls", which can include anything pearlescent, be it paints, papers, embellishments, etc. This challenge will run from 8:00 AM August 3, to
6:00 PM August 9, and the prize for the
winner will be 2 individual digi images (NOT SETS) from Pink Gem Designs. So do head
on over and see what the rest of the lovely Design Team have created, then join
us, won't you? We'd love to see you!
"Baby Polar Bear." Isn't she just the sweetest thing? For the white base layer I sponged two colors of blue ink through a snowflake stencil. OK, I'll confess - I used the wrong color of blue ink and redid it with the correct color thus giving a slightly two-toned appearance. I like it.
I colored her with Copics then masked her while I airbrushed the
background, also with Copics. Some clear glitter on the littls stars
and snow, and some gold glitter on the big star added a nice note of
sparkle. I splattered some thinned white acrylic paint to mimic falling
snow, once again masking the image.
The diecut snowflakes have been glittered up, and I hand wrote the word "JOY" on the tiny banner and added a couple of pearls. Pearls also decorate the little bear's winter scarf.
A different angle to try to show the sparkle and dimension.
I also stenciled the inside a little bit.
Thank you so much for joining me today and I wish you a lovely Saturday
doing the things YOU want to do, be it crafting, spending time with the
family, or both! And don't forget to visit us at A Gem of a
Challenge and play along!
