Stay Cool

OK so this started out for the Limited Supply Challenge on SCS today. We were supposed to only use things from a list. Well I used 1 thing that wasn't one the list, so I guess I'm disqualified, but I still like my card :)

Here's the list:

Food stamps
Up to 2 backgrounds (stamps)
Hemp or fibers
Sponging, tearing, distressing
Faux stitching
Paper piercing
CS & Ink: Earth Elements and/or bold brights + neutrals

Ok so the shrimp might be pushing it a little bit as far as a "food" stamp, but I'll say it again, Shrimp are food (even if they have eyes ;) ) LOL Anywho... I stamped my shrimp on a transparency (this is my disqualifying move) and colored them with my Cameo Coral marker. Then I cut them out and ran them through my Xyron X, some facing one direction and some facing the other. It's a great technique for getting a reverse image.

The glass is doodled and if you look ever so closely, you can see "ice cubes" in the glass. I would have LOVED to have used my Crystal Effects to give them an icy shine, but that would have been an even bigger no no.

The background is still one of my favorite things to do with Print Pattern. I love making the little dots with my Signo gel pen. (I figured since faux stitching was on the list, technically the white gel pen was on the list too ;) ain't I a stinka'?)

Great card!!! I LOVE shrimp! Your sentiment is way cool, I love the double looks like the shrimp are trying to stay cool and it looks like a shrimp appertizer. Thanks for the laughter and sharing.

Welcome to my new an improved blog. I hope you can find something useful, insightful, humorous or just plain silly here. Enjoy!
