double layout-polar bear
I'm trying to get back to more scrapping by entering some challenges and saw this challenge at StampAmemory for a double layout. As that is mostly what I do I've chosen some photo's I took at Seaworld in the middle of this year. Like the weather on the Gold Coast when we were there it was a bit overcast when I took the photo's. The cardstock is white Bazzill, the paper is retired Stampin Up Petals and Paisleys. It was perfect as it has the sea colours I was after and also a pop of yellow to pick up the bear's toy. I've used Kaisercraft flowers layered with pearl centres. I've also used some vellum with a lovely glitter spot on it, adhered it to cardstock and cut the edges to resemble snow. I've then used some glitzy Flower Soft on the edges. To make the embellishment I stamped the SU polar bear (from a current set-Zoo Review) onto Whisper White card and then using Heat and Stick powder added some superfine glitter. I learnt this technique from Kay (see link at right) and it gave me just the look I wanted. I've also used Kaisercraft Droplets to mimic water splashes. On the background I've stamped the snowflake/star from the SU Season of Joy stamp set.
