CCT 167 Embellish it

Happy Thursday !!
We're almost at the weekend YAY! And over at Cute Card Thursday we have a new challenge for you:-) It is to Embellish the main image:-) That can be ribbon, pearls, rhinestones, glitter... and I went a little crazy and used a piece of jewelry wire to look like fishing line! Our Sponsor this week is The Stamp Shopee:-)
As I said I used wire to look like fishing line, and well, It kinda wouldn't stay where I wanted it to:-( I used glue and well, it should have worked but it had a mind of its own, I like it, but the images black line is there and that was driving me nuts but I do like the effect! I also added dimensional glaze to his tackle box, and the fish and the reel to make them look shiny I also added stickles in a teal color on the fish to give him more "pizzaz" hehe My Image is another cool image that is a perfect choice for a "guy card" which is a Teddy Bo image called "gone Fishing" I colored him in Copic Markers and added prisma pencil as shading in chocolate brown, and a hint of pale blue around the bear as a shadow.
The Design paper is a combo of Basic Grey Origins/refresh and Stampin up designer series "tall Tails" . Stampin up CS was used also in I believe it's Old olive. I hope you all go check out the rest of the Teams wonderful creations:-)
Supplies used:
Image-Teddy Bo gone fishin
Copic markers: Yg93, YG95, W8, W6, W4, C5, C2, E50, E51, E53 Prisma Chocolate pencil for bear shading.
Punches Ribbon, and Cardstock/ Stampin up scalloped circle, 13/8 circle
old olive ribbon and cs
wire and dimensional glaze for embellishments
Have a great day and thank you for visiting me today:-)
