The cat (and that adorable! wee fish) are from The Cat's Meow. It's actually a set that Kat bought, so I know she'll like the image, heehee. I coloured them using watercolour pencil crayons (SU) and went over the bowl with Crystal Effects to make it look like glass. The little water splashes were covered in Stickles (Arctic Ice which is turquoisey) :0) [In hindsight, I think I would have added a little Stickles at the bottom of the fish bowl too and gone over it with Crystal Effects.]
Stickles was used to make faux gems in the scallops (You know how the S.U. corner rounder leaves a little circular impression in the middle of each scallop you punch?) Well, those little divots make a great guide for Faux-Bling Dotted Scallop. Here's how:
- Punch holes where the circular divots are in the scallop (or you can use a "Threading Water" punch Droooool!)
- Adhere a strip of cardstock in behind
- Fill the holes with Stickles
- (Or you can use the holes as a guide to add real tiny gems)
