A Little Liquid Cheer

Time for a new year and a new Mix It Up Challenge at SugarPea Designs!   This bear likes his martini dry with one olive.  That's what he told me anyway. 

The background was created with the Geo Snowflake stencil and gold metallic embossing paste (borrowed, brand unknown).  I stamped the bear, masked his paws, then stamped the martini glass in both Memento Cantaloupe and Brilliance Gold to match the gold embossing paste stenciled background.  I then masked the top line of the martini glass to add in the olive and pick.  The bear was cut out with the coordinating die and shaded with Copic cool gray markers.  The "cheers" was also shaded with Copics.
I was certainly inspired by those colors and that dazzling photo!  How will you be inspired?  You can choose the photo, the sketch, or both!  I hope to see you Mix It Up in the SugarPea Designs gallery!
