Shall We Dance?

Welcome!  Some stamps just make me smile, like this one - dancing bears from Lili of The Valley called Shall We Dance which I have had over 5 years.   I stamped the image with Memento Rich Cocoa ink on GKD white CS and colored with copics.  I had fun accessorizing their fancy outfits with Black Gemstones(cufflinks and buttons)  and Pearls (necklace and shoes).  I did a color wash in the background with Distress Oxide Ink and a water brush.  After trimming the image, I adhered it to a mat of dark gray CS and then to a base card of shimmering  pink pearl CS. The GKD sentiment was stamped with black ink and embossed with clear EP.  I will stash this card away for our anniversary in October. 

Challenges:
ModSquad Challenge: Wedding Bears in June-The challenge this week is to make a Wedding or a LOVE themed card. Must use a critter somewhere on the card. 
The House That Stamps Built: Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge J1318. Used Gems or Pearls, Background Wash, Wedding/Love
Retro Rubber Challenge: #88 Anything Goes.  I used the LOTV stamp that I have had since 2013.
Addicted to Stamps and More: Challenge 296 Anything Goes

Your image is so adorable!!! I knew as soon as I saw it that it must be LOTV; so cute! Love how you added the pearls and rhinestones to dress up their outfits! Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.
