…what’s left to create the illusion?

My card today is a bit of a cheeky one featuring Pinup 2 from SLS Lines.

So I’ve gotten into a bit of a groove making cards for the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers’ challenges and I am loving playing along.  I’d stalked their challenges for some time and after doing an F is for Fart card, well, how could I go past a B is for Boobs challenge?  While Edna’s motivation was noble (breast cancer awareness) I thought I’d go snarky, seeing I didn’t manage a snarky Steampunk effort for the last challenge.  I figured I had to start with an image that actually had boobs so there was some chance of ‘getting lucky’ and had seen someone art journal with this image so off I went to get her.

This is what you find when you scratch the Christmas trees off.

I drew in the bra (luckily my drawing skills extend that far) with my Copics and then followed a tut I bookmarked an eon ago to make the scratch panel.  I ummed and ahhed about what to write on the bra so went hunting through challenge sites, as I do when I need inspiration.  I knew I was going to go fairly CAS for this card and so started with the CAS challenge sites I follow and came up trumps with Addicted to CAS where their current code word is dream, voilà, I had my first bit of snarkiness.

To get the full snarky impact you have to look inside the card.

Over at Incy Wincy they are looking for pinups on projects, my image is definitely that, so I am entering my card over there.
