I saw this Saturday afternoon and got the idea immediately, I just needed to get some time to work on it, and unfortunately, that didn't happen until yesterday. AS soon as I finished the card, the plumber arrived and I ended up having to empty several shelves in the basement so everything got stacked on my desk, burying the poor little thing. At least Ronnie had plenty to drink and she doesn't seem to be too phased by the ordeal.
I went to the Stamp Scrap Art Tour on Saturday and bought several items from Inky Antics. They have several lines of stamps from pretty to quirky and sassy. I LOVE the sassy stamps the best. Those are cards I can make and send to my girlfriends. You will probably see me using a lot of their stamps in the coming weeks. Another great thing about this company is that they are based in Cleveland. Woohoo! Maybe that's why I connect to their stamps so well. They probably ARE my friends and family depicted in them.
I have resolved myself to do more challenges each week. I am determined that I will do the Crazy 4 Challenges and of course the Friday Fun Challenges, and want to do the Splitcoast Sketch Challenge and Weekend Sketch Challenge as often as possible. If you see me on-line and I am not just taking a quick sanity break from my kids, yell at me and tell me to get back into the basement and STAMP.
A few details that I wish you could see are on the margarita glass. I used the Glaze gel pen to go over it so it is shiny...like a glass. I also used my stardust gel pen around the rim of the glass to simulate the salted rim. I accented around the outer edges only of the focal squares with some stardust little squiggles.
