Cheers to You!!

Dashed into my craft room after a late dinner because there was one more card I wanted to try tonight!

~ Cheers to You card ~


I had this idea in my head and I really want to play in the Curtain Call challenge so I sat down with the Tropical Paradise set from Sunny Studio Stamps and whipped up this tasty card! I stamped with Versamark ink and embossed the images in white. Then I stamped each of the images onto a post-it note so I could mask them and do the circle of shading with Cool Caribbean ink (SU!) My “Ziggy“s were used to color the images and make a grey base for the scene. The sentiment was then stamped in the same color as the circle and I added a few blue splatters – I am not sure the photo picked that up very well!!

    What a beautifully thought out Clean & Simple card, Taunya! Your masking really makes this a “wow” card. And your colours? Perfect for a nice, hot summery day. My only complaint is that I can’t taste that delicious looking drink you’ve featured. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

    Summery sunshine at its best! You sponged and colored just perfectly to give this card a smooth beachy feel! I’m sorry I’ve been such a bad bloggy friend of late, the month of June snuck away from me somehow, but I’m working to fix it!
