Happy Hour

Hi there,

we are starting a Clean and Simple Challenge over at Moving along with the Times:

  • stamp the cocktail from the Paper Smooches Get outta Town stamp set with Memento (Tuxedo Black) and mask it off
  • afterwards stamp the hibiscus flower and the sentiment from the same stamps set with the same ink - I used my MISTI for the sentiment to stamp it twice for a really crisp impression
  • do some partial die cutting with one of the My Favorite Things Zig Zag Stitched Circle STAX and let some petals of the hibiscus flower hang outside the circle
  • color the images and the background with Delta and Touch Twin Brush Markers
  • use the Kaisercraft Type embossing folder on a strip of white paper
  • ink up the embossed strip with Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon)
