Cheers! IPC 77


Hey everybody!
Coming to you today with some new inspiration for the current 
Inky Paws Challenge!
Check out the sketch we have for you.


Since it's been hot as blazes in California, I can think 
of nothing better than a nice cool drink.
From that thought and the inspiration sketch,
 I came up with this card.
Cheers! a card by Diane Morales| Cocktail Mixer Stamp Set by Newtons Nook Designs

Using the Cocktail Mixer Stamp Set. I started by creating the background.
Using Versamark Ink, I stamp my images onto white cardstock. 
I heat set those images with clear embossing powder.
Then, I applied Distress Ink using a tropical colors pallet all over the stamped images.
This is the fun part because there's no right or wrong way to do it! 
Just apply ink over the top of the Versa marked stamped image
 until you feel like you've reached the look that you are going for.
When you’re done applying your ink just take a paper towel or a cotton cloth 
and rub all the extra ink off so that the stamped image appears.

Next, I stamped out my images for the drinks, I colored those images 
in matching the bright tropical colors in the background.
I was having trouble deciding to what to put in the background element of the sketch, because I thought the background came out kind of cool looking and did not want to cover it up. 
I decided to grab some vellum and use that as the background element. 
I like the way you can see through the velum and I think it adds 
kind of a cooling effect to the bright colors.
To that I added a strip of blue washi tape to match the blue Hawaiian drink I created.
To creating the forward-facing element on the sketch, I used the “cheers” stamp from the stamp set and my Versamark Ink. I stamp on a rectangle of white cardstock.
 I heat set the images with clear embossing powder. I added the sentiment on the top and then added my drinks on top popping them up with foam tape 
and added the “cheers” sentiment, which I also popped up with foam tape.


Now that my card is done, it is time for you to show us your cards and projects. 
Use the challenge picture above to link up your projects.
Thanks for stopping by.
