Today I have a few note cards I made using Happy Hour. This is such a great set and it was my first time inking it up. I know what I'm going to be using these cards for later on, but thought I'd share them with you know.
|Paper: Berry Blossoms DSP (retired), Whisper White|
Ink: Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Wisteria Wonder, Early Espresso
Stamps: Happy Hour
Tools: Big Shot, Window Frames Framelits
I did some paper piecing with this project. I first stamped the drink in Early Espresso. After stamping the straw and mini umbrella, I pieced the liquid from the drink over top (cutting it out by hand from a scrap piece of paper). This not only gives the effect that the straw and umbrella are sitting in the drink, but also adds more colour. You could also get this effect using your coloured Stampin' Write Markers, but then you'd have to do some masking in order for the drink accessories to fade into the liquid.
What do you think?
Until next time, stay crafty!
