Under the Influence
This one, I am tickled with the result.
I made this card for the Ways To Use It #203 challenge, which was to use alcohol in some way. Of course, I chose to use my Copic markers, which are alcohol markers. But then, I decided to use alcohol as my inspiration for the card. I spotted this awesome image by Stamps Happen on my shelf, and I needed one more Valentine...and, somehow, everything just came together. I decided to mix up some Valentine's Day cocktails with my coloring choices and, when I ran an errand this afternoon, I thought of the sentiment which reads, "Under the influence......of your love". Kinda clever, huh?
The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Neenah Solar Crest cardstock. Colored cardstock, patterned paper, silver heart brads, ribbon and a scallop punch were also used to create this card. The sentiment is computer-generated, and I did a little paper piercing too.
Now, if only all cards I make could come together this nicely.
And, sadly...it's back to work I go. But, going to work for one day, and then having a weekend, isn't so bad.
