Happy Monday! I know what you're thinking! "What the heck?? It hasn't even been a week since she last posted!" What can I say -- I had a burst of energy & a bit of free time!
I really wanted to play along with the Sketch Saturday peeps this week & I've also been dying to ink up a Penny Black stamp. Any PB stamp would do, it had been way too long since I've visited my adorable critters!
This cutie is called Kickin' --- ahhh that's what I'd like to be doing right now! And I'm pretty sure my lemonade (or is that a cherry limeade perhaps) would have a lil shot of somethin' in it :) The sentiment is from Amuse - I just love their sentiments!
The image was stamped onto Cryogen Shimmery White paper & colored with Copics. I added a bit of clear glaze to his beverage for a bit of shine. The papers are Basic Grey Sultry -- remember that collection? I've really been digging into the paper archives lately! Use what you have, right? I also used SU's Pink Passion since it was pretty much the same exact pink, & for the first time ever -- Early Espresso! I just received my first Stampin Up order in about 2 years. I hadn't even heard of half the colors! I like Espresso -- a nice deep rich brown. Now that I've found it, they will surely retire it.
I sponged the tips of the pink flowers with Pink Passion & spritzed them with Glimmer Mist for some shimmer -- I was hoping to capture that with my extraordinary photography, but I don't quite think I got it. Perhaps if you click on the picture?
Besides Sketch Saturday, I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Penny Black Saturday -- Sing-A-Long ("You Are My Sunshine" -- yes it's a song!)
The Pixie Cottage -- Cuddly Critters
Make It Monday -- Anything Goes
Hope you all have a super week! I'm about to watch ma MAN do his THANG on DWTS -- nice way to end a Monday :)
