A Country Girl's Cocktails
Everyone knows that a country girl's cocktail of choice is beer - LOL!! (Well - unless you believe the Toby Keith song and then it's whiskey - hee hee...) This crazy card is my submission for today's Ways to Use It challenge over on SCS - today's challenge is to use alcohol - it can be alcohol inks, a technique with rubbing alcohol, alcohol markers, alcohol image, etc. - you can view the challenge details here. I used "Hay Hanna" from Hanna Stamps for my card today - she holds a special place in my heart as I grew up as a country girl here in small town Indiana. I colored her in with my Copic markers - which are alcohol ink markers - you really gotta love the amazing blendability of the ink in these markers. And then in the spirit of the challenge - I added an alcohol themed stamp to my image - I masked off my Hanna image and then stamped the beer image from the Hanna Stamps "Mikey" set behind her to look like she was holding it in her hands behind her back. I chose some red gingham DP to match her shirt - it is made by Die Cuts with a View. I added some black brads and some black layering to my cards to make that red pop a little more. I also tied some ribbon to one of those little swirl-y clips and attached it to my image for a little accent. The sentiment is from one of those little Inkadinkado $1 stamp sets. Thanks so much for stopping by!!
