• Strawberry shake and tropical flowers

    Hi there,

    Confession, I don't always buy things when they're released. Other than the obvious financial reason, I find that if I wait I'll know if I REALLY need it in my life, lol 😄 
    So, for this card I wanted to use the new-to-me My favorite things Cool cup die.

    I have done alcohol ink backgrounds before, but never used my Copic refills. But to achieve the very light pink swirly background I wanted, I decided to use refills RV00 and RV02. I also have some RV06 on this, but I didn't use that part for this card. I wanted some glitter in my strawberry shake, so before the ink dried I simply added some Lawn Fawn chunky glitter. I didn't know if the glitter would stick, but it did!
    After it dried I cut the cup part. The whipped cream is cut from white cardstock and I decided to add sprinkles with my RV02 copic marker and I also added Spun sugar oxide ink along the edge. The straw was also cut from white cardstock and colored with Copics RV09 and RV06.

    I then stamped the 3 single flowers from Simon Says Stamp Strageness. I stamped them with SSS Barely beige, because I was planning to emboss them after coloring. But I changed my mind and left them with no line. This is my first try at no-line coloring, and I'm quite happy with the result. I used Copics RV09, RV06, RV02 and RV00.
    I then fuzzy cut the flowers and added craft foam to all the flowers and the cup.

    For the background I used SSS Star medalion stencil and Spun sugar oxide ink. The sentiment is from Avery Elle Sweetest and I first stamped it in Picked raspberry oxide ink, thinking that would be it. But I didn't like it, so I restamped with WOW! embossing ink and embossed with WOW! Primary fuchsia fusion. I hope you're getting the summer vibes off of this one!

    Thanks for stopping by, and happy crafting.
