Evening all! I hope you've had a good week! I re-claimed my craft room last night after it became a storage room while we decorated our bedroom! It's all lovely and finished now so I have my little space back and I made this card. It's for my Brother-in-laws birthday next month. There's a few steps to how I made the beer glass so I'll explain - if you're interested! ;-) I started with some Crushed Curry card stock and matching ink which I smooshed onto my craft sheet. I then mixed in some white embossing paste to make it a paler version of the card stock colour. I used the Falling Snow stencil and the now yellow embossing paste to make beer bubbles in the glass. When that was dry, I cut it to size, inked the edges with more Crushed Curry ink and then gave it a few spritzes of Colour Shine Gold spray. The Cheers was cut out 5 times, glued together in a stack and covered with Wink of Stellar in gold. I'm going to enter this into this weeks CASology challenge of Wet and also this months Virginia's View challenge of Stencils. I hope you like it, thanks for looking!
