Yummy Yummy

I'm in Atlanta, it's hot and humid.... I'm working on this card.... and thinking about what we are doing for dinner... I believe I know what I'll be drinking....
So this card started with the background paper as the inspiration and then grew from there. The margarita was stamped on white and I colored with Copics, the stem was paper pieced from the pattern paper. I stamped it on Neenah Classic Solar White with the new Memento Ink that everyone is raving about. They claim it does not bleed at all with the Copics ..... It's true! It did not bleed and I really tried to make it, usually I avoid my stamped lines-- and I just colored right over them with my blender and markers. I'm impressed. The floral embossing is one of the new CB folders. I colored in the depressed part of the flowers with Spica pens. I used a Chestnut Cat's Eye to chalk it up a bit. I used my nesties to create the scallop edge along the bottom of " [got margaritas?]". Then I used my Japanese Screw Punch to create the holes there along the border and around the brown circle under the margarita. Prima, a little bling and of course a little crystal lacquer over the margarita glass. Finished card is an A2.
