Happy Birthday Drink


Today's card is being entered into the following challenges:
Create A Smile We dare you to create a smile : Mood board
Lil Patch of  Crafty Friends Challenge #130

Today is the 14th day I am participating in The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge! I have found it to be great motivation to work on my coloring. Have you had a chance to play along?

This card is created around a freebie digital stamp by Create A Smile. After printing the digital stamp. I brought out my Amazon makeup brush to apply distress ink to the drink part of the cup image. As for the umbrella and fruit, I used colored pencils on that. (Link to watching how I use colored pencils and blend.) I then fussy cut the image out and popped it up with 3M foam tape. After that I brought out my water bottle and spritzed the drink. And used a paper towel to clean up the water. This created a condensation and more of an actual drink-y look to the image. I then stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment under the cup.

Paper: CTMH White Daisy
Ink: CTMH Archival Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Mustard Seed, Lucky Clover, Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade
