Happy Mardi Gras! Let the good times roll! To that end, here's a card with Cocktail Parade, a Rubber Romance stamp available at I Brake for Stamps.
White Copic-friendly cardstock was randomly sponged with Milled Lavender and Antique Linen Distress inks (Ranger). Milled Lavender Distress ink was sponged over the Harlequin stencil (The Crafter's Workshop). Cocktail Parade was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Imagine Crafts). Post-it notes were used as a mask to cover the stamped image and background then Antique Linen Distress ink was sponged over the base area to ground the image. Milled Lavender Distress ink was sponged over the hearts portion of the Punchinella Quintet stencil (Joggles). The Cocktail Parade was then colored with Copic markers. White gel pen was added to the reflection area of each cocktail glass.
The image panel was die-cut with one of the dies from the Classic Rectangles Nestabilities die set (Spellbinders). All of the patterned paper is from the Antique Library 6x6 pad (Wild Rose Studios). One of the dies from the Fishtail Flags die set (Die-namics) was used to die-cut a polka-dot flag. The Cheers die (Elizabeth Craft Designs) was used to die-cut a relatively solid piece of patterned paper. Some of the edges were sponged with Milled Lavender Distress ink, while other edges were distressed with the Paper Distresser tool (Tonic Studios).
