Today is Bartender Appreciation Day, so my team mates at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges are celebrating in our own special ways.

Ppinkydolls Art is sponsoring our Outlawz Coloring Challenges during December.

You should definitely enter this challenge. If you've got any sort of stamps that feature beverages, you can enter! All you need to do is color an open line image with any colorant you choose! You should also visit my Outlawz Coloring Challenge Teamies' blogs for inspiration! Carla, Penny, and Laine are seriously talented!

Here's my card that features Rubbernecker's Margarita Glass and the lime from their Garnish set.

The Margarita Glass was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, colored with Copic markers, then fussy-cut. A VersaMarker pen was used to color over the image (except the salt) and then heat embossed with Filigree Clear Detail embossing powder. This process was repeated three times to build up layers of dimension and shine to the glass. When I was happy with the result, I added some glue to the salted rim and dumped on Prisma Glitter and let it set. Sadly you can't see the glassy dimension from this photo, though you can actually see the glitter!

I layered the patterned paper from the Sweet Threads 6x6 pad by Basic Grey according to a sketch from Cheerful Sketches Challenge Blog. Circles were cut using my ancient CM Cutting System. The edges of all layers were sponged with Black Soot Distress ink.

The lime from Rubbernecker's Garnish set was stamped three times with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, colored with Copic markers, then fussy-cut. The lime segments were coated with a layer of Clear Gelly Glaze pen to make them appear moist and fruity.

The Margarita Glass was adhered over the circles, though apparently I was feeling a bit wonky seeing as the vertical hearts are diagonally. Oh well... 

Some chunky silver glitter by Stampendous was added under the glass to ground it. The three limes were adhered to the circle.

Silver glitter paper was die-cut with a Cheers die by Elizabeth Crafts and adhered to a tag die by Impression Obsession. Silver glitter paper was punched with a generic circle punch that I've had forever, then the glittery circles were added to finish the card.

Here's the sketch so you can see how I did.

Thanks for visiting today!

I shall enter this card in the following challenges.

  1. Fantastic take on that sketch, Kathi! Including your wonky heart paper, lol! You did so many things to create the perfect margarita! I'll have one, please, to start. Then some chips, guac, and salsa! Mayhaps another drink, if the first one wasn't too strong! ;^)
