Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past Blog Hop

[If you're looking for my FTTC card, please scroll down to the next post. Thanks!]

You've either happened upon Taylored Expressions' second Blast From the Past Blog Hop or you're here from another site on the hop. Whichever, WELCOME, I'm so glad you stopped by!

I've had this Chillax set for a while and hadn't inked it up (I KNOW!), so I pulled it and my Citrus paper pad from K & Co. out for this card. I started out using the supplied inspiration piece but I think I got off track somewhere, LOL!


OK, so it was supposed to *inspire* me and it did inspire me to use my citrus-y colors so I guess it did it's job ;-) Anyway, I stamped the drink glass on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers, then cut it out. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of patterned paper and stamped the lime slice a second time, colored it, and popped it up on foam. I tried adding some green Stickles to the lime slices but it covered up my shading so I quickly wiped it off, LOL! Some stitching, some light sponging, and some ribbon finish it off. This was a VERY fun card to make!

Thanks so much for stopping by! And many thanks to Taylor for having me along! Here are the rest of the entries for the hop so go look and leave some love--I'm sure there will be lots of fabulousness and inspiration to see!
