Lemonade Sketch

Cardabilities - Sketch #26

Paper Makeup Stamps is sponsoring this week's sketch challenge at Cardabilities.  One lucky participant will win a $15 gift certificate!  Be sure to check out some more samples from the Makeup Artists on the PMS blog

The half circles on this sketch reminded me of the citrus stamp from Freckled Lemonade.  I used some yummy papers from from the Sparkle and Ruche collections at Paper Temptress for a very sparkly card.  I embossed some extra shimmery lemons with Versamark Dazzle Frost ink and clear powder on Sparkle Mangue cardstock.   The red paper is Sparkle Vermillion cardstock and the glass of lemonade was actually stamped on Sparkle Blanc for a shimmery effect there too.  If you click on the photo to enlarge it, I think you can see all the sparkle a bit better.

White Crepe Ruche cardstock gives my background such great texture and it absorbed the ink perfectly for my sentiment without bleeding or omitting any of it.  Love it!  {grin}
