My husband needed a card at work. This is a 5×7 card. 
img_3394I started with a bristol smooth panel. I diecut the MFT soda pop bottles and straw with the same paper. I started with sponging the distress ink on the panel and doing the bottle simultaneously with that color. The paper is fabulous and helps the ink sponge smoothly. I used carved pumpkin(my favorite orange now), candied apple, scattered straw and tumbled glass. I added the matching color stamps on the bottle. I sprayed it with water and used a towel to lift off some color. My daughter suggested that I stagger the straws so that is what I did. Initially I stamped the sentiment directly on paper, did not like it so I rest amped it on another piece and cut it to size and popped it on the panel. I added shine with spectrum noir pen on the bottles. I added the pearls last from my stash.This was backed on a piece of black card stock. Now I love my black card stock so from the center of the panel I removed a piece so  do not waste paper.

I enjoyed thoroughly making the inside. This is the first time I used this MFT balloon stencil and I am in love with it.


I used tons of distress inks. I started with candied apple, then scattered straw, tumbled glass. The next row with carved pumpkin, shaded lilac, twisted citron. the next rho was the big spun sugared on the sides is squeezed lemonade, green(can’t recall the name) and ripe persimmon. I stamped Happy Birthday. While ding this I used lots of masking.

I am adding it to three challenges
