When life gives you lemons...

...duh!  You make a drink!

Card version!

Postcard version!  I used grey Sharpie on the back to draw the lines for the address.
That is one good thing about this alcohol ink paper-- very little of the ink bled through.

Looking straight-on...

At an angle... the Snow Cap mixative adds a mica-like faceted illusion.  Very cool. Very geologic.

I picked up these stamps by Jillibean on an endcap at Micheal's two weeks ago... cheap!  Couldn't resist.

Supplies and notes:
  • Jillibean stamps inked with Tim's Mixed Media ink in Hickory Smoke (postcard) and Archival in Jet Black (card version)
  • Adirondack alcohol inks in Sunshine Yellow, Butterscotch, and Snow Cap mixative
  • I used Ranger alcohol ink paper for both of these... I bought it the same day I bought the stamps.  I am not "way into it"... I guess I need to play with it more.  I mean, it's thick and the ink doesn't go right through, but I felt like it impeded some of the "traveling" that alcohol ink does on other surfaces.
  • For the card-version, I edged the panel with Versamark and heat embossed with Black Recollections
  • The card version has DCWV paper from the "Hey Sailor" stack in the background 
I'll share this at Inkspirational's current challenge:
Nothin' says "chill" like a cocktail!

  1. Tequila. I remember one tequila evening out with a friend of mine. We had so much fun in so little time. I haven't had one of these drinks since. And it's probably 17 years ago or so. If I send my friend a card like this I'm sure she'd walk down that memory lane too. Impressive what a differe colored ink can do.
