Our awesome color combo came from our host Broni and inspired by Basic Grey's Marrakech line. These were really fun colors to work with and different than I would normally choose and they are just beautiful!
I chose to use this Olive Jar from the Happy Hour collection by Rubbernecker as my main image. After coloring with Copics, I cut it out and popped it up over the fun sentiment. I also cut out the olive and adhered it to a toothpick which I shortened and added some mica glitter flakes to the end to make it a party pick!
In the picture below I tried to capture the shine of the glass jar I created by painting Diamond Glaze over the image with a paint brush. I didn't want to squeeze it on like I normally do because I didn't really want to give the jar dimension, just shine. I would have used my clear gelly roll pen but it ran out about half way through!
I followed Broni's lead and I used some BG paper from the Marrakech line and some lovely satin ribbon from PTI. I cut out the sentiment with a rectangle Nestability and sponged on some Brushed Cordouroy Distress Ink from Ranger while it was still in the die. I also stamped a small margarita glass on the inside which you can see a bit here. It was much smaller than the olive jar and olive so I thought it would be a fun addition to the inside.
I hope you join us this week and try out these lovely colors! You will also be in the running for Featured Stamper and possibly Guest Designer...and you also might win a prize! Check out all the lovely samples from the ladies below!
