Anyone for Green Beer?

Here's today's Card Sketch for all of you to play with.
Anyone in the mood for some green beer?





Of course, I am only able to color the beer green because this is a St. Patrick's Day card. Any other use and I would have had to color the beer yellow. Makes for a fun card though, doesn't it?





I colored the mug with my Prismacolor Pencils and blended different shades of greens and yellow with Gamsol. Then I used Liquid Applique to create the foam at the top of the mug. I also applied Diamond Glaze to the beer mug to make it really look like glass.



Stamps: DRS Designs- Giga Shamrock Blessings Oval, Small Beer Mug, Shamrock Background, Happy St. Pat's Day Sentiment
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Colorbox Pigment Ink in Green and Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink in Lime Pastel
Paper: Smooth white cardstock by Office Depot, Colored Cardstock by Bazzill and American Crafts
Accessories: Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol, Diamond Glaze, Liquid Applique, Nesties, Brads by All My Memories, Martha Stewart Zig Zag Border Punch, Ribbon-Michael's Go With The Grain
Finished Card Size: 6" x 4 5/8"




I just received a package of happy mail from DRS Designs! Gotta love new Rubber! Woo Hoo! Make sure to visit here daily, I'll have some sneak peeks of the new images to shown you very soon! They are just too cute, you're not gonna want to miss the sneak peeks, trust me!

Have a great day!

Smiles,
