Hello readers and welcome back from the weekend! I hope you found a little time to do something crafty. It's Monday, so today we have a new challenge to share with you at Inky Paws Challenge. Challenge #134 is a color challenge. Using the colors shown in the image below, share with us YOUR creations!
I have a really fun martini theme Halloween take on this week's challenge colors for you:
*A full list of supplies is located at the end of this post.
This slimline card measures 8 1/2" x 3 1/2". Slimline cards are designed to fit into a regular #10 business sized envelope and require no additional postage. The base of this card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I used an orange spiderweb piece of paper for the first mat and it measures 8 1/4" x 3 1/4." Using the Slimline Frames die, I die cut the frame from black cardstock. On the left and right side of the frame are two alcohol ink background pieces made using Tim Holtz Ranger Alcohol Inks in the shades Lemonade and Valencia. I inked these two colors onto Yupo paper and let them dry before adhering them behind the frame.
I stamped the images from the Cocktail Mixer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo black ink on Neenah white cardstock. I colored the images with Copic markers (in the challenge colors) and die cut the drinks using the coordinating Cocktail Mixer dies. I also stamped the bat image from the new Batty Newton stamp set in the same Memento black ink on white paper. I colored the bat with Copic markers and die cut the image using the coordinating Batty Newton dies. I adhered all of the images to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. In the upper left corner of one of the alcohol ink backgrounds, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with black embossing powder. Lastly, I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to the images for added sparkle.
